Welcome to the Old Swinford Hospital Website. Whether you are an existing or prospective student or parent, an Old Foleyan or one of our many community partners, I hope that you will find here the information that you need on these pages.
Old Swinford Hospital is, to quote OFSTED, “a very good, unique school” and this site is also designed to give you a flavour of what makes us that way. If you are unfamiliar with the School and would like to know more, do visit us on one of our Open Days or contact the Registrar who will be pleased to provide more information.
|About Old Swinford Hospital|
Old Swinford Hospital is a unique and highly successful school. Founded in 1667 by Thomas Foley, a Worcestershire iron master, it is now recognised as one of the country’s leading state schools, placed in the top 5% of schools at GCSE and with a strong record of excellence at Sixth Form level. 98% of students leave to study at university with a good number gaining admission to Oxford and Cambridge.|
Some two thirds of the current 606 pupils are boarders from the immediate surrounding area and further afield in the UK. There is also a significant contingent of pupils from overseas as all those with a full UK or EU passport is entitled to apply for admission.
Old Swinford Hospital is, by tradition, a school for boys. However, since September 2004 the Governors have been offering places to girls wishing to study in the Sixth Form as day students.
The School was designated a Business and Enterprise College in September 2004 and our new business centre, the 'Business Hub', was opened on 14th September 2006 by Miles Templeman, director general of the Institute of Directors. The Business Hub is the centre for work related business and enterprise resources for school and community use and has ICT facilities available for students.
