The Oldest Independent Sixth Form Academy in Cardiff - About Us
What Cardiff Academy stands for are the old-fashioned values of honesty, integrity, value-for-money, success through hard work, teaching professionalism and a continuing duty of care to each student we take in from the day they arrive to the day they leave. These values inform everything we do from our dealings with parents to our insistence that, although Cardiff Academy is a fee-paying institution, the students we teach always come first. These things make Cardiff Academy really quite different from most other private schools and colleges and stand as something of an antidote to commercialisation and commodification in education.
For any fee-paying parent ensuring their child gains access to their desired university and course is pivotal. Therefore, choosing the right college to enable this progression is paramount. We are proud of our track-record of 100% success in placing students at their desired Universities over the past 20 years.
What parents and students have come increasingly to realise since we first set up in 1999 is that Cardiff Academy really is an institution which puts the child first. What they have discovered here is an educational ethos which respects the individual and values scholarship. Academic high-flyers excel in this system because our small class-sizes allow them to engage in academic debate with teachers who are true experts in their subject. As a result, students at Cardiff Academy are given the chance to show what they can do under the best possible circumstances and in the knowledge that, no matter what happens, we will never abandon them or let them down. This is a powerful message and one which is being increasingly recognised as such by more and more fee-paying parents and students in Cardiff and beyond every year.
