In September 2006, Llanishen High School was asked to join the Cardiff Network of Healthy Schools. Prior to this, LLanishen High School had been ` mirroring the scheme without accreditation. The Cardiff Network of Healthy Schools is a local award scheme run by Cardiff Advisory service for Education, supported by key partners.

The scheme has been accredited by the Welsh Network of Healthy Schools Schemes and receives funding from the Welsh Assembly Government as part of the strategic framework identified in `Better Health, Better Wales. Schools are a key setting for promoting health messages with young people.

Schools set three actions (targets) per year that will improve the Health of the school. Accreditation is achieved by production of an evidence portfolio and visit by Healthy Schools officer.
