Welcome to the Cardiff West Community High School website.
We are a brand new secondary school serving the West of Cardiff. Our motto is ‘Create your World’ and we have an exciting partnership with the creative economy in Cardiff. As a ‘Pathfinder’ school, for the Creative Arts, we have the very highest expectations for all of our students.
Changes to the school day
School Day and the new Academic Year As a result of our recent consultation about changing the school day next year, I am pleased to inform you of the Governors’ decision. As you know, we are moving into our new building next spring and this is located next to Trelai Primary School. The Cardiff West CHS School Day for 2018/19 will be as follows:
9-10am Period 1
10-11am Period 2
11.20-12.20pm Period 3
12.50-13.50pm Period 4
13.50-14.50pm Period 5
The school will be closed 1/3/18. Please monitor social media for further information.
Due to the severe weather warnings and further heavy snow expected on Thursday and Friday we have decided to cancel this Saturdays session.
The school will be closed 2/3/18. Further updates will be provoded here and on Social Media.
The school will be open as normal tomorrow 5/3/18. As the conditions are likely to remain cold and wet on Monday, the rule on footwear (black shoes only for school) will be relaxed just for tomorrow and students may wear wellies or practical boots.
The £36m project will create a brand new home for the school next to Trelai Park in Caerau, and at eight form-entry, the new build will be able to accommodate up to 1200 pupils, in over 13,500 square metres of floor space.
Along with new school buildings split into three separate blocks, the 8.8 hectare site will accommodate new playing fields and a mixed use games area.
Admissions for the 2018/2019 year will open in November 2017.
