Wider Curriculum

"The Wider Curriculum at Swanshurst school will offer a ‘Swanshurst Guarantee’ –
that students will leave with a wide breadth of the enriching experiences
and powerful knowledge that they will need in the future.

These enriching experiences will be fun and engaging for all students who will be
encouraged,supported and praised through the wider curriculum. This will allow students
to address gaps in knowledge and to make deep connections within their curriculum."


At Swanshurst School we are currently working to increase opportunity and availability of Extra curricular activities to our students as part of our Wider Curriculum. As our curriculum intent states, we want these to be available to all students in our community, so please keep checking back to see what we have on offer. Our current offer is below, starting with PE:

Lessons don’t stop when pupils leave the classroom. As a school we pledge that students are entitled to extend learning opportunities which include extra-curricular activities and access to a wide variety of trips and visits. And a variety of other clubs is also currently available, from Music and Science, to Drama and Orchestra.

Thank you for all the interest and engagement so far, including from those who started the process last year but couldn’t finish!
