The Cathedral School is an independent institution for boys and girls age 3-18. The school is located in the historic city of Llandaff, just to the North of Cardiff city centre, which boasts the impressive Llandaff Cathedral, as well as a busy high street, a charming village green and a warm and inclusive community.

Since the Cathedral School is a Woodard School, its staff share a vision of a first class academic education, an extensive co-curricular programme which develops the skills and interests of their pupils outside the classroom, and a commitment to a high quality pastoral care within a Christian context. The school’s ethos can be articulated in six themes: ambition, care, thankfulness, opportunity, friendship and achievement.

The School Council and the Senior Management Team seek to ensure high quality leadership and management at all levels of the school. They are fortunate to have a team of such highly qualified and committed staff, good facilities and an extremely supportive parental body. They all have one aim: that each pupil should be cared for, and thrive both within and beyond the classroom.


The Cathedral School combines all the advantages of being a modest school, with extensive opportunities for pupils to hone their talents, skills and enthusiasms, but also to develop new interests. At the Cathedral School, there is something for everyone: from debating, archaeology, and chess, to rugby, hockey and rowing; there is plenty of opportunity for both the girls and boys to learn, develop and thrive.
