St Teilo's Church in Wales High School (Welsh: Ysgol Uwchradd Teilo Sant yr Eglwys yng Nghymru) was opened in September 1966 as an 11-16 school and provides a church school comprehensive education for secondary students living mainly in the eastern half of Cardiff. It is now one of three Voluntary Aided Secondary Schools in the Diocese of Llandaff and serves a much wider geographical and spiritual 'catchment' area; many students come from the Diocese of Monmouth and as far away as Caerphilly. As a Voluntary Aided school, the Local Education Authority maintains it, but the Church through its Governing Body, has considerable spiritual, financial, administrative, and educational duties towards it. The teaching staff are appointed by the Governing Body and have a responsibility to ensure that the curriculum and general life of the school is maintained through a sound Christian foundation.
The school moved to a new building located on the former playing fields of Llanedeyrn High School in September 2013. When the final students of Llanedeyrn High School leave at the end of the 2013-2014 school term, the school will be diminished and St Teilo's Church in Wales High School will have all the land.
The school is still in construction stage with the main buildings complete. The school is still without a field. However, a field towards a local Welsh school is used as a temporary set for sports and physical education.
In September 2013, St Teilo's High School officially moved to the playing fields of Llanederyn High School. As part of the new building, a biometric payment system was introduced. Students can now pay for lunch using their fingerprint and load money onto their account via ParentPay, as well as being able to print using their biometrics through PCounter Secure Printing.
