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.


We have recently moved into our state of the art new build school on Penally Road (CF5 5XP) and all students now attend this site with the old Michaelston Road site now closed. This move has been positive for the school and most importantly the community in the west of Cardiff. We are excited to be able to now offer the most up to date and effective education providing students will opportunities and skills to aid them throughout their lives.


The site consists of a state of the art full size 3G+ football/rugby pitch, sports hall and activity suite. The main building has a range of differently resourced classrooms, labs and open learning areas such as a Science demonstration area, Maths/English breakout zones and computer suites. The building has many creative spaces including a hall with tiered seating, music practise rooms and a library area including a quiet pod for focussed reading. The third building on the South side is the Sixth Form Centre which houses a diverse range of rooms designed specifically with maximised learning in mind. Lecture theatres, laboratories, conference rooms, salon and classrooms are all equipped with the newest and most up to date technology and equipment providing students a gateway to further their education post 16.
