Learning Support Assistant
Old Swinford Hospital is one of the country’s leading state boarding schools. Over fifty per cent of the School’s students are boarders who come from a wide range of backgrounds in the UK and also the EU and overseas. OSH looks and feels like a very British school. The atmosphere is calm and orderly, and also very relaxed because for the majority of our pupils their school is also their home. Parents, pupils and staff are all on the same side and pupils want to learn. We have just had two very favourable Ofsted visits, one for boarding and one for curriculum.
We enjoy a very good academic reputation and regularly feature in the lists of the most academically successful maintained schools. We’re not about league tables, however. This school prides itself on a balance of academic achievement and outstanding opportunity for our pupils to develop as well rounded people. Our extensive extra-curricular programme contributes to our pupils becoming happy, healthy and interested young people, for whom sport, music, art, drama, outdoor pursuits and DofE feature strongly.
From Years 7-11 Old Swinford Hospital admits boys. Our Sixth Form is mixed.
