Partnerships

We are incredibly proud and privileged to have successful working partnerships with Marlborough College and many local businesses.  These partnerships play a key part in providing exceptional learning experiences for our students and support our vision to enable them to Dream Big, Aim High, Reach Far.  The enriching activities that our partners provide help us to develop students who are confident, resilient, independent and willing to face challenges in the knowledge that they have the skills to succeed.

Marlborough College

Our prestigious partnership with Marlborough College has grown over the last nine years into a thriving and constantly evolving association.  Students from Swindon Academy and Marlborough College spend time together at Subject Residentials from year 9 into Sixth Form and students in year 10 build strong friendships and gain new experiences from their student exchanges.  Older students receive support with UCAS application writing and our primary students benefit from visits to Marlborough College, where they have the opportunity to visit the Observatory and engage in cultural events.

In addition, students from Swindon Academy and Marlborough College engage in friendly yet competitive football matches, society debates and benefit from shared seminars, trips and enrichment activities.

Local Businesses

We are very fortunate to have a wide range of businesses who work alongside us to support in preparing our young people for the world of work.  Employees from local companies are involved in mentoring programmes for our students, providing beneficial coaching and guidance, which students have found really useful.  In addition, local businesses engage in interview days, support students in writing their CVs, teach them how to conduct themselves in interviews and provide an invaluable and unique opportunity that enables our students to grow in confidence and develop new skills.  Thank you to:
