Meet Our Team

Mr Swarbrooke

 I am passionate about teaching and having taught for 18 years I consider it a privilege. I have taught in a variety of schools in South London, Shropshire, Vancouver, Bristol and now in Bath where I am proud to be the head teacher of Swainswick Church of England Primary School.

Outside of school, other than my wonderful family, my other passions are music and cycling. I can often lose hours searching for a new tune or playing my guitar. With regards to cycling, no matter how fast the world spins, I must always try and fit in time to ride my bike. If you see me at school, please check that I’m cycling to work ….and if I’m not then feel free to give me a telling off!

Apple Class

Mrs Charles


I am the Early Years and Year 1 teacher in Apple Class. I first visited Swainswick School 16 years ago… as a prospective parent for my eldest child and have been here ever since!

As an experienced Early Years Teacher I spend a lot of my time planning playful, engaging learning experiences…. and it gives me real joy when I see the children immersed in their learning.

When I’m at home I enjoy singing and pottering in my garden, and would love to do a 5K fun run this year!

I like to plan exciting topics to help children’s learning. I love teaching, reading, writing and Sudoku puzzles. My favourite books are the Harry Potter series. At home, I have 2 dogs and enjoys long walks through the woods or along Bath Sky Line.

“She has really benefited from the different ages mixing, she often talks of the older children.

We feel all the staff know her, which is so special.”
