WELCOME TO THE SWAN SCHOOL
Our vision is to work with the local community and exceptional establishments in Oxford and around the world to build a truly outstanding school where every single child can achieve his or her potential. We believe that students should leave The Swan School having achieved more than they ever believed possible, and with the qualifications, skills, and confidence to achieve even more in the future. We also believe they should leave with happy memories, plenty of friends and a sense of responsibility for their community. We plan to send every student out into the world with an understanding of the way it works and the empathy and drive to make it better, in whatever way they can.

In line with government guidance, The Swan School is open for all students. We are delighted to have our young people back in school. Lateral flow tests need to be carried out by students at home in a bid to identify asymptomatic carriers.

The Swan School is holding a grand opening event on Saturday 11th September 2021. The event will take place from 2pm to 4pm. All are welcome. The day will feature family fun, stalls and activities, and the guest of honour will be Oxford University Professor of Vaccinology Dame Sarah Gilbert.
To achieve our ambitious vision, we focus on four key values that are at the heart of everything we do. They are:
