Confucius Institute Chinese School Swansea Logo

The Confucius Institute at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David has created a unique school in Wales where children from Chinese and Welsh backgrounds meet every Sunday during term time to learn Chinese and experience Chinese culture. We welcome pupils of all backgrounds. 

Our staff are trained to deliver British GCSE and A Level qualifications in Mandarin, as well as Chinese proficiency tests (Youth Chinese Test and HSK).  Our teaching staff fully understand the learning needs of students in the UK and provide the highest standard of teaching.

The school offers a carefully structured curriculum in the core skills of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing Chinese to support pupils from beginner level through to advanced. Classes aim to support pupils’ ability and encourage steady learning. 

From September 2021, the youngest pupils in Classes 1 and 2 will have in-person teaching, unless Covid restrictions return. All other classes will continue with online learning.
