St John’s (Cardiff)
Founded in 1987, the school is housed in a beautiful Grade II listed building in landscaped grounds; its sports grounds are close by. It has always been a co-ed school and pupils are drawn from a wide area around Cardiff and Newport. A Catholic school, it welcomes pupils of other faiths. Its aim is to provide its pupils with high aspirations in their learning and the values to bring rewarding careers and mature family relationships in adult life. It has very good academic results and a good range of extra-curricular activities. A number of sports are offered, with both county and national representatives among the pupil body. There is a great deal of musical and choral activity of a very high standard; the school is the choir school to Cardiff Metropolitan Cathedral.
