We strive to create an atmosphere where pupils can both learn and enjoy themselves. At Leehurst Swan children are encouraged to develop their different talents and to grow in confidence in every aspect of school life. We set ourselves high standards and we encourage our children to be equally ambitious.
Academic achievement is important but we also place emphasis on developing well-rounded people who are confident and well-mannered, with concern for others. Each pupil is valued as an individual member of the school community.
Great importance is attached to the provision of a wide curriculum to include art, drama, music, participation in foreign exchanges, activity holidays and theatre trips and sport. We cherish the Christian tradition upon which the school community has built its enviable reputation for learning, mutual respect and honesty.
Come and meet our staff and children - you will be impressed by our pupils and their achievements and can be assured of a warm welcome and a personal tour.
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting you.
