Welcome to St John Lloyd Catholic Comprehensive School
MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
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 school of approximately 500 pupils 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.
The school moved into new buildings in September, 1992 and still benefits from all the advantages of modern classrooms and excellent facilities. Recent additions to school facilities include a two-classroom extension, two new computer suites with internet access, an updated library and projectors and whiteboards in all classrooms. We are proud of our academic results and of the achievement of pupils of all abilities and backgrounds.
We offer a broad and challenging curriculum and a wide range of exciting extra curricular opportunities including, Drama, Computer Maintenance, a thriving Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and a variety of educational visits both within Wales and abroad.
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.
