Swaffield School


Swaffield is a happy, diverse and friendly school. The teachers are dedicated,
warm and hardworking. The leadership team is taking the school from strength to strength and my children have had so many opportunities to grow,
in addition to the excellent academic progress they have made.

Swaffield combines rigorous teaching with being an inspirational and inclusive school.
I love the family atmosphere and find that communication with parents is excellent.
I regularly use the wraparound care which is a real strength. It's a huge support
                  for working parents as it runs until 6.30pm every day and it's very easy to book.
