The school was formerly known as Swinton Community School and was renamed Swinton Academy on 1 October 2016 after joining with Aston Academy. In November 2011 the former school was inspected by Ofsted and was judged to be a good school with a good sixth form. Mr John Morrison introduced vertical tutoring and the house system to allow people in different year groups to talk to one another and create school wide challenges and events for all 4 houses: Intrepid, Illustrious, Endeavour and Valiant.
