It’s more than a school, it is an experience in learning, fun and respect. Unlike some teenagers, my sons ethos and confidence have grown. He is happy at Saint David’s. They educate and bring out the best in the individual.

In November 2019, Estyn, the office of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education and Training in Wales, reported on their most recent inspections for St David's College. We were awarded 'Good' in 4 categories and 'Excellent' in 'Care, support and guidance'
As part of its summary of their report, Estyn said:
"Leadership at all levels is successful in fostering a collective vision of St David’s as an inclusive, nurturing family community that promotes engaging and beneficial learning experiences for all pupils. Pupils thrive in the calm and supportive environment, enhancing their self-esteem and achieving high levels of wellbeing during their time at the school."
"The school prepares pupils of
all abilities well for relevant further educational experiences and future
"The extensive outdoor education
programme lies at the heart of the school’s mission to help pupils acquire
confidence and self-esteem and to find and develop their gifts and talents"
St David's certainly changed my sons life giving him the confidence we never dreamt he’d have
