We are delighted that you are taking the time to browse our website. We are the newest Secondary School in Cardiff and we opened in September 2017. We moved into our new building in April 2019 and we enjoy outstanding learning facilities. We are proud to serve the historic and diverse communities of Ely and Caerau in the West of the City.
We have three core values, Ambition, Resilience and Trust. Our motto is “Create Your World.”
Every student can achieve and we place a huge emphasis on supporting each individual and their family to maximise their full potential. The school is fortunate to have a unique link with the thriving creative economy in the city and we have 9 fantastic “Creative Partners” who enrich the curriculum and help us to offer experiences which raise aspirations and ensure that our students are highly employable.
In addition, we have a close link with Cardiff University through the CAER Heritage project.
Here is some additional guidance from the Cardiff Director of Education.
Stay safe and be kind to each other.
