Thank you for visiting our website. I am delighted to introduce our school to you.
Caldicot is an 11-18 co-education school with over 1300 students in Monmouthshire. We are located between Chepstow and Newport and the school is easily accessible via the M4 corridor and on the northern side of the Severn Estuary.
We seek to ensure every child in our care achieves their full potential academically; develops the skills necessary to be successful in our ever-changing world; and understands a sense of morality guided by our honesty; tolerance; respect; and responsibility. We are committed to providing all students with high quality learning experiences, a strong pastoral system and an extensive range of sporting, cultural, physical and extra-curricular activities.
Caldicot School has a unique partnership with The Bishop of Llandaff CiW High School in Cardiff. As part of this arrangement, I am responsible for the strategic direction and performance of both schools as Executive Headteacher. I am based at Caldicot for three days a week, while the day-to-day running of the school is undertaken a Head of School. As a partnership of two schools, our intention is to share the best practice in learning, teaching and leadership to support sustained performance in both schools. I firmly believe Caldicot is a school with infinite potential. Our students, as you will see yourself should you visit us, are on the whole happy, hard-working and positive about the school. In addition, we have a committed team of staff who are enthusiastic and passionate about supporting the young people in our care.
Educating children is a great privilege and be assured that, here at Caldicot School, you we will seek to have the highest expectations of and for our students. We place great importance on working together in partnership with students, staff and parents to deliver our ambitions. Children have one chance at their education and we will leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of providing each student at Caldicot School with an outstanding experience.
I should like to thank those families who entrust their child into our care. At the same time, if you are considering sending your child to Caldicot School or would like to find out more do get in touch. We are open to visitors every day!
