Principal's Welcome Message

I am delighted to welcome you to Swallow Hill Community College and I hope that our website and prospectus gives you a flavour of the educational opportunities available to all students in the academy. Swallow Hill is a non-selective academy, welcoming girls and boys from all backgrounds from the local community.

Our academy is very much student-centred. Everything we do is designed to allow all to grow in confidence, develop as leaders, develop clear purpose in their lives and to demonstrate care for others day in day out. We want all of our students to ”make their best better”. 

We are fortunate to be able to enjoy superb accommodation. This has allowed our students to have access to the very best facilities in all aspects of the curriculum and it pushes us all to raise the bar and our expectations.

We have high expectations of our students and staff to deliver the highest standards. Teachers are encouraged to be imaginative and creative in order to create motivational and inspiring lessons. Through “Positive Discipline”, we seek to reward good progress, behaviour and outstanding work whilst also ensuring we maintain our commitment to safeguarding and the personal welfare of our students.

We are very much a community school and actively seek and promote partnerships with other local education providers and the wider community.

If you would like to visit us, meet members of our staff or just have a look around, please do contact us. We are always very happy to welcome you to our academy.

Mrs J Atkins-Mackley
Interim Principal
