Believe to Achieve

A Warm Welcome

Set within the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Christ College was founded in 1541 by Henry VIII and every pupil proudly bears the ‘h’ logo that links the current members of the school with the founder. Our school motto which is translated into English from Latin, means ‘They achieve because they believe they can’ and this remains as true of today’s pupils as it has been throughout the history of the school; developing personal confidence and the willingness to take on new experiences and challenges are among the core aims of the school.

One of the most special things about Christ College is the warmth of the welcome here and the quality of relationships throughout the school. Our community is a small, caring and compassionate one, where pupils learn to value kindness and service to others.

Our dedicated teachers are committed to far more than helping our pupils achieve their academic potential, they are also passionate about their character development, encouraging them to achieve their goals and to grow into confident and accomplished adults.

There is something magical about this place that can only be experienced first hand and I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to it.

Head of Christ College Brecon
