You can apply for a primary school place starting September 2023 for a child born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019. Applications are made through Swindon Borough Council's website from 1 September 2022 until 15 January 2023. You may indicate your preference of school site (Swindon Academy has two primaries, Alton Close or Beech Avenue), however this cannot always be guaranteed if the school is oversubscribed.
We encourage parents to sign up for their child’s Reception place before the deadline of 15th January 2023. If you don't submit an application by the deadline, Swindon Borough Council will allocate your child a place at a school that has availability.
