Private Appointments

During a private visit families will experience the wide ranging opportunities on offer at Swanbourne as they tour around the school, meeting pupils and staff. The visit includes a one-to-one meeting with the Head, Mrs Thorpe, and our Director of Admissions will take you through the admissions process and answer any enrolment questions.

Open Mornings

We have regular Open Mornings on a Friday or Saturday, and invite families to join us for refreshments before a presentation from our Head. Prospective families tour the school with existing pupils who are encouraged to talk freely about life at Swanbourne and answer questions. Parents can see subject demonstrations, lessons or Enrichment activities (Saturdays) and there are often drama performances and musical recitals to enjoy.  Our Open Days are very popular and we recommend you book well in advance.

“The Head is clearly an outstanding leader with an inspiring vision for the School and the development of its pupils. The children are given the broadest opportunities across Academics, The Arts, Sports and Outdoor Learning. Whilst standards are very high here, there is a huge sense of fun and spirit that makes for very happy learners. My children feel valued and full of confidence.”

3s Stay and Play Sessions

We hold ‘Stay and Play’ sessions throughout the year for parents who are considering enrolling their child into the 3s. These are very valuable sessions and offer parents and young children the chance to familiarise themselves with the setting and meet future friends and teachers. Your child will join others in the 3s, with a range of activities and experiences on offer and we encourage friends and grandparents to attend and get a feel for life at Swanbourne. The Head of Lower School, Mrs Nicoll is on hand to chat and answer any questions. Parents are also invited to tour the Main House and boarding facilities.
