Principal's Welcome | About Us | Swindon Academy

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 June 2022, Ofsted visited us and judged the Academy 'Good'. 

We offer funded Nursery places and a thriving Primary Phase.  We are also delighted that Swindon Academy is the number one secondary school in Swindon for GCSE progress and attainment. Additionally, our Grammar Stream provision from Year 7 provides a unique educational experience for very able students. After age 16, students move up to United College Sixth Form to study their A Levels and vocational qualifications. Our Sixth Form welcomes students from other schools in Swindon too.

We want our 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 have a wide range of enrichment activities for students. Our unique partnership with Marlborough College enables students to benefit from regular 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.
