This half term our Christian Value is FRIENDSHIP and our Skill for Life is COLLABORATION.


We are a happy, family school with strong Christian values. We all work together to promote a love of learning where children succeed and reach their full potential. We hope you enjoy your visit.Hanley Swan Primary School is part of the Hanley and Upton Educational Trust


We have an allotment in the village and go there regularly to  explore Nature, search for minibeasts  and learn about gardening and growing produce. 

We have grown lots of vegetables over the  years and have enjoyed  growing peas, runner beans, onions, potatoes, courgettes, pumpkins, squashes and various herbs.

We have harvested some beautiful pumpkins and had a raffle for them, raising some more funds ready for buying seeds for next year!

We have benefitted so much from some brilliant help with weeding, strimming,digging and watering.  Please join in and help to make our allotment an even greater success!

Take a look at our photos and see what we have been up to!
