Lydiard Park Academy opened its doors to new pupils for the first time in September 2012, and added a Sixth Form in 2014. We have celebrated excellent GCSE results and are very pleased with our first A-Levels. Now, as the lead school in the Park Academies Trust, we hope to make an even more significant contribution to education in the Swindon area.


Lydiard Park Academy is the successor school to Greendown Community School. The granting of Academy status in August 2011 was testimony to how successful Greendown had become and the Academy has gone from strength to strength. We have recently celebrated another record year for GCSE results and a very successful first set of A level results from our new Sixth Form. In 2016, LPA became the lead school in the Park Academies Trust Our vision is to build a trust that makes a significant contribution to improving education in Swindon and surrounds.
