Principal's Welcome

I am fortunate to lead this successful and happy academy with our hardworking, enthusiastic students, ambitious staff, supportive parents and committed governors. 

We are all very proud of our academy and its successes.  In May 2017, Ofsted judged our academy as 'Good' in all areas.  We offer funded Nursery provision and a thriving Primary Phase.  We are also delighted about our greatly improved examination results and that Swindon Academy is the number one school in Swindon, and in the top 20% of schools nationally, for Progress 8 measures.  Additionally, we are proud of our popular Grammar Stream provision from Year 7, which provides a unique educational experience for very able students from across Swindon.  We also have the most comprehensive provision of enrichment activities for students in the area and we are able to offer entry to our welcoming and successful Sixth Form to students from other schools.  We make no secret of striving for excellence in every aspect of school life. 

At Swindon Academy, we want all children to succeed both academically and socially so they will be well prepared for adult life in a changing society.  As such we treat our pupils as individuals and we are strongly committed to providing equal opportunities for all.

We constantly seek new horizons to enrich our children's lives.  We have a unique partnership with Marlborough College, where our students regularly benefit from visits, residentials and collaborative projects, as well as receiving coaching and mentoring from staff and students at Marlborough.

We endeavour to give all children confidence and a sense of purpose and direction so that their lives are enriched by attending Swindon Academy.  We do our utmost to make school a positive and memorable experience for our pupils.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you would like to find out how attendance at Swindon Academy can benefit your son/daughter.
