A limited number of rugby scholarships are available for Sixth Form entry to Llandovery College, though those with ability and promise in lower years are encouraged to apply for sports scholarships - please click here.
Rugby scholarships are designed to enable those with real potential to benefit from the very best coaching including elite fitness and conditioning with our superb facilities and close links to the WRU regional and national structure. Many of our sixth form rugby players play at regional level or above and we aspire to be a centre of excellence. Rugby scholars will play in a full and exciting season of fixtures against the very best in the UK. To see the calibre of previous and current rugby scholars, please click here.
Competition for places is often fierce and we are looking for those who will not only prove great ambassadors for Llandovery College on the playing fields of Wales, but will contribute much more - academically, in other sports and to our rich musical and dramatic life. We have a strict entry criterion of 6 GCSEs or equivalent at Grade C or above. Those with a variety of skills and talents are encouraged to apply.
Scholarships are worth varying amounts from 5% up to 50% concession in fees, whether as a boarder or day pupil. Please note - a 50% concession on annual fees is the absolute maximum scholarship available and this level is exceptional rather than the norm. For this amount, candidates would need to be at international level in their sport and extremely talented in other areas, for example academically or musically. Unfortunately we cannot offer free places. In exceptional circumstances, means-tested bursaries may also be available but these are sometimes easier to obtain once the candidate is in the school.
