More Testimonials 


“When I started with the Academy this was during a very difficult period and the atmosphere and support at the Academy was an enormous help an a huge relief from what I had experienced before.
I know it is a cliche, but I honestly do not think I would be where I am now or achieved what I have achieved had I not spent that year at the Academy. Within a short time, I felt like I was more a part of the family than a part of the school.
I have nothing but the utmost respect for the work that you do.” Charlie Westwood, English


“I don’t even know where to begin telling you how gateful I am for everything Cardiff Academy did for me. I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today if it wasn’t for all of you there. I found all my teachers at the Academy really caring, approachable and friendly throughout my 5 years. This teaching approach really increased my confidence and enabled me to work to my full potential. I was grateful for all the help with the UCAS application, too, and the interview practice. I had some of the best years of my life in the Academy and I miss it lots!” Anusha Sethi, Dentistry

“I very much appreciate being admitted to the college in the first place, particularly with a scholarship; it really helped my family. I can honestly say that my 2 years at Cardiff Academy were superb and the college environment was brilliant for me. I’ll be honest – I treated the college as a second home, with its relaxing atmosphere and chilled out teachers. One thing I know for certain is that this college helped to bring out my full potential and that I could never have done as well in another school. I will always be thankful!” Khorum Sarwar, Economics

“Thank you for letting me be a student at Cardiff Academy, for bearing with me when I was ill, making lessons and school time enjoyable, listening to me when I had a ‘special moment’ (and we won’t say how often that was!), letting me have the occasional rant, oh – and actually teaching me as well. I had a brilliant 4 years and may, at some point, try to sneak my way back in!” Louiselle Morris, Psychology

“Thank you so much for all you have done for me. I often think of Cardiff Academy and very fondly; I loved my 2 years there, especially because I always felt so supported, comfortable and accepted. I miss all of you!” Giorgia Cacace, International Politics

“Thank you very much for 2 years of quality teaching and support – words cannot express my gratitude.” Louis Jones, Criminology (Cambridge)
