Our historic Singleton Park Campus is set in lush parkland within Singleton Park; one of Swansea's key green spaces which provides the community with acres of lush green parkland to enjoy.

The well-established grounds provide a wide variety of habitats, with grassland, mature woodland, planted areas and ponds, helping to support an extensive variety of wildlife. 

The new Bay Campus is right on the beach and adjacent to Crymlyn Burrows Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), offering beachside habitats for you to explore at your leisure.
