Myddelton College is a top Independent Boarding and Day School, taking its name from the renowned Myddelton family who, dating back to the 15th Century, were eminent figures in the history of Denbighshire and Wales.
Myddelton College is a happy, caring and kind environment where pupils are encouraged to fulfil their potential, while always demonstrating honesty, kindness and respect. We have high academic expectations for our pupils, our curriculum is designed to equip pupils to thrive in the 21st Century. We are committed to giving pupils a diverse range of experiences in which they can develop personally and socially, as well as integrating a mindfulness curriculum to help our pupils cope with pressures of life in the outside world. At Myddelton, every pupil is treated as an individual and unique.
We do not just teach subjects, we nurture the whole child – mind, body and spirit. We inspire a thirst for knowledge as they set out on their journey of discovery. Expectations are high and pupils flourish not only academically, but also through our values of arts, a love for the outdoors, and sporting ability. The values of Myddelton have been founded upon our “Three Pillars of Myddelton.” These are three areas in which we believe every Myddeltonian should excel: Resilience, Scholarship and Fellowship.
Scholarship: We instil in our students a love and 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 to be kind and thoughtful to everyone.
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.
