A Grammar Stream has several advantages over Grammar Schools: firstly, a Grammar Stream in Swindon enables local pupils to enjoy a Grammar-style curriculum, without having to undertake a long bus journey twice daily to Grammar Schools outside of the Swindon area. Secondly, pupils who attend the Grammar Stream are from a variety of backgrounds and are mixed gender, meaning that pupils learn how to socialise and communicate effectively with others.
Swindon Academy is well-placed to provide a Grammar Stream for several reasons: Firstly, we have a highly successful partnership with Marlborough College, a prestigious private school that supports the educational experiences of our pupils. Secondly, Swindon Academy was rated a ‘Good’ by Ofsted in June 2022 in all areas. Thirdly, Swindon Academy is the top school in Swindon for student progress.
