Headmaster’s Welcome

Welcome to Swanbourne House, a thriving independent, co-educational Prep School, with boarding, day and nursery departments. The school is located on a glorious site of 55 acres in Buckinghamshire with outstanding facilities. We provide a continuous education for children aged from three to thirteen.

We believe that happiness and growing self-confidence within the Swanbourne family are the keys to a child's success. Our strengths, as highlighted by the highest grades in our last ISI inspection report , include excellent academic achievements, pastoral care, creativity in art and design technology, sport and extra-curricular provision. We are proud that pupils at Swanbourne House are busy and purposeful. Our committed and talented teachers help them to develop into confident and interested learners, while at the same time bringing out the very best in them in terms of thoughtful, responsible, well-rounded individuals.

We pride ourselves on preparing pupils for scholarships and entry to the top public schools and guide parents to help them find the school which will best suit their child. Yet, with all their skills and learning, Swanbourne pupils do not grow up too soon and they enjoy the fun and spirit of a fantastically rich and varied school life.

Come and visit us; you can be sure of a warm welcome.
