Year 11 consultation evening

Appointments are available for you to meet with your child’s teachers on Thursday 28th November, 4:30 to 7:30pm. On arrival, you will be given your child’s Autumn mock results.

You are able to book five minute appointment slots for each subject teacher using our electronic booking system. This is accessed here.

Appointments with each teacher will last for five minutes. In order to login to the system, you will need the following information relating to your child, as held in our database:

  • First name
  • Surname

You will also 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.

Subject teachers will meet with you and your child on an individual basis to provide clear feedback on your child ’s learning.

Best ever GCSE results at Ipswich Academy

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.
