Welcome to Sir William Romney’s School

It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to our school.

Proudly comprehensive, we provide an aspirational, vibrant and supportive learning environment into which we welcome children of all academic abilities.  We understand that every child is unique and all our staff are committed to helping each one develop their independence, resilience and self-esteem; offering them every available opportunity to reach their full potential.

As reflected in our exceptional GCSE results, we have high academic expectations of all our students and offer a creative and aspirational curriculum whilst always respecting traditional values by demanding high standards of behaviour, attendance and appearance.

Sir William Romney’s has an excellent reputation as a caring and inclusive school where every child is known as an individual. We firmly believe that every child can achieve more than even they believe is possible, supporting all students to make outstanding academic and personal progress.

I hope that this website gives you a sense of our values and an insight into what the school experience is like for students at Sir William Romney’s.

If you want to find out more then please do not hesitate to contact the school to arrange a visit.

Activities Week

With our Year 10 and Year 11 students departing to the Ardeche this morning, everyone is looking forward to Activities Week (3rd-7th July) with great anticipation and excitement.  Many of our students are about to enjoy an exciting variety of residential trips; Year 7 will be departing for Normandy, Year 8 to the Isle of Wight and Year 9 to the Battlefields in Belgium.  This is my first experience of Activities Week at SWR and feel very fortunate to be visiting the battlefields in Belgium with a fantastic group of Year 9  students.

In addition to residential trips, students staying at school will also enjoy an exciting and varied programme of activities. Students will be visiting Weston-Super-Mare, West Midlands Safari Park and visiting Swindon Football Club. Staff across the school are also leading other activities based at school for students which include ‘Gorilla Gardening’, experiencing European culture and art, game design and experiencing the world of musical theatre!!

Throughout all of my blogs this year, I have constantly focused on aspiration, collaboration, confidence, resilience and independence as our key school values.  We passionately believe that Activities Week is crucial for all students to develop these skills and is integral to students becoming confident adults who take themselves out of their comfort zones.  It also helps that that everyone will have plenty of fun and enjoyment through this week too!

Finally, I must thank so many staff across the school who have made Activities Week possible and helped us to provide unforgettable memories for our students.  There is so much administrative support that takes place behind the scenes that I must firstly thank so many of our support staff who have worked tirelessly to ensure that Activities Week is a massive success.  Additionally, I must also thank all staff who have organised activities, who support individual students through next week or freely offer their own time to supervise residential visits.

I have already discovered that Activities Week is a huge undertaking, now is the time for students and staff to enjoy a fantastic week and challenge our students to take on new experiences that they may never have before!  Please follow our Twitter and Facebook accounts to see photographs and stories throughout next week, it’s going to be very busy!!
