Welcome from the Secondary Headteacher – Mrs Stokes

Welcome to the secondary phase website. This section is designed to give you some information about life in the secondary phase.  We are proud that Swindon Academy is the top school in Swindon, and in the top 20% nationally, for Progress 8 measures.  This means that pupils who attend our academy make greater than expected progress.  This is a testament to our commitment to our vision of inspiring our young people to dream big, aim high, reach far and become the best that they can be.

Swindon Academy is a happy school.  Visitors and, more importantly, our students, tell us this; they feel safe and secure and as such are well placed to learn to their potential.

Our students have six lessons each day; each lasting 1 hour and they also have a 30 minute tutor time or assembly each day. This means our students have significantly more teaching time than other local schools, which enables them to learn in greater depth, giving them opportunities to assess their own and each other’s work, and make significant progress.

In addition, students sit three formal exams each year, which means that we can give parents detailed feedback on learning and progress.  Teachers support students by creating excellent revision packs for every exam. Our online homework app also helps parents to monitor the regular homework that we set for every student.

All students are allocated to a College and become part of a small tutor group of about 17 students; made up of students from every year group in the secondary phase of the academy. This enables your son / daughter to make friends with peers in older year groups, have mentors and develop a strong sense of care and cohesion across the academy.

If you have any questions regarding your son or daughter’s time in the secondary phase, or would like to visit to have a look around the school, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours sincerely

Ms Stokes
Secondary Headteacher
