Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for visiting our website. I am delighted to introduce our Mblwithwebbackgroundschool 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, Caerphilly, 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 2017, our students achieved oustanding GCSE and A level results in the reformed qualifications, key performance measures and new specifications. In Year 11, 94% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, with 85% including English Language and mathematics. Students performed well across all subjects, resulting in 41% of students achieving 5 or more A*-A grades. In Year 13, students shared similar success with 39% of all grades achieved at A*-A, with 65% A*-B, 88% A*-C and 99% A*-E. Many of these students left us to continue their studies at university throughout the country (and some abroad on full scholarships). However, we are most proud that every one of 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 an amazing 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’. I am a firm believer that children only have one chance at education and they deserve the very best! At The Bishop of Llandaff, we see it as our role 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!

We find ourselves in a unique period of curriculum change, where it is very difficult to make meaningful comparisons with the performance of previous years. However, against more demanding specifications and revised key performance indicators, our students have demonstrated their wonderful talents with these excellent results. This is a remarkable day for everyone associated with the school. I should like to congratulate all of our students who have worked so incredibly hard to earn the success seen today. The grades they have achieved will remain with them forever and is a reflection of their dedication and effort. While many of our students have recorded some of the highest outcomes in our history and possibly across the entire country, we are equally proud of all of our students who have met or exceeded their personal targets. Some of our strongest performances today have been achieved by individuals who have had to overcome significant challenges in recent times. Today is a day I am sure they will cherish for the rest of their lives! Following our stunning A level results last week, I also wish to reaffirm my sincere gratitude and heartfelt praise to the amazing teaching and support staff at school who have helped our students achieve such wonderful outcomes. They deserve a great deal of credit for the continued success at the school and have worked tirelessly to support the students to achieve so well”.
