Swell School is a Church of England Controlled School. We have a Christian foundation which we seek to translate into practices which influence the life of the school and the lives of the children. We aim to encourage Christian standards and values through the quality of experience which is provided and the example set.


Swell School has a strong family ethos; our small size makes it possible to know our children and families well. We aim to provide a secure, happy and successful learning environment for our children, enriching our curriculum with educational visits and a creative approach to our learning.


We aim to celebrate the achievements of each individual child and the school itself, which currently holds both Sports Mark and Healthy School Status.
