Ffynone House School is a non-selective independent day secondary school for boys and girls aged 11-18 in the heart of Swansea. The best way to experience Ffynone House is to arrange a visit and taster day. Students are welcome to join in any year, and many consider Years 7, 10, and Sixth Form as the most ideal times to make the change. To book your personal tour or taster day, or order a copy of our prospectus, telephone 01792 464967, or use our Contact Form
