Post 11 Destination measures

At Swinton Academy we are committed to ensuring that students leave with the necessary skills and qualifications to access Post 16 education or training.  2017 data shows that 134 of the 136 (98.5%) students who progressed from Y11 at Swinton Academy went into full time education or training. In 2018 129/134 (96.2%) students from Y11 at Swinton Academy went into full time education or training.

In 2019, all Y11 students from Swinton Academy successfully progressed into full time education or training.   All these figures are well above the Rotherham average of 93% and that of State funded schools in England, which is 94%.  We are extremely proud of these successes.
