Welcome from the Headteacher:- Mr C Greenhough
My name is Chris Greenhough and I have had the privilege of being the Headteacher at Swanwick School & Sports College since September 2011.
Hopefully our website will give you some idea of the opportunities we are able to offer our young people. This ranges from our enthusiastic staff team delivering high quality teaching to exciting extracurricular activities such as skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking.
Our curriculum is based upon our pupils’ needs but focuses on maximising each child’s academic potential whilst developing their independence skills and life skills.
Pupils make excellent progress at SSSC with pupils accessing a wide variety of appropriate qualifications including GCSEs, Entry Level qualifications, Functional Skills and Princes Trust accreditation.
We also access high quality offsite provision for our older pupils including Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Construction. Other vocational key stage 4 courses include Electronics, Small Animal Care, Floristry, I Can Club (Independence Skills), Cooking, Art and Drama.
We work successfully with other agencies including the Learning Disability Child and Adolescent Mental Heath team (LD CAMHs), Social Care and Multi Agency Workers (MAT). We also purchase additional therapeutic support including Speech & Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy.
Our Pastoral Team (Head of school, SENCo, Family Liaison Worker and Positive Support Lead) ensure that we meet the social and emotional needs of our young people and also support families wherever possible.
I am proud of the work we do at the school and if you think our school would be a suitable option for your child then please contact the school on 01773 602198 to arrange a visit or gather further information.
