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.

THE SWAN SCHOOL REOPENING - TUESDAY 9TH MARCH 2021
In line with government guidance, The Swan School will be reopening for all students from Tuesday 9th March. We are excited about welcoming our student back.
All students will be offered lateral flow tests on Friday 5th and Monday 8th March to identify asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 before they return to school. A final ‘in-school’ test will be carried out on Friday 12th March before home testing begins.
Student Matriculation will take place on Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th March, with the normal timetable resuming on Thursday 11th March.
To achieve our ambitious vision, we focus on four key values that are at the heart of everything we do. They are:
