Cardiff Sixth Form College was founded in 2004 as a small, private tutorial college focusing on academic achievements. It has gained a name for itself as the Top Independent School in the UK, after catapulting to the top of the league tables in 2010, where it has remained ever since.
Its unique, ‘East-meets-West’ approach to education has developed from a careful study of the most successful teaching philosophies worldwide. The college integrates the rigour and discipline prized in Eastern education with the value placed on individual creativity and intellectual curiosity in the West.
The outcome of this global approach is not only unparalleled results, but a student body who go on to win places at a clutch of the most prestigious universities in the world. Over 99% of students achieve A*s – Bs in their A Levels, with an outstanding 93% of them achieving all A*-As. This academic achievement is paired with a solid programme of university preparation for all students, now supported by the Dukes Education Consultancy. The match has enabled college alumni to receive offers from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, Ivy League universities such as Harvard, Princeton, and Dartmouth, and other famed world universities such as the University of Hong Kong, to name a few.
The college has won the accolade of being placed at the top of the Education Advisers’ league tables for the seventh consecutive year, in two categories: Top Private Co-educational Boarding School, and Top Independent Sixth Form College.
