A message from the Principal
I am delighted to have joined this fast growing vibrant college which has high aspirations for students, staff, parents and guardians. Since Cardiff Academy opened in 1999, students have consistently achieved places at some of the most prestigious universities in the UK, including Oxford and Cambridge. We pride ourselves on being particularly successful in supporting students wanting to follow courses in Medicine, Dentistry and Law. This high of level performance from our students was quite rightly recognised by Estyn in the recent Inspection report 2020 and has enabled all our current year 13 students receive degree offers of their choice. We are very proud of this achievement and it is a reflection of all the hard work put in by both students and staff.
We believe it is important to develop the whole individual and with our small classes and excellent level of teaching we feel we have the capability to inspire all students to reach their potential. Through our nurturing approach we are able to get to know the students very well and can easily anticipate where they may need additional support with their learning. Our constant aim is to build confidence in all our students, installing in them the same passion for learning as demonstrated by our outstanding teachers. We have carefully recruited staff who are hugely enthusiastic in imparting their knowledge to the learners. By creating this secure, aspirational learning environment we are confident that all our students will develop into well balanced young adults.
I am proud to be the new Principal of Cardiff Academy and, together with the students, staff and parents, will endeavour to build on the excellent foundations in order for the College to continue to thrive in the future.
