A range of scholarships are available for those choosing Llandovery College for their 6th Form We are committed to nurturing the best talent and to widening access to our unique Welsh school. You can consider applying for a 6th Form scholarship if you are predicted straights A* / A's in your GCSE results.
We look for scholars who have all-round potential or proven ability, particularly those who are very able academically, in music, art, drama or sports - with specific rugby scholarships available thanks to generous benefactors.
Scholarships may be awarded for more than one area of ability or potential: a pupil may, for example, receive both a sporting and an academic scholarship. Scholarships and exhibitions are NOT means tested. Exams, aptitude tests, auditions and interviews form the basis of assessment.
Competition for scholarship places is often fierce and we are looking for those who will prove great ambassadors for Llandovery College in all areas of life. Scholars are expected to contribute far beyond the norm - academically, in sports and/or to our rich musical and dramatic life. 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 exceptionally talented in probably two or more areas: for example academically, in drama, sports 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.
Llandovery College scholars are expected to contribute fully to the life of the school. Scholarships and exhibitions (smaller financial awards) are contractual agreements that must be kept confidential. The benefits may be withdrawn if the pupil fails to maintain their enthusiasm for and commitment to scholarship or exhibition activities.
