St Cyres School is a co-educational foundation status comprehensive school and Sixth form college located in Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, 5.2 miles (8.4 kilometres) south west from the Welsh capital city of Cardiff. The school has produced several notable International sportsmen and sportswomen.

The school currently has approximately 1,479 pupils aged between eleven and eighteen on the roll (age nineteen in special circumstances) in years seven to thirteen, with a thriving sixth form of 251 pupils.

Former headmaster Brian Lightman returned to lead the school into the 2008 - 2009 academic year after a twelve month long secondment, when he represented the more than 14,000 members of the Association of School and College Leaders as UK President. During his year in office he travelled some 70,000 miles and gained an exceptional insight into the education systems of the UK and the other countries that he visited.
