Students from other schools transfer to Cardiff Academy for years 10 and 11 for a wide variety of reasons. Common reasons include insufficient individual support because of large classes and lack of academic support for very bright students. We currently have a high retention rate of GCSE students continuing to study A levels with us. Indeed, some of the very best A-Level grades achieved by Cardiff Academy students have come from those students who have spent both their GCSE and A-Level years with us.
In years 10 and 11, students at Cardiff Academy follow a “Core Curriculum” consisting of the following six subjects;
Biology | Chemistry | English Language | English Literature | Mathematics | Physics
Students may then choose up to four additional subjects from the following list;
Art | French | Geography | German | History | ICT | Law | Psychology | Sociology | Art | Photography
Other subjects may be possible on request depending upon demand and teacher availability
Small class sizes (no more than eight students per class)
Expert teaching from subject specialists, most of whom are also Examiners
High degree of individual academic and pastoral support
Regular exam-based testing and feedback
Expert, up-to-date advice and support as regards A-level subject combinations and careers
