Inspire, Empower, Flourish

Welcome to our school

Mrs Christine Lethbridge, Headteacher                              Inspire, Empower, Flourish!


We believe every child deserves the very best start in life and here at Swithland we give each child the opportunity to grow: personally, academically and spiritually. Our children do consistently make outstanding progress academically and achieve the highest results - and we believe this is because of how we nurture each child within the Christian ethos of our school - Christine Lethbridge, Headteacher


Every child knows just how much he or she is valued for just who they are within our school and this gives them the confidence to strive to 'live life in all its fullness.' (John 10:10).

We do this by working in partnership with parents, the whole school community and Church - building relationships that have the most positive impact on developing our children. That relationship starts from the very first contact with the school; everyone is welcome to join our school family. 


We ensure that we inspire our pupils through our curriculum and their experiences in school, empower them by giving them the skills, knowledge and confidence they need so that they can flourish in whatever field they can excel in.

Thank you for visiting and we look forward to hearing from you.
