Sixth form taking shape!
Our new sixth form opens in September 2014 and pupils and parents who attended our very busy Sixth Form Information Evening were able to see the building and refurbishment plans for the sixth form accommodation. As well as using the existing specialist teaching rooms around the school, sixth formers will enjoy a spacious common room, a new study mezzanine level and a suite of sixth form seminar rooms. Through our collaborative arrangements with Ridgeway Sixth Form College students will also be able to choose from a much wider range of courses than is usually on offer at a single school. Prospective sixth form students are also able to make sure they choose well by testing their aptitude for different courses with the new 'Options' software platform. As we clearly explain in our prospectus (available through the link below) our aim is simple - to give students all the advantages of a traditional school sixth form but with the level of choice that students want. Lydiard Park Academy Sixth Form is not just for students already at the school and we already have a number of applications from students currently studying elsewhere. Our reputation is for excellent results and consistently good teaching, delivered in a friendly and welcoming community. If you're looking for somewhere that will challenge and support you to get the most from your post-16 education, why not come and see what we can offer?

£480.08 raised bag packing at ASDA West Swindon
On Sunday 24th November thirty seven pupils gave up a few hours of their time to lend a hand packing shopping at ASDA. The money raised will be divided equally amongst the four House charities. This was our biggest collection in three years. Thank you to the residents of Swindon for being so generous, ASDA for allowing us to hold this event and the pupils for working so hard.
