At Cymer we have a rich and exciting curriculum delivered by a highly motivated, qualified and experienced team of staff, committed to helping each student learn in the way that suits them.

Our curriculum has been designed with student choice in mind: it gives them the chance to tailor a programme of learning around their individual talents, needs and interests. Choices start for our students as early as Year 9. From Year 10 onwards students are offered an exciting range of subjects including specialised vocational choices within our 14-19 consortium with Ysgol Gyfun Gartholwg, Ysgol Gyfun Rhydywaun and Ysgol Gyfun Llanhari.

Post 16 we plan to introduce the International Baccalaureate from September 2010 to run alongside traditional AS and A2 Level examinations. This choice motivates students and provides them with a personalised learning experience so that by the time students leave Cymer, they have become architects of their own curriculum and their learning outcomes.
