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

Tristram Hobson
