Where relationships are at the heart of the school and
the school is at the heart of the community

The Swanage School Way

Our students learn resilience – the understanding that to succeed we must try things, learn from any failure or mistakes, and persevere.

This key skill will set our students on course for a life full of ambition, confidence and success. It is summed up in our motto, ‘Omnia vinces perseverando’, which means ‘Perseverance overcomes all things’.

When the school was launched in September, the first intake of students worked together to determine ‘The Swanage School Way’:

At The Swanage School we...

  • Respect each other and treat others as we would like to be treated
  • Help members of the wider community
  • Strive for academic excellence
  • Take pride in our appearance
  • Do the best we can

We try, we fail, we learn, we succeed
