A NEW OXFORD SECONDARY: UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND OPENING IN SEPTEMBER
GOVERNMENT GIVES GREEN LIGHT FOR THE SWAN SCHOOL TO OPEN
We are delighted to confirm that The Swan School will definitely open this September, after the Government formally agreed to fund it. As you will see from the picture, Paul James, the chief executive of River Learning Trust, travelled to London to sign the documents that allow us to officially say that the school will open.
This is a vote of confidence from the Department for Education in our ability to deliver a truly exceptional new secondary school in Oxford. Thank you all for your faith and patience during this process.
WELCOME TO THE SWAN SCHOOL
The Swan School will provide an excellent education for local children from its new buildings at the Marston end of the Marston Ferry Road. Taking the most successful approaches from the best schools as our starting point, we will ensure that students enjoy and benefit from education of the highest quality. Students will be inspired and nurtured and will acquire the knowledge and skills to think critically and creatively. They will learn to be confident, resilient and ambitious, and will have high expectations in terms of their own achievements and their contribution to wider society. The school will open to Year 7 pupils in September 2019. Please click here to see our timeline. While the school is being built, students will be taught in high-quality pre-fabricated units on land next to the South Site of The Cherwell School
