The Swan School and The Cherwell School will have strong links, because they are geographically close and are both part of the River Learning Trust. This means that there may be some shared teaching and use of facilities, particularly at sixth-form level. The schools will also work together on teaching, curriculum and assessment to learn from each other and ensure that students receive the best experience possible.

However, it is important to note that The Swan School will very much have its own identity, values and ethos. Students and staff will be proud to attend or work at the school.
