PLACES FOR SEPT 2021 – A LOOK INSIDE THE SWAN SCHOOL
Choosing a secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions in their educational career. This decision is made harder by not being able to visit schools in the way you would have done in previous years. As you can’t come to us, we have tried our best to get our school to come to you. The Swan School video prospectus and other videos we have produced allow you to meet members of our community – staff, students, and parents – and, we hope, give you a flavour of everything our school has to offer.
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.
KAY WOOD, HEADTEACHER
To achieve our ambitious vision, we focus on four key values that are at the heart of everything we do. They are:
WHAT MAKES THE SWAN SCHOOL DIFFERENT?
Some aspects of life at The Swan are different to other secondary schools. These include:
- A LONGER SCHOOL DAY INCLUDING INDEPENDENT STUDY AND ELECTIVES
- FAMILY DINING
- A KNOWLEDGE-RICH CURRICULUM
- THE HIGHEST EXPECTATIONS OF BEHAVIOUR AND ATTITUDES TO LEARNING
Admissions for Sept 2021 entry must be in by 31st Oct. Access is restricted, but details of a virtual open event and distanced meet-and-greets are on the Visit Our School page, under Joining The School in the menu.
