Penarth tops best places to live in the UK!

Posted: 6th May 2019

Top school in top location!

We’ve been rooted in the Penarth community for the past 100+ years, so have long been evangelical about the beauty and quality of life our friendly town and the Vale of Glamorgan offers Westbourne students, however, it’s great to read that Penarth has been voted one of the Top 10 Places to Live in the UK yet again, by the Sunday Times having first made the list in 2013.

With the headline “the best place to live in Cardiff, isn’t Cardiff, it’s a short ten-minute train ride along the coast!”

The coastline comes in very useful for Biology field trips!

Beyond the shops, parks and great local facilities, the stunning South Wales coastline forms an intrinsic part of school life, here at Westbourne, from GCSE and IB Geography and Biology field trips, paddle board lessons and those all important end of year celebrations down on the Victorian Pier, we’re able to offer students the very best of city and coastal life.

Thank you, the Sunday Times – having named Westbourne their IB School of the Year and recognised the town, it has been a great year here in Penarth!
