If you're around, please come and give us a wave and a cheer as we process through our local neighbourhood. 

ALUMNI (former pupils)

As we celebrate Swaffield School's 125th Anniversary this year, we'd love our former pupils to be part of our celebrations. 

How To Get Involved:

Swaffield Summer Fair - Saturday 25th June 

Join us at the Swaffield Summer Fair - 12pm to 3pm, which is the focal point of our 125th Anniversary celebrations. This is a family and community event where we'll get together to have fun and celebrate our anniversary. We'll have lots of stalls at the event and also some special guests. Want to support us? Email: pta@swaffield.wandsworth.sch.uk

  • DONATE
    If you’d be willing to make a donation to our alumni fund we’d be grateful as this will give ongoing support to Swaffield children.
    Funds will be used to support school initiatives for the benefit of current pupils. One key item for which we're raising funds is a huge picture to go on the cupboards in our new library, which is being installed in June.

    Share a memory of Swaffield School in our 125th Anniversary celebration memories book:
    Please:

    - or, if you're not able to attend, please email us your message 
    Send your message to news@swaffield.wandsworth.sch.uk 
    with the subject line: Memories Book. Messages should be in this format: 
    Your name / the dates you attended Swaffield School / a short summary of your best memory of your time here

  • 125 Things 
    We’re collecting 125 things that represent Swaffield’s history. If you have a photo of something or an object (that you’d be happy for us to keep) that you feel could help us to illustrate our 125 year history, tell us what it is of and its role in Swaffield history. 
    These need to be sent to us by 11th May so that they can be included in an exhibition at the summer fair
    Email news@swaffield.wandsworth.sch.uk with the subject line: 125 Things and tell us what the photo is of and when it was taken. If you have an object that you would like to give to the school for us to keep, please let us know. 

  • Inspire The Next Generation 
    We'd like to share inspirational stories from former pupils with our children. You don’t have to be / have been a rocket scientist or a concert pianist for your career and life to be an inspiration!
    Swaffield is a highly creative, forward-thinking community school where the children are taught the skills and knowledge to succeed not only in school, but in life. We want every child, whatever their background, to succeed and to be inspired by people who help them see that this is possible.
    Do you have a story to inspire them? Write something to tell us where your education took you, about your career choice and your working life/achievements. Our aim will be to share these stories in writing and also hope to invite some past pupils in to speak at an assembly.
    To offer your story, please email news@swaffield.wandsworth.sch.uk
