‘Pupils and teachers report an improving climate for learning with pupils having better attitudes to learning’ Ofsted 2016
Swallow Hill is first and foremost an inclusive 11-16 community school and proud to serve the communities of Wortley, Armley, Bramley and surrounding areas. Over the last 3 years our school has been transformed and we have moved out of the serious weakness category.
The academy is committed to exacting high standards, to developing outstanding learning with staff and students. Students’ success lies at the heart of everything we do. Swallow Hill is a warm and welcoming academy where genuinely every person matters. Seeing the potential in every young person and encouraging exceptional progress is at the centre of our approach. Recognising and developing students’ personal strengths and skills is very important to us – the quality of our support and care is extremely high and as a strongly inclusive school it is our belief that aspiration is for all.
We relish the opportunity and responsibility for driving student success forwards and we are very proud of the achievement of all of our young people.
