We are looking for a talented and driven specialist to join us as Head of Geography/Head of Faculty: Humanities.
The Bishop of Llandaff is an 11-18 co-educational Church-in-Wales High School. Located in the heart of Llandaff, the school is heavily oversubscribed and students attend from all over the city and in the surrounding authorities. Standards at the school are very high. In 2018, the school achieved outstanding examination results at both GCSE and A Level. At GCSE, 92% of students gained 5 or more A*-C grades at GCSE, with 82% including English Language and mathematics; 43% of students achieved 5 or more A*-A grades, while more than a third of students achieved 9 or more A*-A grades. The pass rate at A Level was 99%, with 86% gaining A*-C and 68% at A*-B and 34% of all grades at A*-A. However, the school is more than just about examination outcomes. Students take part in a broad range of activities that help them become "well-rounded" and our strong Christian ethos helps shape our students to become positive role models in our society. It genuinely is a happy place to learn and work!
