Subject to the Local Education Authority’s conditions, Cathays High operates an open admission policy.
All students, regardless of background, culture and ethnicity are welcome.
The school’s catchment area normally guarantees admission to all students who live within it. Out of catchment admissions are subject to the school’s standard admission limit which is currently 240 places.
Parents wishing to transfer their children from another school should contact the Local Education Authority in writing, stating the reasons for their request.
Parents moving into the catchment area from outside the LEA should also contact the Authority. All prospective students with their families are invited to tour the school before starting and are actively encouraged to do so.
