Why the Swanswell name?
The new Academy was built as part of the multi million pound Swanswell Initiative which was a once in a lifetime opportunity to regenerate a large 160 acre area of Coventry that aimed to make the area an even better place to live and work. Within this area an excellent ‘Learning Quarter’ including the Academy, and City College are housed. We are also proud of our name being linked to the historic Swanswell pool has been here since the 12th century and was probably first created as a medieval monastic fishpond.
Now it is a tree lined ornamental pool with fountains and recreation space right next to the city centre where wild Swans live and of course we have adopted the Swan as our House identity.
