Leehurst Swan is an IAPS school for boys and girls aged 4 to 16 in Wiltshire.
About the school
We are a very successful school, with excellent examination results. We do not, however, achieve these impressive results by being highly selective. Rather our success lies in nurturing the individual qualities of every single pupil and providing an ethos in which personal achievement and success is normal. Our pupils are motivated, hard working and challenged to achieve. A programme of personal and social education complements their academic studies. Leehurst Swan has the calm and purposeful atmosphere of happy pupils at work.
Leehust Swan Lands a Square on Salisbury Monopoly!
The Salisbury Monopoly BIG REVEAL ...and LEEHURST SWAN SCHOOL is in the game!
14th October 2020 — Leehurst Swan School gets to star on the brand new MONOPOLY game for Salisbury, which hits the shops this morning (Wednesday 14th October)!
Today’s ‘Big Reveal’ of the official game – the MONOPOLY: Salisbury Edition - sees:
* Leehurst Swan featuring on their very own MONOPOLY space! The school gets to appear on the top green square, which is Bond Street in the classic game’s original.
* Salisbury Cathedral named on the highest ranking piece of MONOPOLY prime estate, Mayfair.
* Other landmarks that get to star on the board include Stonehenge, The Guildhall, Old Sarum, Salisbury Museum, Arundells and Charter Market.
* The four train stations from the original board take on a ‘travel’ theme.
* Three leading Salisbury charities each get to land on the game’s three Community Chest squares.
The board has been produced by Winning Moves UK, under official license from the MONOPOLY brand, owned by Hasbro.
George Shrimpton, Custom Games Executive at Winning Moves UK, says: “The game features the great and good of the city. It’s in effect .. A Love Letter to Salisbury!”
As well as ALL of the squares like Mayfair and Park Lane being exclusively Salisbury landmarks and addresses, most of the Chance and Community Chest cards are themed too. One card even sends players to the famous MONOPOLY jail for spilling coffee over Salisbury Cathedral’s priceless original copy of the Magna Carta.
Terence Ayres remarked, "We are incredibly proud to be included on the Salisbury Monopoly board. Leehurst Swan School is often described as Salisbury’s ‘best kept secret’ and we thrilled that our outstanding history of educating boys and girls from 4 to 16 over the last 100 years has been recognised by Winning Moves."
Lucy Earns Place in England Hockey Performance Centre
Congratulations to Lucy who, after trials last week, has earned a place in the U17 squad at the England Hockey Performance Centre in Southampton!
17th March 2020 — Lucy started playing hockey at primary school before joining Salisbury Hockey Club and, subsequently, playing for Wiltshire.
This is an outstanding achievement and everybody at Leehurst Swan is thrilled for Lucy and very proud of her. Mrs Pearce, Head of PE, remarked that 'Lucy is a great advert for trying hard and always giving everything.'
Congratulations to Leehurst Swan Year 11 pupil Ben Erickson who achieved an A* in Geography after sitting the IGCSE exam back in October half term!
27th January 2020 — Mrs Wright, Head of Teaching and Learning at Leehurst Swan, remarked that 'He worked with great commitment and tenacity, displaying tremendous independence and determination. Ben really pushed himself to get his coursework in in record time and to cover the topics that Year 11 hadn’t yet covered in Geography lessons. Ben will be able to take this qualification with him when the family relocates back to America later in the year.'
What an achievement for Leehurst Swan pupils! A staggering fifteen swimmers qualified to represent the south west region at the ISA national swimming championships at the iconic London Aquatic Centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
3rd December 2019 — Leehurst Swan swimmers competed in 40 events in both individual races and for the regional relay teams.
Special mentions should go to Ethan Hemming in Year 6 who swam an incredible 50m Breaststroke to land himself a silver medal and a PB, and to James Lee in Year 8 who earned a Bronze medal and a PB, in the Year 8 Boys 50m Breaststroke!
ISA hosted a top day of competition and gave pupils a day to remember.
Mr John Glen, MP for Salisbury, bravely agreed to a Q&A session with the senior students.
20th September 2019 — There were some great questions on Brexit, climate change and an MP’s role were all fielded expertly and with neutrality and we thank Mr Glen for giving us his time so generously.
Mr Glen remarked that it was 'good to be at Leehurst Swan for an intense grilling in the Q&A!' and was impressed with the 'excellent range of questions.'
