Headteacher's Welcome

MbsmallnewThank you for visiting our website. I am delighted to introduce our school to you.

The Bishop of Llandaff is an 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school serving the Christian and non-Christian communities within the city and surrounding areas including The Vale of Glamorgan, Rhondda Cynon Taff and Bridgend. 

Quite simply, we want to be the best school in the country! Our aim is to ensure every child in our care achieves their full potential academically; develops the skills necessary to be successful in our ever-changing world; and understands a sense of morality guided by the gospel values of love, acceptance, responsibility and forgiveness. These aims are delivered through a commitment to providing high quality learning experiences, a strong pastoral system and an extensive range of sporting, cultural, physical and extra-curricular activities.

We are a high performing school at all stages of learning, with outcomes in public examinations placing The Bishop of Llandaff amongst the best in the UK. In 2016, our students achieved record-breaking GCSE and A level results for the second year in a row. In Year 11, 99% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, with 89% including English and mathematics. Students performed well across all subjects, resulting in 35% of students achieving 5 or more A*-A grades. In Year 13, students shared similar success with 64% of all grades achieved at A*-B, with 86% A*-C and 99% A*-E. Many of these students left us to continue their studies at university. However, we are particularly proud that all our students had a progression route to the next stage of their lives, regardless of pathway.

Should you visit our school, you will see that our students are happy, hard-working and incredibly positive about their time at school. They genuinely are an asset to our community and visitors regularly comment on how friendly and polite they are. They want to receive the best possible experiences at school and become successful.

In addition to our wonderful students, we have a dedicated and talented team of teaching and support staff who are fully committed to providing all of our students with a first-class education. We believe we have some of the finest teachers in the country who help to inspire, motivate and challenge our students to be the ‘best versions of themselves’. Children have one chance in education. They deserve the very best and we see it as our role at school to ensure we provide them with this. We set the highest expectations of and for our students and we shall leave no stone unturned to achieve our goal. We will always focus on improving the quality of the education our young people experience and place great importance in working together in partnership with students, staff and parents.

Educating children is a great responsibility and an immense privilege. If you are a parent of a student already at the school, thank you for entrusting us with that job. We won’t let you down! If you are considering sending your child to The Bishop of Llandaff or would like to find out more do get in touch. We are open to visitors every day!

"Stunning" A Level results yet again

The Bishop of Llandaff are again celebrating another set of stunning A level results. The performance at A*-A saw record highs, with nearly 40% of all grades at this level; 87% of all outcomes graded at A*-C; and an overall pass rate of 99%. Some notable performances include Aaron Rucinski who achieved 4A*s and an A grade. Aaron intends to read medicine at Exeter university; Gwynfor Morgan will study earth sciences at Oxford having secured 3A*s and 2As; Isobel Dobbins secured 2A*s and 2As and will read Law at Warwick university; Bethan Cleverdon will study PPE at Birmingham after achieving an A* and 3As; Claudia Humphreys secured 2As, a B and a C grade and will study Criminology at Nottingham; and Amy Johnson will read English at Birmingham university after achieving 4A grades. Other exceptional achievements include Rosie Hughes, who joined us in the sixth form from St Martin’s, Caerphilly and gained an A* and 3As; Adriel McForrester achieved 3A*s and an A; and Matthew Beville-Anderson secured an A* and 3Bs. Finally, two of our students have opted to travel further afield this autumn. They are Thomas Burr, who will study divinity at Harvard university following his 2A*s and 2A grades; and Ben Roberts who achieved 3A*s and 2As. Ben will eventually read PPE at Princeton. However, prior to commencing his studies in America, he intends to undertake development work in Sierra Leone as part of his gap year, fully funded by the university. Headteacher, Marc Belli added, “I wish to congratulate our students on a remarkable set of examination results. They have been an incredible year group and have contributed so much to our school community. These outcomes are a reflection of their talents and they are fully deserved. Each student should be rightfully proud of their exceptional achievements and we wish them well in their futures, with many travelling to study at universities all over the country and some even to other parts of the world. It is sometimes easy to focus on those students who achieved the top grades but all of our students, regardless of their outcomes, have worked tirelessly to achieve their full potential. I should also like to express my gratitude to our tremendous staff who work endlessly to ensure our students do so well. They deserve a great deal of praise today and I hope they feel equally proud of these stunning achievements”.
