Welcome to The Swanage School!

We are delighted you are considering applying to The Swanage School - our school has so much to offer and we look forward to sharing it with you and answering your questions. There are many ways to find the information you will need in deciding whether our school will be a good fit for you and your family. 

Our prospectus

A digital copy is below and printed copies are distributed via local primary schools or on request. The prospectus will tell you about our vision & ethos, our teaching & learning, our community involvement and the many opportunities for students.

Our website

The "frequently asked questions (FAQs)" page is a great starting point and may answer many of the questions you have, and from here you will be directed to other pages you may find helpful. 

Open Evening and Tours

No amount of written information will compare to coming to visit us! Each year we have an open evening at the end of September for those in Year 5 and 6 at primary school, and we will also be delighted to give prospective pupils and parents a personal tour during the school day.
