Corpus Christi Catholic High School Careers Site Eteach (12215)


We are very proud of our rich Catholic faith, our history and our Welsh heritage and we are extremely proud to serve the Archdiocese of Cardiff.

Corpus Christi is a very successful, over-subscribed school, offering a broad and balanced curriculum with Religious Education at the centre. It is a thriving community in which we are well supported by our parents, parishes and partner primary schools. The Corpus Christi Pupil Profile, based on the Jesuit Pupil Profile, is at the heart of who we are and who we are striving to be as individuals and as a community.

Along with an excellent academic record, we also have an impressive sports track record. The school has a thriving Music and Drama department and the school production, along with the Christmas and Easter Liturgies, are highlights of the school calendar. The extra-curricular opportunities provided for our young people is broad indeed. Alongside sport and Performing Arts, it also encompasses the Humanities, MFL, ICT, Technology, Welsh, English, Maths, Science and Art.

Pupils have opportunities to join the many clubs which are on offer, at lunchtimes and after school. There are a raft of trips organised throughout the year, both in the UK and abroad. The Additional Learning provision and the Pastoral care support are second to none.

Our aim is to educate the whole child; physically, spiritually, emotionally and academically. We want all our young people to leave Corpus Christi as well-rounded individuals who are independent learners and thinkers, ready to take their places in the wider world as responsible young adults.

I do hope you enjoy looking at our website which, I am sure, will give you a fuller flavour of our school.
