Swanmore College - Centre of Excellence is a secondary school located in the village of Swanmore. Its 1236 pupils are drawn from villages and towns from across the area, including the nearby Bishop's Waltham. The college has achieved Sports-mark, Investors in People and an Enhanced Healthy School award.[2]


A secondary school was first built in Swanmore in 1961, becoming a comprehensive school in 1971.[3] During the early 2000s Swanmore School was renamed Swanmore College of Technology after receiving specialist status in technology. In September 2012, the new headmaster Mr Kyle Jonathan brought a new slogan to the college, 'Centre of Excellence'. .[4]


Swanmore College has a sports hall, playing fields, dance studio and facilities used by the pupils. A new community area with a designated entrance to encourage pupils and parents to be a part of community life has recently been built.[5]
