The School at The Swan
The Green Room School is for young people who can no longer access mainstream education. Using a combination of therapeutic, academic, creative and physical education, the aim is to significantly change the lives of our pupils and their families, to start a path to a better life.
The Green Room provides all pupils with opportunities so they can move on to further education, employment or their own business ventures. The GR6 Sixth Form programme is a much needed alternative for pupils who want to prepare further, or may not be ready or not fully equipped yet to thrive in a college or school sixth form environment.
Graduates from GR6 can progress to The Graduate Scheme aimed to assist students bridge the gap between leaving school and the world of work with a bespoke programme of preparation and work experience. The Swan is an integral part of this.
The Sixth Form students of GR6 are completing individual projects on the theme of communications. These are diverse, extremely interesting and will be published soon. The Swan Elders - locals who donate their time - are key in passing on the baton.
New for the 2020-21 term is the addition of the IT suite in the newly refurbished Coach House. This facility will allow students to learn valuable and practical computing skills for future jobs
The Swan offers a unique setting for pupils to continue their education, gain useful skills and become part of their community. Both GR6 and Graduate Scheme pupils have access to The Swan and especially the School House.
The School utilises all the different areas of The Swan to foster engagement and promote learning. Lessons can be in The School Room, the IT suite, the ground floor of The Coach House or even in The Courtyard.
