Last week, our Year 11 students were given the opportunity to experience life in the Swans Sixth Form, on our IB Taster Days. They got to learn about the large variety of subjects offered by the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Swans, plus advice about the course structure and why we value IB so highly, with the aim of helping them to make informed choices about the options available after (I)GCSE. As part of the process, the Headteacher and the Sixth Form Leadership Team produced a short video outlining the principles of the International Baccalaureate and the "next steps".

Across the two days, our Year 11 students enjoyed IB lessons in History, Geography, Psychology, Business Management, Biology, Physics, Sports Science, Environmental Systems and Societies, Film, Theatre, Visual Arts, Chemistry, French, Computer Science and Economics. We were extremely proud to see our students embracing the advanced curriculum, fully engaging in the lessons and enjoying the process. Feedback has been incredibly positive and we look forward to welcoming another very successful cohort into the Sixth Form next year.
We now ask all Year 11 parents to answer this short questionnaire. It has been designed to enable you to pose additional questions to us that perhaps were not answered in the video or during the IB Taster Day. From these queries, we will then tailor an informative Sixth Form Parent Package, to be distributed next term..
(Parents from other year groups are also welcome to complete the questionnaire and register their interest in the Sixth Form.)
The Swans School Sixth Form offers a fantastic range of subjects with experienced IB teachers, unrivalled by any other educational centre on the Costa del Sol.
Our Sixth Form graduation ceremony 2020 was a very emotional event, celebrating all that had been achieved throughout their years at Swans School and wishing our graduates well for the next stage of their lives.
It was an exceptional year of results, achieved in very difficult circumstances, with twelve new names added to the Swans School “40 Points Club” board, that can be seen in the Secondary School reception.
