Ipswich Academy delivers best ever GCSE results

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.

Helen Winn
Principal
