Project Description

At Swansea College, our educational programmes are specifically designed for online/blended learning to ensure that pupils are fully engaged in their learning and that teachers are equipped to bring out the best in every pupil.
Pupils study from home or in-person, joining live taught lessons with expert teachers, in small class sizes. This is within the structure of a complete school programme that also includes the flexibility of self-paced learning, extracurricular activities, and a mentor to help keep pupils on track and thriving.
We look for pupils who will embrace and abide by Swansea College’s values of courage, honour,
humility and fellowship, and who have the potential to achieve a life of learning, leadership, service
and personal fulfilment.
Our dedicated and professional teachers offer students outstanding individual attention thanks to
small class sizes and ample teaching hours, which enable students to build confidence and fulfil their


The GCSE examinations are one of the key times in a pupil’s academic life. These exams not only indicate educational success and achievement thus far, but also pave the path for progression to A-Level and beyond.

Students come to Swansea College  primarily because of our small class sizes and location combined with an outstanding programme of pastoral support, we ensure students receive that extra level of personal attention they require for success.

Two-year course

This is an ideal programme to support GCSE study as teachers can spend time going over topics in greater detail than in the typical classroom situation and can answer individual queries on topics with which students are struggling.

There are compulsory elements within this programme

One-year retake course

The one year retake course is only available for students repeating GCSE or who have had an interrupted education.

If students have had an interrupted education, considerations may be made to allow them to study a one year course instead of two years. Please contact the college with this request and provide as much information as possible in the request.

These students may also be welcome to take part in our live lessons if they choose and if the material being covered will benefit them in their retake.
