Welcome | UnitedCollege6f | Swindon Academy


I am very proud to lead United College Sixth Form (UCSF). The Sixth Form is the pinnacle of our mission at the Academy, to empower students to aim high and reach their bright futures.

We have designed the curriculum so that our students are provided with the environment, ethos and opportunities to develop high performing skills and qualities. This enables them to go onto the next stage of their life as confident and competent individuals.

We understand that it can be daunting moving from GCSE into A Levels, so we offer an exceptional level of support to keep students on track: both in terms of academic direction and study skills support, but we also prioritise their wellbeing. UCSF has a big family feel; everyone gets together in the dedicated Sixth Form centre. Within the centre, students have their own library, study rooms and ICT facilities. There is also a common room for the students to meet, work together and relax.

As well as a strong focus on their academic work, we encourage all UCSF students to be fully involved in the life of the Academy. Our Sixth Formers play an important part as leaders and role models to the younger years. We have a large student leadership team run by the Student Presidents. Roles within the team include charity and cultural event management, student wellbeing initiatives and academic mentoring. As well as contributing to the wider community these opportunities encourage the development of those skills which universities and employers are looking for.

Being a student here is an exhilarating and rewarding experience. We look forward to welcoming students from all over the Borough, and supporting them on their journey to a bright future.
