At The Bishop of Llandaff we aim to provide a broad range of extra-curricular activities to help stimulate students' minds and support healthy lifestyles.
We strive to provide all members of the school with opportunities to participate, whether in the form of recreational clubs or competitive inter-school activities. There are a number of clubs available for students of all abilities co-ordinated by staff at both lunch time and after school. Many students have used these as a platform to compete against other schools and gain representative honours at both regional and national level. The school is a recognised Welsh Rugby Academy, with a designated rugby officer who supports the introduction, development and participation in rugby across all year groups for both boys and girls.
Each year the school organises an expansive variety of educational visits and trips, which range from local day visits to residential visits abroad. Regardless of the distance travelled or duration spent, our primary aim is to provide students with opportunities beyond the classroom to develop their skills and broaden their knowledge of the world which they live in. Many departments also regularly organise subject specific visits, aimed at enhancing students' understanding of the topics being covered and the wider world of work.
There are plenty of opportunities for students to develop their skills and talents in creative and expressive arts. The school choirs and orchestra are integral to the life of the school and there are numerous clubs and opportunities for students to illustrate their art work at various public events.
Duke of Edinburgh
At school, students have the opportunity to achieve the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, at various levels. In Year 9 students are encouraged to work towards Bronze Award, while Silver can be achieved in Year 10 with a large number of sixth form students achieving Gold in either Year 12 or Year 13. Meetings take place regularly with planning for expeditions and completion of activities.
