“Our students have performed really well this year and we are extremely pleased with the results,” said Cardiff Sixth Form College Principal, Tom Arrand. “This year we are running both one year and two year GCSE courses here in Cardiff, preparing our students right from 14 years of age on a four-year pathway to top universities. Our students have benefitted from specialist teaching staff who have stretched the students beyond the curriculum, developing career and study skills that will take them into university and beyond.”Categories: News
