Swindon Academy is a happy school. Our students and staff tell us this they feel safe and secure, and are well placed to achieve their potential while they are at Swindon Academy. We are an OFSTED Good rated school (June 2022), and the top performing school in Swindon.
The Secondary school day consists of six lessons each lasting 1 hour, with a 30 minute tutor time or assembly. In addition, students sit three formal exams each year, so we can give parents detailed feedback on learning and progress. Our Knowledge Organisers enable every student and their parents to keep tabs on the what they need to learn and the knowledge they must retain for each of their subjects.Teachers support students by creating excellent revision packs for every exam.
All students are allocated to a College and become part of a tutor group made up of students from every year group in the secondary phase. This enables your son / daughter to make friends with peers in older year groups, have mentors and develop a strong sense of family within the academy. To find out more about our culture please view Vision and Values.
