Welcome to Swakeleys School for Girls


Swakeleys is a thriving and successful, multi-cultural school for girls in the London Borough of Hillingdon, with our own mixed 6th Form, offering over 30 different courses. We are over-subscribed, have an excellent climate for learning. This year, the government has introduced the new harder GCSE Maths and English qualifications graded 9-1 with 9 being of an even higher standard than the previous A*. We are delighted to say that 14 of our girls achieved these top grades with three getting them in both English and English Literature. We are extremely pleased with our results which reflect the hard work of both pupils and staff. For the fifth year running, more than 20% of the girls achieved more than 5A*-A/9-7 grades and 42% secured the prestigious English Baccalaureate qualification which requires them to achieve good passes in English, Maths, Science/Computer Science, a Modern Foreign Language and History or Geography.

Ofsted November 2013 judged us to be OUTSTANDING in all aspects of provision.
