Wrap-around care

In recent years there has been a growing demand for wrap-around care and Belmont Grosvenor has adapted to these changes by offering increased term time and holiday care.

This allows children to be engaged in activities in a familiar environment with their peers, benefits the changing needs of families, and becomes a further extension of school life.

History of Swarcliffe Hall

History of Swarcliffe Hall

History really comes alive for the children at Belmont Grosvenor School. Our magnificent Gothic building and extensive grounds are themselves a huge educational resource.

They inspire each and every one of our children, and give them the opportunity to experience and understand what life would have been like living in the Hall, as well as the family’s position, and the building’s prominence, in the locality.
