Welcome from the Headmaster / Croeso oddi wrth y Pennaeth

Our school is a community of students, teachers and parents where achievement, friendship and faith are central aspects of our daily work together, shaping the course of our young people's lives as they move from school to university and the world of work. We aim to provide girls and boys with the highest aspirations in their learning and also the values to bring rewarding careers and mature family relationships in adult life.  Academic work, playing and competing in sport, making music of the highest quality, participating in drama and many other facets of growing in knowledge and understanding are given due importance.

Our unique heritage, in the tradition of Catholic Christianity, calls us to hold the highest values of faith, hope and love for one another. We hope that you will enjoy learning more about this young and still developing school, which has already achieved an enviable reputation amongst the very best in independent education, both in Wales and amongst distinguished peers in England.  Our aim is to create the best possible education for our girls and boys, and our young women and young men.

Dr David Neville M.A. (Cantab), B.Sc. [Cambridge & Bristol]
