With the today’s news full of GCSE results, I am delighted to be able to tell you that the students at Ipswich Academy have delivered really great results. Of the 106 students who entered, 50.9% have achieved at least a grade four or above (the old A*-C) in English and mathematics – up from 48.6% last year.
The new exam formats and marking scheme make comparison with previous years difficult, but the general consensus is that the absence of course work and the exams themselves were significantly harder than before which makes these results even more impressive.
I am delighted that the hard work of the students and staff has paid off.
Year 11 results can be picked up between 10am and midday on Thursday 24th August 2017.
Results must be picked up by the student, otherwise the person picking up the results must have a letter signed by the student and proof of ID.
Please see below end of term information letters:
Amanda will be buried at a private, family only ceremony in the next few weeks. Before that, Paradigm Trust will compile all the messages of condolences that it has received and present them to her family.
We will also be organising events to remember Amanda and celebrate her life and achievements for the children and adults across all the schools. We will be able to update you further as these plans make progress.
It is with tremendous sadness that I have to tell you that Amanda died yesterday. While on holiday in France earlier this week, Amanda suffered a fall incurring serious head injuries which proved fatal. I know I speak for us all when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with her husband and family.
Amanda’s death is a dreadful tragedy. She led Paradigm Trust with enormous energy, tremendous skill and most of all an enduring passion to give every child an outstanding education.
She will be missed so much by everyone and we understand you will have questions – many of which we will not be able to answer yet. We are working on contingency plans and further news will be published in the Paradigm Trust website as it is available.
Chair of the Paradigm Trust Board
Dear parents and carers,
We would like to inform you about the upcoming event which is taking place on Friday 12th of May. We are a group of year 9 students who have been working towards a non-school uniform day to raise money for Cancer Research; we have selected this charity as we feel everyone knows of someone who has been affected by cancer.
Each student can participate by donating a minimum of £1 to the charity.
We very much hope everyone participates as we feel it is a very important cause, and hope this is the start of many more opportunities to work together as a community.
Paradigm Trust is seeking to recruit lead teachers in MFL and science to work in Ipswich Academy.

The booking system is available here.
Individual teacher consultation appointments will take place 4:30-7.30pm. Subject teachers will meet with you and your child on an individual basis to provide clear feedback on your child’s learning. You will also have an opportunity to review your child’s exercise books.
All meetings will take place in the school hall. Booking will be on a first come, first served basis and the booking system is now open. The number of appointments will, initially, be limited to five for each student to ensure that all parents/carers are able to participate. Nearer to the time, if additional appointments are available, we will release these into the booking system and notify you.
In order to login to the system, you will need the following information relating to your child, as held in our database:
- Child’s first name
- Child’s surname
- Child’s date of birth
- Child’s register class (in the form of e.g. 8-1)
You will need to enter the details we have on record for you. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not informed us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record. The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem.
If you do not have access to the Internet, or experience any problems with using the system, please contact the school and ask to speak with Miss Ring.
Students are required to attend, with their parent/carer.
In September 2015 Ipswich Academy became the fourth school to become part of Paradigm Trust. There are a number of vacancies for teachers who are seeking to make a significant contribution. You will need to be open to fresh challenges, have high energy and commitment levels and work to the highest standards. The rewards are excellent, with performance related pay for the best teachers.
Teachers with leadership and management experience, NQTs and subject leads are welcome to get in touch to make an application. We would also like to hear from primary colleagues with experience in key stage 2. Opportunities are also available for paid graduate interns.
If you are excited by the chance to prove yourself, earn more and be part of a successful Trust, please contact us to arrange a meeting to discuss the vacancies. In the first instance email firstname.lastname@example.org.
