What the school says...

The vision for The Swanage School is a simple one: to be an inclusive, student-centred, academically rigorous school where relationships are at the heart of the school and the school is at the heart of the community; a school in which every child is known and valued and where learning is fun; a school that prepares its students for the wider world, and that alumni will be proud of.

We are in the truly enviable position of being able to create a brand new school, with inspirational teachers who share our vision and values and to do this in a purpose-built, multi-million-pound building complete with extensive facilities where children, teachers, parents and members of the local community work and learn together.

This is indeed a dream opportunity for every student, parent, teacher and headteacher. I invite you to join us in making the vision for The Swanage School a reality.

With warm wishes

What the parents say...

Swanage School has been brilliant for my stepson who has special needs, including Aspergers. The small classes, inspirational teachers and personal attention have been just right. The whole atmosphere is positive and more than makes up for the more limited options available in a small school. 100% recommended!

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
