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.

Michael Sheen: We can’t leave Syrian children in the cold
