'Opportunities for All' is at the heart of the work we do in the school’s established Learning Support department. 

The experienced, dedicated and proactive Learning Support Team endeavour to support our students in overcoming barriers to learning and helping them to become well rounded, successful members of the community.

The team offer an extensive intervention program for students with additional learning needs, with particular specialism in supporting students with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC).


The school has a Specialist Resource Base for students with ASC and as the first Specialist Resource Base of its kind in Cardiff, Cathays High School has paved the way for other schools.

The knowledge and expertise of staff and the excellent support offered to students has been recognised by Estyn and judged to be sector leading practice.


If you are still unsure then you can contact the Learning Support Team where further information can be gladly given.
