Welcome to Greensward Academy
Greensward Academy has places available for students starting in Year 7 in September 2013. There are also some places in the current Year 7 group. If you would like more information or to make an appointment for a tour, please contact Mrs D Camy, Admissions Secretary.
We would be delighted for you to visit the Academy, education is very different now to when you were at school, so call in and see our happy, vibrant, disciplined environment. You may even want to return yourself!

School Dashboard Data
I was delighted to receive Greensward Academy's School Data Dashboard released by Ofsted today. This provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stage 4. The dashboard can be used by school governors and by members of the public to check the performance of all schools and similar across the country in which they are interested. The School Data Dashboard complements the Ofsted school inspection report by providing an analysis of school performance over a three-year period. Data can be filtered by key stage or by topic:
From this data it can be clearly seen that Greensward Academy has achieved extremely well, particularly in the areas of English and Maths and is placed in the highest quintile in five out of the seven areas measured. One of the areas we need to improve is our attendance and we ask you to support us to raise attendance levels by encouraging your child to come to school every day, remembering that the higher the attendance, the better the results your child will achieve at GCSE.
To look at the results in more detail, please click on the adjacent icon which will take you to the Ofsted website.
