My son is delighted with the online schooling and appreciates all of the effort made by the school. I have already mentioned this to his tutor, so that she can pass it on to all of you. I also am very grateful to Swans.
INES BENKIRANE, Class of 2018
I graduated from Swans in 2018. I am now studying in Switzerland at the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne. Having done the IB at Swans it is fair for me to say that it was an incredibly challenging programme, but all in all it was immensely rewarding. I always tell my friends and family that no matter how hard the IB was I would do it all over again, because it gave me the confidence to confront whatever came my way at after graduating from high school. Indeed, I can say that the IB really challenged me and pushed me outside my comfort zone in countless of ways which in return allowed me to grow not only academically but also mentally, opening my mind to different ways of thinking and doing things. In addition, the IB at Swans was very well designed. Being a relatively small year, teachers at school were able to give each one of us an individual attention, whilst at the same time giving us the responsibilities and independence we needed to grow. It was evident that we came into this two year long programme as young teenager and we graduated as young adults. The change was obvious, and it was thanks to such a well designed academic programme such as the IB, and of course our wonderful high school: Swans.
I strongly recommend the IB to everyone, because I truly believe that it is the stepping stone any student needs to gain the confidence to tackle life at university to their best potential and step into the “real world” with their head held high, and their diploma even higher.
DARYA FAYED, Class of 2011
Swans has literally been a second home for me.
I started in Early Years when I was only 2 years old and I left when I was 17. It has been the place where I’ve learnt many of the things that I know today and it’s where I made my first best friends. I still remember when Miss. Anne taught us how to swim or how we used to sing songs during assembly and when I think about these memories, I have to say, it incredible how fast we grow.
Right now I’m studying Psychology in Madrid, at the University of Comillas and I’m very happy to have chosen to come here.
