What is a Grammar Stream?

Swindon Academy Grammar Stream was launched in September 2016 and is the only Grammar Stream in Swindon.  A Grammar Stream is an educational arrangement whereby a group of students are educated in a mainstream school, but follow a Grammar School-style curriculum, taught by subject specialist teachers. 

Our offer here has several advantages over Grammar Schools: it enables local pupils to enjoy a Grammar-style curriculum, without having to commute long distances outside Swindon. Pupils who attend the Grammar Stream are from a variety of backgrounds and are mixed gender, meaning that they learn how to socialise and communicate effectively with others. The cohort also enjoy the community, facilities and enrichment activities provided to the other students at Swindon Academy.

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.
