If you are considering moving to Wales and you are a parent, it’s important to ensure that there is a suitable secondary school for your children. Secondary education is crucial in helping equip your children with the grades they need to help them progress to higher education in an increasingly competitive university admissions system, but also providing them with the life and social skills they need for their adult lives.

You are fortunate that Wales is home to some of the best schools in the UK. Want to provide your children with a quality education in Wales? Now is the time to do your research on some of the top secondary schools in Cymru.

Mary Immaculate High School, Cardiff

This very impressive school sets out to provide a quality education for its pupils in order to prepare them for the challenges of adult life. A Catholic School, it is proud to serve the Catholic community of Cardiff, as well as pupils from other religious and non-religious backgrounds. The school not only ensures top grades that will help pupils amidst growing competition for university places, but it also equips them with a sense of morality guided by the gospel values to make them better people. Cardiff is becoming an increasingly popular place to live – with its unique attractions, world-class entertainment and sport and quality shopping facilities, it isn’t all too surprising.
Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr, Swansea

Since it was founded in 1984, the school has consistently attained high academic standards at all levels. As well as being successful academically, the school enjoys similar success through its vibrant extra-curricular life and in particular in its sporting life. One of the greatest strengths of Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr is that it regards every pupil as an individual and can tailor their education around their individual needs. The school is situated in Swansea in South Wales, which is certainly an appealing place to live due to its impressive contrast of bustling city and stunning countryside, historic and contemporary architecture and of course the grand parkland and throbbing surf.
