Headteacher’s welcome

Headteacher Welcome

We are a popular, caring and happy school for girls and boys aged 9-13 years. Here at Swanmead we pride ourselves on the quality of our work and the care that we extend to all our pupils.

We provide our young people with challenging and stimulating learning opportunities that enables each of them to grow in confidence and develop attitudes and skills towards the challenges they face in today’s world. You can tell a great school as soon as you walk through the door and I encourage you to visit us to feel the sense of warmth, commitment and excellence we provide to our children.

We pride ourselves on promoting traditional values such as honesty, respect and politeness, as well as enjoying the latest technology, teaching methods and resources. However, above all, we want our children to be happy, have confidence and possess a real zest for life. I welcome you all to our School Community and look forward to working with you in the best interests of your children and the futures they have ahead of them.
