What is e-sgol?

e-sgol is a project funded by Welsh Government to assist schools’ sixth form provision primarily in rural areas and their Welsh medium provision. The core principle of e-sgol is to ensure that learners, regardless of location, receive the opportunities to study subjects that may not be available for them to study in their own schools.

The lessons are delivered using a blended learning approach and is driven by Hwb. Microsoft Teams is used to facilitate the lessons as a Virtual Learning Environment, and Microsoft OneNote is used to create notes and annotate presentations. All staff, teachers, IT Technicians, and learners are given training prior to the commencement of lessons and at numerous points during the year. 

As pupils move from GCSE to A Level, parents can have many questions about what is best for their children. Where do e-sgol lessons fit in? Find out by watching the following video:

Where you have questions, please look at our FAQs or get in touch with us at Here are some things for you to consider:

  1. Parents’ evenings and reports will be undertaken in line with the host school calendar. For parents’ evenings you will be able to do this via video.
  2. You can receive reports of the weekly activities being considered on Teams.
  3. Your child will receive a laptop (and pen) that they can use in lessons, but also at home.
  4. Through the use of OneNote your child will not only have access to their own notes, but also those of the teacher.
