An Outstanding Education in the Heart of the City

Ffynone House School is an independent co-educational secondary school in Swansea, Wales. It is situated in the Uplands area of the city at 36 St. James Crescent.

We offer Chemistry, Biology and Physics as independent subjects throughout the School. Pupils from the School regularly participate in science-based competitions and have enjoyed success in the South West Wales Chemical Olympiad Competition. In 2009 the School Chemical Olympiad team came third in the UK in the Royal Society of Chemistry 'Top of the Bench' competition. They continued this success with further wins, coming 7th in 2012 in the Top of The Bench Competition, in 2019 the school chemical Olympiad team advanced to the national finals and secured a top place in the country. More recently they came runners up in wales in the competition, however they could not secure a place in the national finals due to apparent cheating by the opposition team from Christ college.

All qualifications, with the exception of ICT, are the more demanding English specifications and are graded using the 9-1 system. Over half of all grades were at level 7 or above (equivalent to the old A/A*) with an impressive 19% at the ultra-high level 9.

Headteacher, Michael Boulding, said, “I am thrilled to see so many of our students achieving at the very highest levels in so many subjects. I am also extremely proud that 84% of students met or exceeded their targets this year, over a third of them by at least two grades! This shows that above all else, we give our students the confidence and expertise to achieve their very best in these challenging qualifications.”

100% of students studying Latin or Classical Civilisation attained a level 9. In Mathematics, 83% of entries were graded level 7 or above (equivalent to the old grade A) with 50% at level 9-8 (A*). An amazing 58% of Chemistry grades were at level 9 and over 75% of Biology and Chemistry grades were levels 9-7. 83% of all History entrants scored level 7 or above.
