Our "Pastoral" section is dedicated to supporting your child. For specific information tailored to each year group, please visit the dedicated page for your child's year.


Swanmore College prides itself on being a caring community.  Every effort is made to support pupils throughout their time with us, catering for their individual personal and social needs.

On entering Year 7, pupils will experience an Induction Process which is designed to put the pupils at their ease whilst exciting them about secondary education and the opportunities it creates.

Year 7 pupils are placed in the care of specialist Year 7 tutors who act as mentors and pastoral guides during the pupils’ first year at Swanmore.  They are supported in this by trained Peer Mentors.

Each Year group is co-ordinated by their Head of Year and supported by a Deputy Head of Year.

The main role of the Tutor is to mentor and support their tutees, whilst closely monitoring academic progress and social development.

At Swanmore we benefit enormously from the open and rewarding ‘Triangular Relationships’ between pupils, parents and staff.  The strength of these links supports the academic progress and personalised development of our young people and therefore, we welcome and encourage communication between home and college.

If you have any pastoral queries or concerns about your child, please get in touch with us using the Pastoral Team email addresses or the email address of your child’s Tutor on our Contact us page: Contact us
