I'm delighted that you have an interest in working at Swindon Academy.
When Swindon Academy opened in September 2007, it was the first 0 - 19 Academy in the country. We now operate from two sites, one in Pinehurst (Nursery - Sixth Form) and one in Penhill (Nursery - Year 6). This has been, and still is, an exciting time for all of us and is a unique opportunity to be involved at the leading edge of educational development and with the regeneration of a community, which has been largely received little investment for so long.
Our academy sponsor is United Learning who are keen to involve staff in shaping our future, ensuring that we remain an inclusive school in the heart of its community.
This summer’s GCSE results were the best ever achieved in the academy’s history. Whilst other schools’ 5 A*-C figures were detrimentally affected by new, challenging GCSEs, we have vastly improved, taking the school from 40% 5 A*-C including English and maths to 66% in 2017, making Swindon Academy one of the top schools in Swindon and the most improved. In addition, in terms of Progress 8 measures, Swindon Academy is the top school in Swindon and in the top 20% of schools nationally, meaning that students are making greater progress than expected.
At Swindon Academy we are looking to appoint committed, enthusiastic and talented teachers who relish the opportunity to be involved in a fast-paced and innovative environment, making a significant difference to the lives of young people. We are a strong and hardworking team who take the education and safeguarding of our young people very seriously.
We are proud to provide our students with state-of-the-art facilities, which add value to their educational experiences. These, combined with excellent teaching and resource provision gives them the very best opportunities to maximize their learning potential.
We look forward to hearing from you.
