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 2016, the school achieved record-breaking examination results at both GCSE and A Level for the second year in a row. At GCSE, 99% of students gained 5 or more A*-C grades at GCSE, with 89% including English and mathematics; 35% of students achieved 5 or more A*-A grades, while nearly 40% of all grades were at A*-A. The pass rate at A Level was 99%, with 86% gaining A*-C and 64% of all grades at A*-B. 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!
We are looking for a highly effective and suitably experienced teacher to join us in September 2017 to help the school to become the 'best in Wales'. We are fully committed to this ambition and shall leave no stone unturned in pursuit of our goal. As a lead practitioner, the appointed person would support the existing outstanding English team to continue its excellent performance, while work with the leadership team to develop teaching across the whole school.
