Sport

Llandovery College has a formidable reputation for sport. This reputation extends well beyond producing international sportsmen and women in a staggering array of disciplines and now embraces a fully inclusive activity programme that promotes fitness, health, participation, enjoyment and a life-long love of sport. Pupils regularly represent the College in over a dozen sports and it is unusual for a pupil not to pull on a College jersey at some stage of their school life.

Being a Welsh School, rugby is important to us at Llandovery College. We are fortunate to have expert coaching, 45 acres of playing fields and the legendary Tredegar Close our 1st XV rugby pitch that has produced over 50 full internationals.

With close links to the regions and the national team management, elite and conditioning coaching and transport to regional training, we consistently produce outstanding players such as Alun Wyn Jones, Carwyn James, George North, Craig Quinnell, Rachel Poolman, Andy Powell and Carys Phillips.
 
 
My time at Llandovery was fantastic. It set me on the right path for life.

I love that the fact that I can take part in so many kinds of activities, such as shooting, football, cricket and the Duke of Edinburgh! The teachers are always around outside the classroom too, and I can go to them about anything.

 
Dedicated staff coach to an exceptional standard; the sporting year has a packed fixture list across many sports, with each pupil’s talent being nurtured to its full potential. The Sports Department recognises the needs and desires to work towards an inclusive ‘Sport for All’ approach that enables as many boys and girls as possible to participate in a wide variety of co-curricular sporting activities.

At Llandovery College, the Sports Department endeavours to balance the pursuit of excellence with giving opportunities for all, including the opportunity for pupils to represent their House / School in both intra and inter school fixtures. The school fixture lists are vast and extensive with matches being played on both Wednesday and Saturday afternoons where we encourage families and friends to come along and support our teams.
