Year 11 is now in full flow and the first mocks are fast approaching, taking place from Monday 14th October to Friday 1st November 2019. At Ipswich Academy we want to ensure students have the best possible opportunity to succeed and strongly believe talking face to face with you is the best way to provide this support.
To facilitate this, we are warmly inviting you and your son/daughter to the year 11 progress evening with hot supper from 6:00pm to 7:30pm on Thursday 10th October 2019.
The programme for the evening commences with a welcoming talk from the Principal and I providing you with an overview of what to expect during year 11. The core subject teams will also be presenting information on their subject areas including effective revision techniques, use of the year 11 study area and resources.
We very much look forward to seeing you on Thursday 10th October 2019.
If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me at school.

Results for students achieving between a grade 9 and 4 in English and Maths is 56%, up 12% on 2018. 19 students achieved the top grade 9 across a host of subjects including English, maths, languages, art and science.
Helen Winn, Principal at Ipswich Academy says:
“Ipswich Academy is incredibly proud of its year 11 students today. We have never had better results in the history of the school and it rounds off what has been an absolutely brilliant year for Ipswich Academy. All our staff work exceptionally hard to narrow the gap for disadvantaged children and these results are evidence that it’s paying off.”
Ipswich Academy achieved an Ofsted Good rating this year with Outstanding for leadership and management for the first time, making it one of the best in town.
The Ofsted report recognised that Helen and the other leaders in the school had ‘transformed the culture of the school’ and were ‘building strong and effective partnerships with the community’ ensuring pupils and their families have the best possible experience at Ipswich Academy, an achievement that has led to the school being oversubscribed for places in September 2019.
GCSE results will be available for collection from 10:00 on Thursday 22nd August. If you would like someone to collect results on your behalf, you will need to provide written permission, and they will need photographic ID.
