The Cardiff Academy

What Cardiff Academy stands for are the old-fashioned values of honesty, integrity, value-for-money, success through hard work, teaching professionalism and a continuing duty of care to each student we take in from the day they arrive to the day they leave. These values inform everything we do from our dealings with parents to our insistence that, although Cardiff Academy is a fee-paying institution, the students we teach always come first. These things make Cardiff Academy really quite different from most other private schools and colleges and stand as something of an antidote to commercialisation and commodification in education.

The reason for the difference in outlook and ethos between Cardiff Academy and other independent schools and colleges is that Cardiff Academy is owned by teachers for the benefit of parents and students rather than by an educational business for the benefit of shareholders and private investors.
