I am extremely honoured to be Head of Sixth Form at Great Western Academy.  GWA Sixth Form opened in September 2018 and is the only Sixth Form school in the North Swindon area.  We are committed to providing the local community and surrounding area with an exceptional Post 16 education and aim to be the number one choice for Sixth Form in North Swindon.  We welcome students each year from a number of local secondary schools.
