The Swanage School welcomes applications for admission for children entering years 7, 8 and 9 in September 2013.
As a new school, The Swanage School admissions process remains open until the school is full - you can apply to us at any time, though applying sooner enables us to plan our staffing more efficiently. Places applied for after 1 March 2013 will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
To apply, please fill in the online admissions application form. If you are unable to complete the online form for any reason please contact The Swanage School on 01929 500599 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Education Swanage is committed to equality of access and opportunity, unbiased treatment and equal value of all individuals, irrespective of gender, ethnicity, social and economic background and circumstances, sexual orientation, physical or intellectual capability, nationality, religion or belief.
The admission of children with statements of special educational needs will be the same as at mainstream schools in Dorset and is covered by the Education Act 1996. Further guidance on admissions is available in our admissions policy document, which is available for download here.
