Our School

A warm welcome to the Sweyne Park School, a very successful academy school in Rayleigh, Essex. From September 2014 our age range is 11-18, with the opening of a new sixth form.

Our school is a safe and happy environment and central to our school is a belief in respect - respect for yourself, respect for others and respect for the environment. We believe that our focus on respect leads to high expectations and excellent discipline, and this in turn leads to the highest possible achievement for each individual pupil.

At Sweyne Park we are determined to provide first class teaching and learning for all our pupils. This aim is supported by our commitment to recruiting and retaining the very best staff, and our nationally recognised programme of staff training. We do our utmost to ensure our pupils achieve excellent examination results. We have a strong commitment to science, whilst providing a broad and balanced academic curriculum with a wide range of cultural, sporting and social opportunities.

We are committed to very strong partnerships between home, school and community members. We believe that the whole community can contribute to motivating and supporting pupils’ progress.

Donate and help protect a child from the Ebola virus

The Ebola outbreak is West Africa is one of the deadliest the world has ever seen. Right now children are in danger and they need your help.

UNICEF is doing everything it can to stop the spread of the Ebola virus but we don’t have enough funds to reach every child and community in danger. We urgently need more donations to provide household protection kits containing gloves, masks, soap and chlorine to prevent the spread of the virus.

You can help us reach children affected by the Ebola outbreak and prevent the spread. Just £30 could buy and deliver a protection kit to keep children safe from Ebola.

Please donate now...
