Head PhotoWelcome!
We are delighted that you are considering Myddelton College for your child's schooling. We aim to provide a unique blend of 21st century learning and the best of British education in the heart of the Welsh countryside. Our prospectus will tell you more about our special qualities and offer an insight into what makes Myddelton College 'more than just an education'.

At Myddelton College every student is treated as an individual. Every Myddeltonian has their own strengths and unique story to tell. It is our job to develop and nurture these qualities so that they shine through to help each student become the best they can be in life.

While we place high value and great emphasis on academic success, we also take a holistic view of education. Our ethos of developing and nurturing each individual student means that we value the arts, a love of the outdoors and sporting ability just as highly.

We have founded our school upon the 'Three Pillars of Myddelton'. These are the three areas in which we believe every Myddeltonian should excel: Resilience, Scholarship and Fellowship.

Resilience: Our students are taught to never give up in the pursuit of goals and achievements. We teach them how to cope with setbacks and learn from them. We help them develop a positive mindset that embraces challenge, makes no excuses and is never defeated.

Scholarship: We instil in our students a love and a passion for learning. We teach them not to be nervous of academic rigour. We celebrate it and indeed expect to see it in every single lesson.

Fellowship: We place great emphasis on our supportive community and developing a young person with an internationalist outlook. We teach our students that the biggest impact they can have on another person's life is simply by being kind and thoughtful to them. We uphold this value every day at Myddelton College.

As head, I have been involved in education for more than 15 years. In that time, I have worked in schools all over the UK. I have worked for outstanding state and independent schools across North Wales. I have given lectures to trainee teachers at Cambridge University. I have taught in struggling schools in Essex. I was involved in the set-up of a new inner city school, teaching students in one of the toughest parts of London.

My title as Headteacher, and not Headmaster, is important because I do still teach lessons. Teaching is the best job in the world. I have the privilege of being able to teach the artists, engineers, musicians, politicians, authors and leaders of tomorrow. I am passionate about teaching and education.

And what have I learned from my varied experiences in education to date?

I have learned that conventional education is failing. Indeed, this is one of the key reasons why Myddelton College was established. We do things very differently here. From our use of 21st Century technology and skills in every lesson to our ground-breaking Learning Through The Outdoors programme, we have stripped away some of the shackles that prevent so many schools from delivering a curriculum that is truly suited to the modern age.

I invite you to read through our prospectus and then arrange a visit during which you will be able to chat to students, witness the technology in action, explore our remarkable campus and see for yourself just what a special place Myddelton College is.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit, please get in touch with our admissions team. I personally look forward to welcoming you to Myddelton College and presenting our remarkable campus to you.

Yours Sincerely,

Mark Roberts
Myddelton College Headteacher
