Welcome to our Swindon Traded Services website!

Swindon Traded Services offer an extensive range of services, provided by both the Local Authority and through working in partnership with Wiltshire Council.  

Our overriding aim is to provide a local, joined up portfolio of traded services that are for the benefit of schools and colleges, parents and above all, for pupils. We are proud to have a clear vision for what we do:

Offering services that enable schools to help children and young people fulfill their potential in life

We are very proud of the services we offer, and we have listened carefully to feedback from schools, which has been used to model the services themselves, as well as the way we deliver them. We welcome feedback on how we might improve these even further.

We aim to provide high quality services whilst delivering excellent value for money for schools and academies.

New services are again available this year, so please do browse the selection we offer, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions. 

We look forward to working with you in the near future!

The Vision for Education in Swindon
For every child, irrespective of background, to fulfil their potential through the best education possible
