ABOUT OUR SIXTH FORM
We are delighted to have opened a new Sixth Form in September 2021. We are looking to welcome committed and adventurous Year 12s to join The Swan journey, as we grow into a full school of more than 1,000 students. Sixth Form students joining our community in year 12 or 13, provide leadership to our younger ‘cygnets’, whilst gaining fantastic skills and qualifications for themselves. You can register your interest as a parent/carer or student and receive regular updates by filling in the form at the bottom of this page. We would be delighted for you to visit us to find out more about what we have to offer.
Our initial offer is rigorously academic, focusing on the subjects where our teachers have a proven track record of delivering excellent outcomes. Whilst being academic, our curriculum is broad and our students are able to choose from a wide range of subjects. As a member of The Swan School Sixth Form you will have the opportunity to study in a state-of-the-art building with outstanding facilities. Our small size means that every student is heard and personally known.
All Year 12 students complete our Swan Leadership Programme (SLP), which equips you with the confidence and leadership skills vital for further study and careers. Being one of the first year groups at a new Sixth Form gives you the chance to be part of setting the culture. If you’re the kind of person who wants academic challenge, leadership opportunities, and personalised support to reach your goals (both academic and personal) then The Swan School’s Sixth Form is the place for you.
