Cardiff Sixth Form College (CSFC) has announced plans to open a second campus.
The new facility will open in Cambridge in September 2022. CSFC will become the third member of the Dukes Education group to open in the city, following St Andrew’s College and Sancton Wood School.
The new campus is slated to include staff who teach at – or are alumni from – the nearby university, with pupils set to be offered university course-specific lectures and work placements alongside their studies.
Gareth Collier, principal at CSFC since 2015, will hold the same position on the Cambridge campus. Other teachers, boarding staff and careers professionals will also work across both sites.
“I am very much looking forward to this exciting new stage in the College’s development,” said Collier.
“We have been very successful at providing the type of education top students worldwide are looking for, and we work closely with the universities to ensure that the education, skills and opportunities we provide for our students fits with what they are looking for at undergraduate level.
“Cambridge is well-known as an attractive location across the globe, so to have our second campus right in the heart of a city synonymous with academic excellence fits well with the Cardiff Sixth Form College brand.”
