If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.

    A day in the life of…

    A typical day in the life of a CSFC student begins at around 6.30-7am, when they wake up, get dressed and eat breakfast with their fellow students in the canteen. The first lesson commences at 8am, and students remain in classes until lunchtime.
    Our Year 12 students take their lunch break from 12-1pm, whilst Year 13 lunch time is from 1-2pm. After lunch, students head back to their lessons. The last lesson of the day finishes at 6pm, but students won’t study this late every day and they will usually have some free sessions.
    When the school day has finished, students gather in the canteen to eat dinner, followed by dessert. Later on in the evening, they may decide to catch the shuttle bus to the gym or swimming pool, meet up with one of their hobby clubs or societies, relax with friends in the common room, catch a movie in the city centre or enjoy some quiet study time in their room.
    While there is no strict bedtime, the warden team discourages students from staying up too late, so they awake fresh and ready to study. At 10pm, all students must leave the common room and by midnight, students are expected to keep any noise to a minimum.

    On weekends, students go on college outings to local attractions like St Fagan’s Museum of Welsh Life, Garth Mountain, Castell Coch and the Pembrokeshire Coast, in addition to destinations further afield such as Bristol Zoo, the Palace of Westminster, London theatre visits and more.
