Cathays High School is proud to announce that it has been rated a Category Green school by the Welsh Government, an achievement that puts us in the top 25% of schools in Wales.To be rated a Category Green school you must meet the following criteria:
- Are highly effective – achieves good outcomes for learners
- A track record in raising standards
- Know how to improve and are clear about priorities – has a detailed and focused plan to ensure ongoing success
- Are capable of helping others improve – works collaboratively with other Cardiff schools to help raise standards
- Well run and with strong leadership
This is a fantastic achievement for Cathays High and is a reward for the hard work and dedication shown by both staff and students. Last summer 100% of students achieved the L1 threshold with 48% reaching the L2+ threshold. We are very proud of these results and the students that achieved them. As ever, we will continue to endeavour to improve them further in the future and ensure that Cathays High School remains a school that values development and improvement.
Across Cardiff, Cathays was one of only seven secondaries to achieve Category Green status.
