Introduction

We feel really proud of our schools and we would welcome the chance for you to come and see how we work and what we can offer your child. It is so important to visit a school during the normal school day, to be able to get a real feel of how it runs and for you to see whether our vision, methods and resources are something that your child would enjoy and be able to benefit from in the school years from Foundation Stage to Year 6. Please call the school offices to make an appointment to visit us.

 

Swanbourne Church of England (VA) School was reopened as a Key Stage 2 school in 2007 to cater for children aged 7-11 from the three villages of Swanbourne, Mursley, Little Horwood and Drayton Parslow, but we have a significant number of children who come to the school from Milton Keynes and surrounding villages. Mursley CE School and Drayton Parslow Village School both cater for children aged 4-7. Kingfishers Preschool based in Mursley is managed by the school and accepts children between 2 and 4 years old.

 

The schools work in collaboration to benefit from complementary use of staff, teaching resources and existing facilities. This also allows the schools to provide the type of services and facilities a larger school could provide, for example group school trips (including residentials) swimming lessons, hot school meals and wrap around care, while still retaining an enviable small village school feel.

 

The schools are situated in Swanbourne, Drayton Parslow and Mursley, small villages between Milton Keynes and Buckingham. The buildings are a mix of old and new with classrooms, libraries, a music room and group rooms. The school have playgrounds, grassed areas and a playing field at Mursley. The school utilises the village facilities including sports pitches, a swimming pool, Astroturf, village halls and churches.

We value and encourage the village school ethos and its role in village life and regularly welcome village residents to the school to partake in activities. Recently we have had presentations made by two separate residents who were involved in publishing in their working life to tie in with a 'Books and Authors' topic and in Religious Education, further residents were invited to a tea party to share their personal feelings about the importance of the church with the children.
