Scholarships and Achievements

The School is rightly proud of all the many and diverse achievements gained by pupils at Swanbourne House. Our School Performance publication each year summarises the achievements of pupils in academics, music, sport, drama and other areas.

In the 11s and Top Year an academic scholarship set prepares pupils for academic scholarship exams at 13+. Mentoring and extension programmes are run in Art, DT, Sport, Music and Drama to assist pupils preparing to take scholarship assessments in those areas. All pupils entered for scholarships are given interview practice and guidance specific to the scholarships they are taking.
