Mrs Brazier, supported by a superb team of highly qualified staff, welcome you to Tŷ Llandingat, our junior boarding house .This is a listed building set in large, lawned grounds almost opposite the main campus, with a zebra crossing providing safe access to the school grounds within a minute's walk.

Llandingat is a warm and welcoming junior boarding house catering for full-time, weekly and occasional boarders from the prep school until the end of Year 9. Llandingat accommodates both boys and girls, with shared kitchen, communal recreation areas both indoors and in the safe grounds, but with separate boys and girls bath and wash rooms and dormitories on different floors.

At this age, our pupils enjoy the communal environment of large, bright and airy dormitories where they can be close to their friends. Each weekly and full-time boarder has their own dedicated storage space and sleeping area with plenty of room for their personal belongings and posters. Those who board occasionally may find themselves in different beds for different stays depending upon demand, as Llandingat is extremely popular. Children of similar ages are housed together.

We never underestimate the trust that you as parents place in us when your child boards. Our dedicated team at Llandingat provide the highest levels of pastoral care ensuring that all the children are happy, entertained, safe and usefully occupied. Your child will enjoy a packed programme of activities that are designed to be fun, healthy and to stimulate mind and body.
