The Swansea and Neath Port Talbot areas boast a brilliant selection of schools from nursery right through to higher education.

Those who are not Welsh speakers should be aware that Welsh medium schools teach only in Welsh. In English medium schools, Welsh language lessons will be on the curriculum, but all teaching will be done in English.
