Why a Grammar Stream?
Swindon Academy is proud of its exceptional GCSE exam results. In 2016 we were one of the highest performing schools in Swindon. Additionally, we are the top school in Swindon, and in the top 20% of schools nationally, for Progress 8 measures. This means that pupils are making much greater progress from their entry levels than would be expected. There is now a high level of interest in the school from across the town.
The academy is highly ambitious for its students, and is pleased that Marlborough College, a top independent school, works in partnership with us to offer a Grammar Stream within the main academy. During the past nine years, the academy has forged a long-term partnership with Marlborough College which brings fantastic enrichment and extension opportunities to our pupils.
If your child is in year 5 or 6 and is academically gifted, we would encourage you to find out more about this exciting provision within Swindon Academy.
