Welcome to Sawtry Village Academy

Sawtry Village Academy has a friendly and welcoming sixth form and we pride ourselves on strong student support and tutoring.

Our students tell us that they appreciate the level of independence we offer, and value the continuous support offered by teachers, tutors and colleagues.


We look forward to welcoming students from the Sawtry catchment areas and from further afield to our sixth form.

The Ofsted report from June 2014 stated:

“The leadership of the sixth form is good. The good achievement identified at the last inspection has continued. The number of students in the sixth form is rising and more students are applying to join the sixth form from outside the academy. The curriculum in the sixth form has a number of options and students receive good advice as to the right courses for them. As a result, the numbers that successfully finish their courses is very high. Personal support from the sixth form administrator is highly valued by the students. The leader of the sixth form is responsible for the risk assessment of trips and off-site visits for the whole academy and this work is thorough and very well organised”.

Come and pay us a visit, we know you’ll like what you see.
