Beyond Outstanding

In Llandovery College Prep School, our aim is to inspire and empower, to maintain and cultivate an environment in which every child can develop self-confidence, emotional literacy and moral sensitivity.

We believe in an holistic approach to learning, through which our youngest children might develop both self-respect and a considered, thoughtful respect of others.

In our developing curriculum, directed discovery and hands on learning are central, and children are given every opportunity to be active and adventurous in their own learning, in order that they develop a curiosity and appreciation of learning that will equip them for life.

It is our aim that the Prep School experience will endow children with the ability to work independently, and to be motivated by their own success.

Building on a solid foundation of effective policy and deeply held values, we are seeking to develop a department that is forward thinking, and ambitious in equipping young children for an exciting, fast-paced, global future.

PREP SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS

Kind, Decent and Honest

All schools should be special places, where a happy nurturing environment impresses upon our youngest a lifelong dedication to learning and service to our communities.

At Llandovery Prep, affectionately known as ‘The Gollop’, after our Founder Ian Gollop, we endeavour to achieve this through a clear commitment right through to Year 8 to the building blocks of Literacy and Numeracy – the ‘syntax of achievement’ – embedded within a comprehensive, rounded and broad academic curriculum. Small class sizes allow for learning centred on each child’s needs, firmly rooted within a clear and consistently applied ethos that values tolerance, patience, kindness and generosity of spirit.

A sensitive rigour stretches our children in all that they do, and seeks to challenge them to take the risk of going beyond what they know. Our varied and enriching sporting and co-curricular programme deepens experience, promoting teamwork, determination and perseverance.

Our children are encouraged to embrace spirituality and collective worship as an important part of Prep School life, playing a crucial role in developing belonging, self-esteem and a modest confidence.

Choices made in the first steps of a child’s education are critical and opportunities to secure the foundations of intellectual and personal growth can be fleeting. Llandovery Prep School provides children with undoubtedly the best of starts, and as such it is indeed a very special place.
