Ipswich Academy has just received the best results for Year 11 in its history, following on from last year’s academic success.
Helen Winn, Principal of Ipswich Academy, and her team would like to invite Year 6 students and their parents/carers to attend an open evening on Thursday 5th October between 18.30 – 20.00 to see the exciting prospects the academy can offer.

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.
Year 11 results information
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.

Update on plans to celebrate Amanda Phillips’ life
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.
News on Amanda Phillips
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
