Beyond the Classroom

Part of the joy of running a prep school on a full boarding timetable is the diversity of activities we are able to offer to all our pupils and the time to do it in. We encourage our children to be busy, to be inquisitive, to challenge themselves and to not be afraid to be challenged by others.

At Swanbourne House we believe that education is about developing character as well as talents in many areas. Through tutoring and a wide range of activities we seek to build the children's sense of responsibility for themselves and for each other, a spirit of service towards others and an awareness of what they can do to influence their school community for the better. Extra-curricular activities, a strong leadership programme, day trips and weekends away all give the opportunity for a full and rich school life for every pupil.
