Strive, serve, love, learn
Opening September 2019, St David’s Academy School (SDAS) is a unique and ambitious international establishment where children aged 3–18 will be educated, not only to access the world’s leading universities, but also to develop into extraordinary global citizens.
Located within a lakeside development extending over 700 acres at Llanilid, just five minutes north of the M4 between Cardiff and Swansea, the school and its extensive facilities will occupy 30 of these acres.
The building will be designed by Jonathan Adams – one of Wales’ foremost architects. Adams is perhaps best known for designing the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay, as well as many other landmark educational and civic buildings including the Combined Universities in Cornwall and the HQ of the Welsh Joint Education Committee (WJEC) in Cardiff.
The education curriculum at the school will be guided by a blend of modern, innovative teaching methods, nurturing confidence and intellectual curiosity. By teaching students how to think critically and act responsibly, they prepare them for success while developing thoughtful and outward-looking young people. Students will have the choice to board or attend day sessions.
