It has been a privilege to work with such wonderful young people who have truly fostered the Swanlea values of respect, achievement and aspirations. We wish them every success for the future”.  

The headteacher, Ms Landers, was overjoyed by the results.  She stated, “These results are a testament to the continued academic excellence we pride ourselves for at Swanlea.  We are elated that so many of our students have got their first-choice universities, including the significant number who will be continuing their academic studies at Russell Group universities.”  Ms Landers further stated, “This is a fantastic set of results for both the school and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, our Governors, and, of course, the students themselves for their sheer determination and hard work!” 

It is no surprise that Swanlea Sixth Form remains a popular choice for many of our students. We are exceptionally pleased with the excellent achievement of all our sixth formers today and wish them much happiness and success in their future pursuits.
