Welcome to our Swindon Academy partnership careers site
Swindon Academy is an all through Academy, and part of United Learning, that provides funded nursery provision and Primary Phase education all the way through to sixth Form. It is the number one school in Swindon, in the top 5% of schools nationally for Progress 8 measures, and in May 2017 it was rated by Ofsted as “Good” in all areas. The school is genuinely comprehensive, providing opportunities for young people from areas of high social deprivation as well as offering Grammar Stream provision from Year 7 which provides a unique educational experience for very able students from across students. The school ethos is to treat their pupils as individuals and to provide equal opportunities for all – both academically and socially so they will be well prepared for adult life in a changing society.
Swindon Academy is a fantastic school to pursue your teaching career. It has a dynamic and outstanding Leader in Ruth Robinson with a committed and high quality leadership team; there is a strong, clear behaviour management philosophy centred around “disruption free learning”, that enables staff to deliver effective learning – you are noticeably struck by the engagement, orderly behaviour and low levels of noise; and there is high focus on CPD and skill development alongside a philosophy of promoting from within and providing strong career development opportunities.
In addition to this Swindon Academy provides an outstanding teacher training pathway through the initial teacher training scheme run by United Learning. This offers the ability to train while you teach so you can get the teaching qualifications you need without going back to university; receive high quality training from a team of tutors and mentors, including both professional studies and subject specific training.
