Lydiard Park Academy is a successful and popular academy serving the community of West Swindon and surrounds. We are an independent state funded academy and Sixth Form occupying an enviable site on the edge of Swindon, bordering Lydiard House and Park.
We are an academy with ambition - for the academy as a whole and for every individual that comes here. Our school motto "Potential into Performance" guides our efforts and we work hard to provide a safe and happy environment within which every pupil can grow to achieve personal, social and academic success. We believe that LPA can make a profound difference to the life chances of our pupils and that we can help nurture confident, active and socially responsible citizens. We are an inclusive school and go to great lengths to ensure that each child is fully supported to do as well as they can.
At Lydiard Park Academy we are fortunate to enjoy excellent facilities. We are even more fortunate to have an academy community that values and respects each individual, believes in supportive, respectful relationships and places a high emphasis on working hard to achieve your goal. The three way partnership between pupil, parent and teacher is central to this and I look forward to working with you during your child's time at LPA.
