Academic

Academic aspiration is a priority at Llandovery College. Excellent and wholly committed teachers are key to our academic success. Passionate, knowledgeable and sympathetic teachers ensure that the roots for learning take a firm hold and that the right habits and attitudes prevail.

Expectations for attainment are high, fostering enquiring minds that relish the challenge of discovery. Your child will be immersed in an active and stimulating environment and will benefit from a high-quality range of learning opportunities within a caring and supportive ethos.

Inclusion

Every child shines in their own individual way at Llandovery Prep School and each one brings something special to the happy community of which we are so proud.

We have an all-encompassing ethos of inclusion meaning that all pupils, whether they have a specific learning need or are More Able and Talented, will have the opportunity to engage in education in a way that suits their individual needs.

The Inclusion Department promotes whole school responsibility for the effective support of all learners within the College community and regular training enables our staff to provide appropriate challenges and opportunities for success to help pupils recognise and plan for progress.
From the moment your child arrives at our school, we take the initiative to identify and track exceptional talents and abilities, allowing them to flourish and gain confidence from an early age. If your child has a particular talent or shows exceptional potential, this is recognised and encouraged. Your child is unique and we adapt our teaching to what is best for them.

Through our small class sizes, positive relationships and passion for bringing out the best in our pupils, our More Able and Talented programme is tailored to provide the highest level of support, guidance and encouragement to maximise the potential of your child.

We aspire to provide a rich, challenging and rewarding education for the most able. Stimulating pupils through varied and challenging curricular and co-curricular activities encouraging them to try new things and develop existing interests and skills allowing them to achieve their full potential.
We provide excellence through holistic education and believe in bespoke intervention for each and every pupil with additional learning needs. We achieve this by working closely with teachers, pupils and their families to provide an excellent and fluid programme.

Members of the Inclusion Department have specialist training in working with pupils who have specific and additional learning needs. We provide specialist 1:1 sessions, small group intervention and in-class support in specific subject lessons. Additionally, we support pupils in building a repertoire of examination and revision techniques which are specific to their individual learning style.

All members of our small and caring school community are actively informed and encouraged to participate fully in removing barriers to learning and allow every child to achieve their full potential.
