Head PhotoCHRIST COLLEGE BRECON - A Place of Learning Since 1541

Christ College is one of the oldest and consistently most successful schools in Wales. It was founded in 1541 by Henry VIII and occupies an enviable site on the outskirts of Brecon, a safe, small market town in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The School buildings reflect the schools ancient past as well as its determination to provide the best modern facilities possible for its pupils. The Chapel and Dining Hall, both in daily use, date from the 13th Century when the site was occupied by a Dominican Priory.

Visitors to Christ College often comment on a 'special something' about the atmosphere in this unique school. It has something to do with our stunning location in the Brecon Beacons National Park and the opportunities this gives for outdoor education, sport and healthy, active growth. It has something to do with the long, rich history of the school. Since its creation over four centuries ago, the Christ College has evolved and developed without losing touch with that sense of heritage and belonging. Most importantly, it's something to do with the unique atmosphere of the school. Our strong, close-knit community is characterised by mutual respect and warmth, with each individual pupil's interests, skills and needs being appreciated and cared for.
