The Green Room School
The Green Room School
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.
GR6 Sixth Form
The Green Room School 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 (aka the Wings Project) 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, and can be seen on our Wings Project page.
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.
When the students take over The Swan to serve a range of coffees, cakes, toasties and pizzas. Also sell a range og home made products too. Supported by the Bar Staff and School, they learn a wide range of skills for the future. Truly Epic! Learn more.
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.

New for the 2020-21 term was the addition of the IT suite in the newly refurbished Coach House. The facility allows students to learn valuable and practical computing skills for future jobs. Lessons focus around use of modern business tools & applications and effective communications.
