Cardiff West Community High School
Create your World

Welcome

Welcome to the Cardiff West CHS website.

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.

The school is currently closed as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our students are able to access online learning through MS Teams and engage with their teachers. Our Pastoral Teams are keeping in touch with all families with regular phone calls. Help with online learning can be accessed using the emails below. I would urge everyone to follow the medical advice and wash your hands regularly and maintain social distancing.

I look forward to meeting up with everyone again when it is safe to do so.

Stay safe and be kind to each other.

Mr. Hulland.

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.
