Swindon Academy, and consequently United College Sixth Form, has a prestigious and active partnership with Marlborough College. This partnership supports our students across the whole academy, however in sixth form the partnership particularly benefits student who wish to attend university. Students receive support and advice in completing their UCAS applications, they are invited to talks at Marlborough College about university life and attend visits to Oxford or Cambridge and Russell Group Universities.
Students can take part in residential learning weekends, along with students from Marlborough College, to help with revision and improve their exam strategies.
