Learning outside the classroom

The Hwb is a Welsh Government learning platform. It hosts a National collection of digital resources to support learning and teaching for learners aged 3 to 19 in Wales.


The new home of both Study Guides and Class Clips

  • Brand new study guides for GCSEs and Key Stage 3
  • New audio and video clips, infographics and tests
  • Now available on your tablet and phone so you can learn on the move

The new Bitesize site brings together in one place the BBC’s education content – not only the familiar Bitesize learner guides covering all the main secondary subjects, but also new primary guides and thousands of curriculum-mapped video clips for both secondary and primary classrooms. We also have new content to help pupils with their exams.

Explore the brand new Bitesize

Teachers and learners in maintained schools in Wales are able to download and install the latest Microsoft Office tools including Word, Excel and PowerPoint as well as Minecraft: Education Edition at no cost on up to 15 devices – through Hwb.
