Students from Llanishen High School with results

Llanishen High School is celebrating a triumphant 2022 A Level Results Day.  As a community-led high school based in the heart of Cardiff, Llanishen High School saw 100 students receive their A Level results on Thursday.  Within these results:

  • 30% of all grades were achieved at A* to A
  • 64% of all grades were achieved at A* – B
  • 87% of all grades were achieved at A* – C

Of the 16 students who achieved at least 3 A* and A’s, three are statemented students who are members of Llanishen’s Autistic Spectrum base.  Along with those in the school’s Hearing-Impaired Unit and Learning Support base, these students have excelled and risen above the challenges of the last few years to achieve superb results.

Included in the success stories from Year 13 at Llanishen High school are students Thomas Newman and Klaudia Galas.


With 4 A* A-level grades, Thomas Newman, is going to Newham College, Oxford to study Law. “I am so excited that I cannot put it in to words.  It has been such a long journey and I’m delighted.  I’m so grateful for all the support that I have had to get here!”, Thomas said.

Klaudia Galas is a student in the Autism base at Llanishen High School.  She is going to Cardiff and the Vale College do a course in skills progression and then to study wall and plastering. “I’m so excited to be learning new skills.  My love for renovation has come from working on projects at home and now I’m hoping to learn even more skills,” Klaudia said.

While over 70% of students have now been accepted onto their desired university courses, other Llanishen High School students are celebrating their progression into a variety of vocational pathways including; nursing, midwifery and television production.

Head Sarah Parry with students at Llanishen High School

Headteacher Mrs Sarah Parry said: “After months of hard work and determination, we’re delighted to see so many of our students achieve the results they hoped for. We know that success doesn’t look the same for every student, which is why we believe it’s vital to recognise individual achievements and support our young people as they work towards their goals. At Llanishen High School, we do exactly that and we’re proactive in our student support from the moment they step through our doors in Year 7 until they leave at the end of Sixth Form. We believe that today’s results reflect that, and we wish our students the very best of luck in their future.”
