“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

HMFA Rounders Tournament

HMFA Rounders Tournament

Year 5 spent all day yesterday playing rounders, representing the school at Sutton Academy as part of the ongoing HMFA Sports League. The team worked very hard and overcame their nerves in the morning to score lots of rounders. The matches were incredibly close and the results were often determined by half a rounder! All the children were congratulated on their politeness throughout the tournament. Well done Year 5 – you did us proud!

Llangrove are doing superbly well in the HMFA League. After the football, netball, Tag rugby and rounders events this academic year, we are fourth in the HMFA League table.
