Cardiff West Community High School
Create your World


Welcome to the website of Cardiff West Community High School. We are an 11-19 Community focussed High School that serves the communities of Ely and Caerau in the west of Cardiff. 

Our vision at Cardiff West is "Create Your World" and this embodies everything we do in the school. We want to ensure that all our pupils have the opportunities and support to enable everyone to achieve their potential and go on and play a meaningful role in society. These opportunities extend well beyond the school curriculum and can be seen in the broad range of extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities available to our pupils. 

We have high expectations of our pupils to be their very best and we ensure that there are high levels of support in place to allow them to reach success. Uniform, attendance, punctuality and respect are the key pillars to success for our pupils and the partnership between home and school to support these is critical. 

Our core values of ambition, resilience and trust are at the centre of what we do at Cardiff West. 

We aim to be a truly community focussed school, one that opens its doors to our community and supports them in sharing our values and ethos. Our excellent facilities are available outside of the curriculum to support our cluster schools, community partners and wider user groups to ensure that our facilities are at the heart of our vibrant community.

With our improving outcomes, innovative support for pupils and excellent facilities, we strive to be the first choice for lifelong learning in our community.
