Our vision for a new kind of school in South East Wales

Charles Spurgeon Schools is supporting us to bring our vision of an exceptional, co-educational independent school to Cardiff which, based on a Christian foundation, will offer a unique educational experience based on the following core pillars:

An excellent education…

We have a vision for a school where academic excellence is founded on inspirational teaching that expands children’s horizons. We will focus learning on the wonders of the natural world and the best that mankind has produced in literature, science and the arts. Our school will provide a unique curriculum, grounding pupils with a comprehensive knowledge base to enable them to maximise their academic potential.

A caring community…

Through the application of our Christian values, our School will nurture the whole person, encouraging mutual respect and positive relationships among all members of the school community. Our school will provide dedicated, supportive pastoral care matched with high standards of discipline and behaviour, encouraging an environment where pupils of all backgrounds are able to flourish. Our school will do all this with a diverse and inclusive student body, ensuring that our unique education is accessible to all and leaves no child behind. 

A comprehensive curriculum…

Children are more than just a repository for information, and our vision is to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and character to flourish as socially responsible and principled adults. We will encourage pupils to debate openly, think critically and reason logically, building vital skills that will equip them to contribute to society for the rest of their lives. To facilitate this aim, enterprise will be a core element across all curriculum areas, preparing pupils for life in the real world with personal, business and social enterprise skills.

Crucially, in order to take this vision forward, we need to demonstrate a demand for a school like this, and particularly expressions of interest from parents whose children would potentially attend such a school. If you are interested, please complete the form below.
