FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

CAN I SCHEDULE A SCHOOL VISIT?

Yes. Due to COVID regulations visits are restricted to those families looking to enroll for the academic year 2021-2022.

DO YOU FOLLOW CARDIFF TERM DATES?

Broadly yes. However, we do have more inset days than the LEA schools. Please see our school term date calendar at the bottom on this page.

DO YOU COVER THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM?

CMS is an independent school and therefore is not bound by the national curriculum. This allows us the freedom to offer something unique in the field of education. Our students typically do more grammar work, cover more mathematical concepts and are exposed to great geography lesson than required. In the early years they will cover less IT then in the national curriculum. We believe the Montessori approach excels at offering an integrated learning approach that the New Curriculum for Wales calls for. Please see the about us section for details of our approach. 


It is important to highlight that we track the progress of our students to ensure they are making progress in line with their peers. 

CAN I USE THE 'CHILDCARE OFFER FOR WALES' 30 HOURS TOWARDS FEES?

No, we are sorry this is not possible at our setting.
