Hello from Chris Greenhough and Mrs Danielle England...
Hi and welcome to the Swanwick School & Sports College website. Hopefully it 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, mountain biking, swimming, football and dance.
Our curriculum is based upon the needs of our pupils focusing on maximising each child’s academic potential whilst developing their independence skills and life skills.
Pupils make excellent progress at SSSC accessing a wide variety of appropriate qualifications including GCSEs, Entry Level qualifications, Functional Skills and Princes Trust accreditation.
We also access high quality off site provision for our older pupils including Music studies and horticulture. 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 Community Police. In addition we purchase therapeutic support including Speech & Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy.
Our Pastoral Team provides fantastic support to our pupils both within the school and the wider community. It is led by Mrs England, my Co-Headteacher, and includes the SENCo, Family Liaison Worker and Positive Support Lead. This team allows us to 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.
Mr Chris Greenhough
