Welcome

Mblspwebsite2Thank you for visiting our website. We are 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, Caerphilly, Rhondda Cynon Taff and Bridgend. 

We want our students to have the best start in life by providing them with an oustanding education! We seek 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 2019, our students achieved oustanding GCSE and A level results in the reformed qualifications, key performance measures and new specifications. In Year 11, 98% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, with 87% including English Language and mathematics. Students performed well across all subjects, resulting in 48% of students achieving 5 or more A*-A grades. Our best 9 score of 449 points is the equivalent to, on average, each child in the year group achieving 9 B grades. In Year 13, students shared similar success with 34% of all grades achieved at A*-A, 85% 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’.

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. 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!

Partnership Arrangement with Caldicot School, Monmouthshire

Dear Parents/carers,  Re: Partnership Arrangement with Caldicot School, Monmouthshire  I write to inform you that the full governing body recently met to consider a request from Monmouthshire County Council and the Education Achievement Service (EAS) to develop a strategic relationship with Caldicot School. Caldicot is a very similar school to ours in terms of its profile and size. However, the school has been without a substantive headteacher for some time and the governors are looking to explore alternative models of school leadership.  Governors were invited to consider the partnership arrangement, which seeks to provide stability and a renewed impetus to the improvement journey at Caldicot. During the meeting, governors fully considered the implications of the proposal and the potential impact for our own school. Following lengthy discussions, I can confirm the governors have unanimously approved the partnership, which will begin in June 2019.  Governors have agreed to the request that Mr Belli provides strategic leadership for both schools as Executive Headteacher. In the first instance, we anticipate he will spend three days per week at Caldicot and the remaining two days at The Bishop of Llandaff. In recognition of this increased role and to support   Mr Belli fully, governors have agreed to make changes to the leadership structure of our school. Miss Parry will become Head of School. This means that she will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership of        The Bishop of Llandaff. One of the current Assistant Heads will then step into Miss Parry’s role as Deputy Head. This appointment will be made this week and we will notify you once the process has been completed. These changes will remain for the duration of the time Mr Belli takes responsibility for both schools.  As Executive Headteacher, Mr Belli will actively be involved in sustaining ‘excellence’ at our school at a strategic level. He will continue to work closely with the Head of School, other leaders and all staff to ensure our students continue to receive the best possible education.   As you know, over the past five years we have been active in providing support to other schools across Wales. Therefore, we have every confidence in our leaders to undertake this work effectively and without detriment to the overall quality of education provided to our students.  I am sure you will wish Mr Belli and the leadership team every success in this new venture.  Yours sincerely,  Reverend Canon Mark Preece  Chair of Governors
