The Alumni et Amicitia Association is for former pupils, staff and friends of Leehurst Swan, La Retraite, La Retraite Swan and the Swan School.

Welcome! This organisation has been established to bring together former pupils of the schools which now form Leehurst Swan.  For a century there has been a school at the top of Campbell Road in Salisbury. Many former pupils still live in the area, others have dispersed far and wide, both in this country and abroad.  Some families have attended through two and three generations.

We would like to hear from everyone who has been associated in any way with all these schools. If you would like to be kept in touch with the activities of the Alumni et Amicitia Association and with developments at Leehurst Swan, please return the slip below, or let us have the same information by email to alumni@leehurstswan.org.uk or by leaving a phone message on 01722 333094.

Leehurst Swan School – A Centenary History by Jane Howells


Written to celebrate the centenary of the school, this book traces the fascinating history of the school using memories from staff and students as well as historical records. It is generously illustrated with archive images and modern photographs. There are chapters on Leehurst Convent 1914-1953, the Swan School from the 1930s to the 1990s, La Retraite 1953-1996, and the co-educational school to the present day. Former headmaster, Roger Leake, contributed the introduction and a conclusion that looks forward to the next stage in the story of Leehurst Swan School.

Books are available from our school
