Dear Parents,


St. John Lloyd Catholic Comprehensive School is a mixed 11 – 16 school serving the communities of Llanelli, Carmarthen, Ammanford and surrounding areas. The Governors welcome applications not only from Catholic families but also from all families who wish to share in the Christian atmosphere of the school.

We are a small but expanding school with approximately 520 pupils on roll and we seek to foster a family spirit in which pupils, staff and parents can benefit from belonging to a supportive Christian community within a safe disciplined and caring learning environment.

We aim for excellence in all that we do, inspired by the Gospel values of love, truth, forgiveness and service. Our numbers enable us to know and care for our pupils as individuals. We aim to develop the full potential of each child through the provision of a high quality educational experience. As well as being a faith school, we are extremely proud of the contribution we make to supporting and nurturing our Welsh heritage and culture. Pupils regularly take part in a wide range of Urdd competitions including sport and cooking and our annual school Eisteddfod is supported by all pupils. Our pupils and staff also have an excellent record of supporting local, national and international charitable causes through our many annual fundraising events.

We are proud of our excellent academic results and of the achievement of pupils of all abilities and backgrounds. Our GCSE results are consistently among the best when compared to similar schools locally and nationally.

The school moved into new buildings in September 1992 and still benefits from all the advantages of modern classrooms and excellent facilities. Recent additions include the provision of wireless high speed internet, wireless laptops and tablet computers, two updated computer suites and whiteboards with projectors in all classrooms.

We offer a broad and challenging curriculum and a wide range of exciting extra-curricular opportunities including sports, a thriving Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and a variety of educational visits both within Wales, the UK and abroad. The school also offers a supervised ‘Breakfast Club’ from 8.00am every day as well as our ‘Ownzone’ after-school provision.

To truly appreciate what the school has to offer, I would like to invite you to visit during the school day when I can assure you of a warm welcome.

Acting Headteacher
