Following the good news about the identification of a site for The Swan School we are now able to take further steps to consult with the local community about the school.

In the coming months we will undertake a variety of activities to ensure that the views of the community are included as we take the necessary steps to ensure our new school opens in its new and purpose built buildings for the academic year 2019-20. If you are interested in The Swan School do please visit this page on a regular basis as we will update the page at least once per month as we provide information about consultation activities and what has been arising from these.

Plans for the future: A variety of consultation activities are being planned for future months and during the next academic year.

We will carry out a formal consultation concerning the school, which will include the catchment area and outline education plan during the Autumn of 2017.

We will also listen to the views of the community during our open meetings in June 2017 and during the Autumn consultation concerning the site and the building, whilst more detailed consultation about the planning and building programme are likely to take place slightly later in 2017 and early in 2018.As part of our June 2017 meetings we will also raise the proposal of developing a local community reference group who could work with the Trust during development of the school.
