Gower College Swansea is delighted to launch OpenClass, a bespoke learning platform for the city’s Year 11 school pupils.
In response to the ongoing and ever-evolving situation with Covid-19, the College has been keen to develop a bespoke platform to help keep applicants on track with their learning.
Updated statement on police presence at Tycoch Campus (14 April)
On the evening of 13 April, the College was made aware of a number of threats made on social media which were directed towards our Tycoch campus.
The College immediately contacted South Wales Police and we have been working closely with their officers since to ensure the ongoing health and safety of everyone at the campus.
Update from Principal, Mark Jones (25 March)
We are delighted to report that, from Monday 12 April, all students will be invited to return to College for face-to-face learning in very much the same way that we were able to operate in the first term (from September to early December).
St. David's Day
This year, with the majority of our learning community and staff working from home, we decided to celebrate St. David’s Day a little differently.
We launched the day with a What is Wales/Welshness to me? competition, inviting a variety of statements, photos, videos and pieces of work that represented Wales to some of our staff and students.
