Swanbourne House pupils leave at the end of Year 8 to attend a variety of leading independent senior schools, and are consistently successful in securing their first choice.

We are proud to have strong relationships and close links with a wide range of senior schools and, whilst tied to none, Swanbourne is a well-established feeder school for many. Heads and Registrars are always impressed with Swanbourne pupils and are only too aware of the strong academic background and co-curricular opportunities afforded to our children. The Acting Head/Director of Teaching & Learning Mrs Simone Mitchell, knows each child’s passions and talents and work very closely with our families throughout their time at Swanbourne to impart their expert knowledge and understanding in making the right choice of senior school for every child. A good number of our pupils secure scholarships to their chosen senior schools.
