Why St David’s Catholic College?

St David’s College offers you an outstanding educational experience and treats you as an individual. First and foremost we strive to be a community that gives witness to our Catholic values and beliefs.

Students stepping into our classrooms can expect exceptional learning experiences. Our teachers are committed to fostering a supportive, engaging, and innovative environment. We prioritise individual growth, ensuring that each student’s unique potential is nurtured in the classroom.

Our campus-style location has around 1550 students each year, making us the right size to create strong and long-lasting friendship groups and networks, but still small enough to create familiar relationships with teachers and support teams.

Our students progress to universities across the UK and abroad, many attending the top Russell Group universities. In 2023, 38% of students who progressed onto university, progressed to a Russell Group university
