What the school says...

Old Swinford Hospital is one of the UK's leading state boarding schools. Approximately two-thirds of the pupils are boarders who benefit from the combination of opportunity, structure and care which a boarding education offers. Pupils are expected to work hard, to acquire good study habits and to develop other useful skills that will help them in their future careers. High standards of personal presentation and behaviour are set and pupils are expected to demonstrate consideration for the needs of others within the School, in the local community and far beyond. They are encouraged to be creative and to consider the deeper questions, matching their academic attainment and physical fitness with emotional maturity. ...Read more
