Swords Community College

Mission Statement and Ethos

Mission Statement and Ethos

Swords Community College (SCC) was established in 2018 to meet the second level, educational needs of a growing community in Swords. We commit ourselves to work for this purpose with dedication and professional expertise. We acknowledge and value the active support we receive from parents, the Board of Management and Dublin & Dun Laoghaire ETB in all aspects of school life.

Swords Community College is a warm, welcoming, inclusive, innovative, multi-belief college, which puts the learners at the centre of all activities. We encourage the development of 21st Century learning skills, allowing learners to take ownership of their learning; to explore, enquire and direct their own learning experiences. All our learning practices are facilitated by a team of passionate and dedicated teachers. Swords Community College will provide technology-enhanced learning environments, as we aspire to be a Digital School. This alongside traditional methods combines to create our 'tradigital' school. Learners use iPads and other technologies in the classroom on a daily basis, allowing us to build the school of the future, now.

Swords Community College will strive for the highest academic standards, yet these will be built on the foundation of exceptional pastoral care structures. Our learners will be safe and respected in school, which then allows them to succeed and achieve their full potential. We work with learners to develop the knowledge and skills they will need for third level education and for life itself.
