A message from the Principal
I feel privileged to lead this vibrant college that offers such enormous opportunities.
Since Cardiff Academy began in 1999, our students have consistently achieved places at some of the most prestigious universities in the UK, including Oxford and Cambridge, and many have gained entry to competitive degree courses such as Medicine and Dentistry.
However, what truly stands out from our list of A-level results and university placements is the sheer range of universities and degree courses to which our students have gained entry over the years. This is a reflection of the fundamentally inclusive nature of Cardiff Academy as well as a representation of our core ethos – to inspire students across the entire ability range to achieve more than they ever believed possible.
Our constant aim in all cases is to build confidence in our students by installing in them the same passion for learning as that of their teachers, whilst also creating a secure and friendly environment in which they grow into learned young people. In order to achieve these goals, we require only the most talented, experienced and dedicated teachers who are not just well-qualified, but also true enthusiasts of their respective subjects.
Dr. S.R. Wilson,
