Shoebox Appeal      

Swanmore College is taking part in the Wessex Rotary Shoebox Appeal to create shoeboxes of donations to send to disadvantaged children in Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and Ukraine. Each tutor group has been tasked with filling two shoeboxes and we would be grateful if any donations could please be brought in with your child and handed to their tutor by Thursday 2 November 2023. Pupils are aware of the items required.

Christmas Lunches

The final deadline for making payment and selecting food options for the Christmas lunches is tomorrow, Wednesday 1 November 2023. Payment can be made via Scopay or by cash/cheque to pupil reception (cheques should be made payable to Hampshire County Council, with your child's name/tutor group on the reverse and on the envelope). We will not be able to add your child's name to the lunches unless you order by tomorrow as we must order the food well in advance.


On Thursday 2 November 2023, we will be having an outside speaker from the DRED organisation coming into Swanmore College to deliver an informative and useful presentation to all year groups. Additionally, there will be a presentation for parents/carers by Bob Taite of DRED at 5:30 pm in the Main Hall. If you would like to attend, could you please return the attached attendance slip with your child.


Please see attached the timetable of PE clubs and fixtures that are taking place this week. Please note that the Football Club on Friday will be for Year 9s only this week.

Please note that the following after-college clubs are cancelled on Thursday 2 November due to the Year 8 Parents' evening:
