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

We hope that our students are well into our Summer Reading Challenge. There’s a Book Bingo card to print out, too! If you have a look at the Reading channel in our Whole School Team you’ll find recommendations of both fiction and non-fiction reads for all ages from teachers and students. Swansea Library is open again now and is a wonderful place to explore new authors without the pressure of buying – why not ask one of the brilliant librarians for some ideas about what to choose next? If you have Swansea library membership you can use the Borrowbox App to borrow digital books for free! If you fancy trying some classics – a bit of HG Wells? Austen? Why not try an audio version before tackling the text itself or to read along with?Read, read and read some more (and then put your reviews on the Teams channel) 📚 📖 🐉 🧙 💕 ⚔️ 🌳 🌎 🐬 🏠 🛶… See MoreSee Less

Ffynone House School
We know many of you are looking forward to seeing some video material from our Proms in the Playground event – it will be coming soon, we promise! In the meantime… here are a few still shots of what was an absolutely incredible and joyous afternoon.There were year group bands, ensembles, musical theatre pieces, sibling trios, duets, spoken word and even a staff jazz number! We were absolutely blessed with the weather as the whole school sat together in the yard to witness the very welcome return of live performance. It was a huge undertaking for staff and students with limited rehearsal time and the challenge of adapting to outdoor performance. Mrs Ramos and Mrs Walsh worked tirelessly as always to inspire the very best from the students. Special thanks also to Mrs MacLoed for the LAMDA work and to some of our peri music teachers for their contributions.It was an absolutely glorious and euphoric end to an extremely challenging year. Congratulations to everyone involved. See MoreSee Less
