Academy Life‎ > ‎


In line with our ethos of ‘making our best better’ we believe that education is about educating the whole child. Opportunities for students to develop self-confidence, life skills and leadership experience is at the heart of the Academy Pledges. Students are encouraged to work through all three levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold) of each pledge before moving on after Swallow Hill.

The Pledges encourage students to be actively involved in the wider academy community and to realise that their experiences whilst at the academy stretch further than the classroom. 

Pledges can be completed in and out of the Academy but must be signed off by form tutors.  Certificates will be awarded for individual pledges at all levels.

The target for Key Stage 3 (Y7/8) is 3 Pledges

The target for Key Stage 4 (Y9-11) is 6 Pledges

The target for Key Stage 5 (16+) is 8 Pledges
