Situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park, Christ College is an independent co-educational boarding and day school. Founded by Henry VIII in 1541, the college is one of the oldest schools in Wales and educates and nurtures around 370 pupils annually between the ages of seven and 18.

The institution consistently achieves excellent results at A level and GCSE. Over the past three years, 43% of A level grades were A* or A and 87% grade A to C. Over the same period, 46% of GCSE results were grades 9 to 7. This strong track record, which is testament to the quality of the teaching and learning experiences the school offers, has enabled the majority of Christ College pupils to progress on to their first choice of course and university.

Christ College prides itself on its exclusive learning community, where the school becomes a second-home and pupils and faculty become family. Its second curriculum, https://youtu.be/3n28npJWRKU complements academic study and contributes to pupils' skills and character development, includes music, creative and performing arts and an excellent sport and outdoor pursuit provision, as well as the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Combined Cadet Force. Pupils have access to a high calibre coaching team, a range of facilities including modern fitness suite, astroturf pitch, hard tennis courts, indoor sports hall, 25m swimming pool, and utilise the nearby Brecon Beacons National Park for activities such as kayaking, rock climbing, and mountain biking.
