The school is ranked as the top co-educational boarding school in the UK for its A Level results by The Times and The Daily Telegraph, and puts a strong focus on helping local and international students alike gain entry to the university of their choice.
Cardiff Sixth Form College enjoys outstanding exam results: in 2014, 99% of grades were at A*- B grades with 95 % of grades at A*-A and 59% of grades at A* grade. 15% of students progressed to Oxbridge universities, and the school also enjoys notable success in placing students on Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine university courses.This exceptional success rate can be explained by small class sizes, expert and experienced teachers and a supportive environment that challenges students to produce their very best work.

These courses include Cambridge Pre-U, Healthcare Diploma, Revision Classes and Interview Workshops, so that every student is thoroughly prepared for the demanding application process to top universities.
