Llanedeyrn High School
|Motto||Achievement, Equality, Excellence|
Llanedeyrn High School (Welsh: Ysgol Uwchradd Llanedern) was a comprehensive school located in the Llanedeyrn area of Cardiff, Wales. It opened in 1970 as the first purpose-built comprehensive school in Wales.
Because of falling pupil numbers, in 2008 a decision was made to close Llanedeyrn and two other Cardiff comprehensive schools. From September 2011 Llanedeyrn High School did not take in any new pupils at Year 7 and the school finally closed in the summer of 2014. Remaining pupils were transferred to Llanishen High School or Cardiff High School, or could apply to attend St Teilo's Church in Wales High School. St Teilo's took over the school's old site at Roundwood Gardens, Llanedeyrn, after moving from its former location in Penylan. New state-of-the-art buildings were constructed on the former playing fields.
