St David's Celebrates Successful Start to its 30th Year

We are very pleased to announce that we welcomed over 800 young people to our open evenings this month to showcase the College and its course offerings ahead of the 2018-2019 academic year. We have also seen a 33% increase in completed applications on last year and look forward to spending the next nine months getting to know our applicants through events, guidance sessions, taster days, and much more.

This year we are celebrating our 30th year of educating young people in Cardiff, and we are proud to have supported thousands of students in building solid foundations for their chosen careers. This includes some household names and entrepreneurs including the Channel Four weather presenter Liam Dutton, X Factor star, Lucy Jones and Kris Agland of the Cardiff Devils.

Speaking of its anniversary and open evening success, St David’s College Principal, Mark Leighfield said:

“We’re very pleased to welcome so many students to our college and to be considered as the sixth-form of choice for the next generation of learners. We offer a variety of courses ranging from sciences, to humanities and arts-based subjects, in both A level and BTEC pathways. Our experienced staff work hard to maintain high standards, ensuring all of our learners receive the support that they need to be successful”.

“We have been educating the young people of Cardiff for 30 years and have become a well-known and respected sixth form in South Wales. We continue to be blessed with tremendously talented learners. We are proud that many of our students have gone on to achieve excellent things thanks, in part, to the stimulating learning and supportive environment they receive at the College.”

Present students attending the college were able to showcase their work at both open evenings and many were chaperones for parents and prospective students, helping to provide a real insight into the College’s supportive ethos.

Mr Leighfield continued:

“Our student ambassadors are an invaluable asset to the College, providing tangible evidence of the way we nurture and develop our learners. We strive to be a community that gives witness to Christian values and our learners are at the core of our College”.
