The Bishop of Llandaff High School are again celebrating another set of stunning A level and GCSE results following the summer exams.
Nearly 40% of A level grades were at A* or A, a record for the school, while 87% of all outcomes graded at A*-C. The overall pass rate was 99%.
Some notable performances included:
Aaron, who achieved 4A*s and an A grade. Aaron intends to read medicine at Exeter University.
Gwynfor, who will study earth sciences at Oxford having secured 3A*s and 2As.
Isobel secured 2A*s and 2As and will read Law at Warwick University.
Bethan will study PPE at Birmingham after achieving an A* and 3As.
Claudia secured 2As, a B and a C grade and will study Criminology at Nottingham.
Amy will read English at Birmingham University after achieving 4A grades.
Other exceptional achievements include Rosie, who joined us in the sixth form from St Martin’s, Caerphilly and gained an A* and 3As; Adriel, who achieved 3A*s and an A; and Matthew, who secured an A* and 3Bs. Finally, two of our students have opted to travel further afield this autumn. They are Thomas, who will study divinity at Harvard University following his 2A*s and 2A grades and Ben, who achieved 3A*s and 2As. Ben will eventually read PPE at Princeton. However, prior to commencing his studies in America, he intends to undertake development work in Sierra Leone as part of his gap year, fully funded by the university.
Headteacher, Marc Belli, commented: “I wish to congratulate our students on a remarkable set of examination results. They have been an incredible year group and have contributed so much to our school community. These outcomes are a reflection of their talents and they are fully deserved.”
A week later, there was more cause for celebration as our GCSE students secured an outstanding set of GCSE results with 84% achieving 5 or more A*-C including English Language and mathematics. Under a new set of qualifications and supporting headline measures the school is delighted to report a staggering 41% of students achieved 5 or more A*-A with 15% of the year group achieving A*-A grades across the board. The 37 students who achieved straight A/A* grades were:

Headteacher, Marc Belli, added, “I am incredibly proud of the achievements of all our students today. We find ourselves in a unique period of curriculum change, where it is very difficult to make meaningful comparisons with the performance of previous years. However, against more demanding specifications and revised key performance indicators, our students have demonstrated their wonderful talents with these excellent results.”
