Welcome to Ipswich Academy

Welcome to Ipswich Academy!

Our students have an excellent work ethic, a real interest in their studies and ambitious aspirations for the future. Our high standards give our students every opportunity to be successful.

We are clear about our vision; we are clear about how we are going to achieve this; and we are very clear that we want parents/carers to work with us. We believe that great communication and support between parents/carers and our staff is key to a child’s successful school experience.


It’s important that your child attends school every day and on time. Every day matters, every minute counts.


We are an inclusive school, which means that we feel that every child should be able to participate in every aspect of school life with a sense of belonging and a sense of being valued.

We do this by using a nurturing approach and through activities which promote social skills and emotional development, all within a safe, affirming and consistent environment.

Our SENCOs are Lauren Hague and Joanne Adams, who can be contacted by calling  Ipswich Academy reception.

Excellence in Pupil Development Award (EPDA)

As a school, we are always looking to review and improve a range of aspects of our provision to improve students’ personal development and skills. As such, we are embarking on an awards scheme that will accredit us with an award that recognises our approach to provide students with the personal skills and knowledge which will help them throughout their time at Ipswich academy and beyond.

You can read more about the EPDA scheme here: https://www.awardplace.co.uk/award/epda.
