Christ College is one of the oldest and most successful schools in Wales. Founded in 1541 by Henry VIII, it occupies an enviable site on the outskirts of Brecon, in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The school buildings reflect its ancient past as well as its determination to provide the best modern facilities possible for its pupils.

There are 400 pupils at Christ College Brecon, a size which enables it to offer a wide range of A-level and GCSE subjects and extra-curricular activities, whilst giving everyone the chance to form close friendships and to develop a real sense of belonging. Sixth Form pupils have access to a Leadership Course enabling them to develop additional team-building, communication and problem-solving skills. Parents and guardians value the outstanding staff:pupil ratio as well as the unique care and concern that pupils receive at Christ College – support from highly qualified and experienced staff which extends beyond the classroom to every aspect of daily life and leads to a high level of achievement in both academic and non-academic areas.
