At Swanbourne House, we get many enquiries from families who are looking to move out of the city and are searching for a new school in this area.

At Swanbourne, we have significant experience of helping take some of the stress out of a relocation by having a passionate and experience teaching and admissions team ready to help you change schools to, or start school in, a new area. Our emphasis on a high standard of pastoral care at the school helps us take children through this significant change with confidence, understanding and assurance.
