Headteacher’s Message

Welcome to The Swinton High School’s website. It is a great privilege to be the Headteacher of such a thriving community, where we believe Respect is the key to working together successfully.

This is an exciting time for the school following yet another record breaking set of summer examination results. As a Converter Academy, we continue our drive for excellence in everything we do, in order to better our students’ life chances. The statement ‘Strive to Achieve’ underpins all our work and reflects the beliefs of all students, staff and Governors here at the school. Collectively, we build our students’ aspirations; give them the skills and opportunities to achieve them; and create leaders in the community.

An example of our drive to provide our students with the best possible opportunities is seen with our current facilities development programme. We have received an impressive £3.3 million of government funding which is being used to develop the school.

Once completed, the funding from the Academies Capital Maintenance Fund will mean the school will have created seven refurbished science laboratories, a new purpose-built maths block, new PE changing facilities, a remodeled ground floor corridor, two new additional classrooms on the ground and first floors, and a complete new build to house our new reception and entrance area. Significant sections have been finished in time for the start of this academic year and are already encouraging our students’ passion for learning.

On arriving at The Swinton High School, you immediately notice the excellent relationships evident between students and staff and the purposeful environment evident in lessons. With this foundation, our students’ journey to being confident, happy and able to achieve their aspiration has already started.
