Cardiff Academy does not aim to compete with big schools in the state or private sector as regards facilities. We believe that what matters much more than this, especially at GCSE and A-level, is the quality of teaching combined with a supportive, nurturing environment in which students can learn and grow as individuals. This said, the facilities on offer to students at Cardiff Academy are very good indeed.
The Academy itself is housed in an elegant double-fronted Edwardian building in an architectural conservation area of Cardiff called The Parade. Other independent schools, colleges, Departments of Cardiff University and English Language Schools are located close by giving the entire area an academic feel.
As you would expect, all teaching rooms at Cardiff Academy are spacious, very light and well decorated. Because of this, teaching and learning at Cardiff Academy is a really pleasant experience.
Our student facilities include;
Two modern well-equipped Science Laboratories
A student Library for quiet reading and study
A modern, well-equipped Art Studio and Photography Room
A Music Room with piano, electric keyboards and recording facilities
A Student Common Room with digital TV and iPod dock
A Student Kitchen with microwave and coffee-making facilities
Despite the fact we have a student kitchen, most students prefer go off site to City Road – just two minutes walk away – to get their food and drink. Virtually every kind of food outlet from most parts of the world can be found somewhere along City Road. However, Subway, Rollcall and AJ`s appear to be most popular!
Another advantage in our location close to the centre of Cardiff is that it takes just ten minutes to walk from Cardiff Academy to Queen Street Railway Station, whilst Cardiff Central is only about fifteen minutes away.
