Many past and present students have successfully competed in their chosen sport at regional, national and international levels. The wide range of sports includes hockey, cricket, rugby, football, athletics, kick boxing, golf, skiing, tennis and swimming.
Our tailored tuition and highly experienced teachers ensure pupils are given the attention and support required to develop sporting talent alongside academic studies. Parents also tell us that due to the quality of education they receive during the school day, children do not have to make time for private tuition and have more time outside school to pursue their sporting interests.
We are fortunate to have our sports base at the closely located and award winning facilities of Swansea University. Students make use of the athletics track, all weather pitches, olympic swimming pool, and indoor gyms with a wide range of equipment. A gym and fitness centre are on site at Ffynone House.
A close partnership with Swansea Tennis Centre, provides students with expert tennis coaching at the best performing four indoor court venue in the UK, which is used as a ‘Best Practice’ centre of excellence by the Lawn Tennis Association.
The Ffynone House School tennis scholarship programme enables pupils to successfully combine tennis coaching with academic studies. A range of tailored training packages are available according to tennis ability and requirements. See our Tennis Academy page or contact the school for more information.
Ffynone House vs St Michaels – Under 15s. Final Score: 5-1. After an early offensive period by St Michael’s, Ffynone House soon found their feet with their first goal from a corner kick. A powerful throw-in led to the second goal before a spectacular penalty from St Michael’s resulted in an impressive goal. At 2-1 with everything to play for, and some back and forth action in both halves, Ffynone House broke through St Michael’s solid defence to make it 3-1. The first half finished 5-1 and St Michael’s defence proved impenetrable for the second half.
