Prep and Pre-Prep

Swanbourne House provides a continuous education from 3 to 13. The school comprises Lower (3s - 8s), Middle (9s and 10s) and Upper (11s and Top Year).  3s - 6s have lessons in and around the Manor House and 7s - Top Year in the Main House. All pupils enjoy the benefits of our whole site and the expertise of specialist teachers.

Most of our pupils will experience boarding at some stage in their time at the school. Pupils may board from the age of 7 and a variety of boarding options are open: full, weekly and flexi-boarding.

Our aim is to give pupils a broad education within a Christian ethos. The range of subjects within the curriculum and the many extra-curricular activities available enable all children to find areas in which they can thrive and discover their talents.

We call most of our year groups by the age of the children at the start of the academic year so that we have the following comparison with National Curriculum terminology:
