Admissions - Nursery

Visiting Swaffield School

Current government guidelines mean that we are asking prospective pupils and their parents/carers
to get in touch so that we can share our school with them in a virtual way as we're unable to invite you into school.

This will include the opportunity to speak to our Head Teacher, Ms Hamilton. 

Please get in touch with the School Office:

Swaffield is a very happy school which is focused on pupils’ learning. 
Parents are highly positive about the school and its work. 
This in part is due to your high expectations of pupils’ work.
