The Bishop of Llandaff Church in Wales High School is an English-medium voluntary aided high school located in Llandaff.

The school hosts a specialist resource base, The Marion Centre, designated for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

To meet the demand for Specialist Resource Base places for students aged 11 - 19 with Autism Spectrum Disorder it is proposed to increase the designated number at The Marion Centre Specialist Resource Base from 42 to 66 places from September 2022.
