Welcome to our school

Swanshurst is a thriving school for girls aged 11-19 years. We have outstanding students and our aim is to always provide an outstanding education for each and every one of them - so that every student develops a thirst for knowledge and  makes the very best progress possible, achieves the greatest success they can in examinations and excels in every area of school life. 

As a Leading Edge school, a specialist science college and a former DfE Training School, now a leading strategic partner with two local TSAs, we are at the forefront of educational development and flourish in partnership with many schools and colleges.

We strive constantly to actively make an impact in every way we can and to serve our school community. We are very proud of our school and especially proud of our students. They are safe, happy, enquiring young people who enjoy their learning and relish new opportunities. I hope that as you explore the different parts of our website you will see why.
