School Bus Update

805 Bus Route Splott/Tremorfa

In order to travel on the 805 school bus,  pupils MUST have a bus pass or pay for a return ticket.

If they do not the bus company will refuse travel and pupils will have to make their own way home.

The school is not responsible for school transport the council is. The council outsources this and the services are operated commercially by the bus company.

The school just hands out the bus passes at the beginning of the year.

If you need a pass or wish to enquire as to whether your child/children are eligible for free school transport go to the council website or call 029 2087 2808​.

If you have any concerns about the service contact the Contractor: New Adventure Travel on, 02920 442 040.

Centenary Celebrations

St Illtyds Catholic High School marks its centenary this year and began doing so with a Mass at St Albans Catholic Church in Splott, Cardiff. St Albans was the local church closest to the schools original site and all were made welcome by Father Sebastian and the Oratory.

Archbishop Mark O`Toole was the main celebrant but he was also joined by fellow priests, many of whom were themselves Old Illtydians. It was a wonderful opportunity for all past pupils and staff to share their own memories of the school and suffice to say a lot has changed.

We were delighted that Brother Michael and brother Ben could join us. Brother Ben spoke of his own time and memories of St Illtyd`s and this was a theme carried on the next day at the school itself where Mass was celebrated by Archbishop George Stack and Father Brian Grey, Chair of governors and father Sebastian. We were also joined by Headteacher Mrs Hart and pupils from St John Lloyd.The mass took place in the Chapel which was a part of the Brothers lodgings when they were ever present in the school. 

It was great to have brother Michael and brother Ben with us. They helped to reinforce our rich history and association with lasallian education and we hope it is the first visit of many as the centenary celebrations continue.


GCSE Results Day 2023

We were pleased to celebrate an excellent set of GCSE results this year. We have improved in all performance indicators on last year’s results –  which themselves were good and there have been some outstanding individual results including pupils’ achieving 11 A*`s.

It is a testament to the hard work of the pupils, parents and staff that these young people have achieved so much despite the pandemic and its impact on their school life.
