Welcome to the Parents' Zone

This section of the website has been developed to provide parents and guardians with relevant, up-to-date information relating to college life.


Welcome to our new Parents’ Zone which has been designed to introduce you and your family to this exciting new chapter in your child’s education and to help you in supporting them in achieving excellent results and outcomes whilst at the College. Our experience tells us that a strong three-way partnership between the student, the College and the student’s parents or guardians helps in achieving the very best outcomes and therefore we are keen to involve you in this educational journey as much as possible.

At Gower College Swansea we are expert in supporting young people as they move through this phase of education into the working world or onto higher education, with our success based on providing first class experiences for your son or daughter and which includes excellent teaching, good facilities and great care and support.  The range of College programmes available allow young people to improve their qualifications and progress to good jobs or to higher education and also to meet new people and do new things.  There is serious hard work to be done but also fun and friendship to be enjoyed.

We hope that you find this new Parents’ Zone stimulating and useful – and if you have any questions or comments as to how we can further improve it, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Kind Regards
Mark Jones

A parent’s perspective: Bridget Radford (son Noa is currently studying Performing Arts at the Gorseinon campus) – pictured above.

“We attended an open evening at Gower College Swansea and were really impressed with the facilities and the range of courses on offer – we just felt that the environment would suit Noa perfectly. The experience was very positive and we were all impressed with what we saw.

We had looked at both sixth form and college options for Noa (he attended a Welsh medium school previously) but he decided very early on that college was the route he wanted to take.

Gower College Swansea is a very friendly and open environment and Noa is really happy. He has settled in well, has made some great friends and absolutely loves his course.

On the occasions we’ve met Noa’s tutors they have been great – very supportive, always putting Noa first. He has received excellent tuition. If he ever had a problem, I feel confident he would have a fantastic support system in place at college.

As parents, we receive emails and letters from the college and everything is always relevant. We also follow Gower College Swansea on Facebook and Twitter so it’s easy to keep up to date with news and developments.

We’ve had a wonderful experience to date and are very glad Noa chose Gower College Swansea – he has grown in confidence and is improving all the time. We are really looking forward to him continuing his studies next year.

A big thank you to everyone involved.”
