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. We are excited to have Sixth Form students join our community, providing 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.
Our initial offer will be rigorously academic, focusing on the subjects where our teachers have a proven track record of delivering excellent outcomes. We will also be collaborating with The Cherwell School to ensure that our curriculum is broad and our students are able to choose from a wide range of subjects. As a pioneering 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 will be heard and personally known.
All Year 12 students will complete our Swan Leadership Programme (SLP), which will equip you with the confidence and leadership skills vital for further study and careers. Being the first year group 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 an adventure, then this is an amazing opportunity.
