Caldicot is an 11-18 co-education school with over 1300 students in Monmouthshire. We are located between Chepstow and Newport and the school is easily accessible via the M4 corridor and on the northern side of the Severn Estuary.
Founded in the late 1950s, Caldicot School has provided an education to families from within the town and surrounding areas for more than sixty years. In 2017, the school relocated to a brand new site and now boast some of the finest educational facilities in the country.
Our vision, ethos and core purpose clearly shapes our behaviours and actions in supporting each member of our community as summarised below
Caldicot School is committed to achievement for all students through the promotion of excellence. We respect the rights of all individuals and aim to ensure all our students acquire the skills in readiness for adulthood.
We seek to ensure all our students are happy and safe; achieve their full potential; develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to take their place as responsible citizens in society. Our vision is to inspire students to value education as a life-long experience which will continue into the world of work and leisure.
At Caldicot, we promote the core values of honesty; tolerance; respect; and responsibility. This seeks to encourage students and staff to respect others within the school, our local community and wider society.
In June 2019, Caldioct entered a unique formal partnership with The Bishop of Llandaff, in Cardiff. An Executive Headteacher oversees progress, provision and leadership across both schools, while a Head of School is responsible for the day-to-day management of each institution. As a partnership of two schools, staff have access to the highest quality training and development to support student achievement and progress.
