Welcome to Swanage Middle School. We are a 9-13 school set in spacious grounds in beautiful Purbeck countryside on the western outskirts of the Dorset town of Swanage and close to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
- To develop a caring school community where pupils learn to respect others in a sensitive, reasonable and tolerant way, and in which collaboration, responsibility, self-discipline, initiative, hard work and pursuit of excellence is actively encouraged.
- To develop, within the National prescription, a curriculum which is flexible, relevant and meaningful to all pupils at different ages and stages and which is responsive to their individual needs and interests as well as the external demands of society at large.
- To develop those attitudes and skills of learning which equip pupils to become willing, independent, life-long learners; and to encourage by high expectation the development of their academic, intellectual, physical, creative, aesthetic, spiritual and social potential.
- To continue the successful development of close-working links with parents and the local community through shared planning, meetings and activities.
Swanage Middle is the community school for this town and surrounding villages.
Its achievements were well documented in the OFSTED report of February 2005.
