The Department for Education have released their secondary school performance data for 2023.
This information compares and ranks all the schools in the country based on the progress that students make whilst in 11-16 education.
Swanlea is delighted to say our Progress 8 score of +1.27 means that we are the 3rd best school in the country for the progress of disadvantaged pupils and also the 21st best school in the country overall.
As well as being the top school in Tower Hamlets for attendance and progress, Swanlea is now proud to be one the highest achieving institutions in the UK.
Our Headteacher, Ms. Landers had this to say, ‘This superb accomplishment is a testimony to the efforts of our wonderful pupils, parents / carers and amazing staff.’
Well done to everyone involved in delivering this exceptional success story!
Mayor of Tower Hamlets Luthfur Rahman paid a visit to Swanlea School to witness firsthand the positive impact of his new initiative to support families. He has pledged that every student in Tower Hamlets, regardless of their financial background, is entitled to a free lunch. Mayor Rahman’s visit to Swanlea School not only highlighted the health benefits of his decision, but also on the broader effects for children’s educational and emotional wellbeing.
Headteacher of Swanlea School, Brenda Landers, supported the decision, ‘We are proud to be a flagship school in the roll out of this initiative. Students at Swanlea, along with their parents and carers, will benefit educationally from the positive effects of a healthy, nutritious lunch in our fantastic school canteen.’
