School to reopen
SWANSEA's Ffynone House School will officially reopen as a charitable trust next Friday.
The continuation of the school had been in doubt earlier this year after parent company Cognita told staff and pupils it was considering closing the school for good because it was not financially viable.
A small number of pupils left the school immediately after the announcement.
Ffynone House has now transferred from the hands of Cognita, which acquired the school in 2007, to the charitable trust which previously owned the school in a deal which did not involve any cash from parents.

One of the trustees, Jayne Morgan, who works at the College of Medicine in Swansea University, played a key role in initiating the move for the school back from private ownership to a trust.
She said: "We are delighted that we have been able to return the school to its foundations as a charitable trust and we can all look forward to a secure and long-term future for the children and staff at Ffynone."
