Students excel in English and Maths at Ipswich Academy

Results for students achieving between a grade 9 and 4 in English and Maths at Ipswich Academy is 62%, despite an unprecedented final year due to the coronavirus lockdown.  They will officially receive their results in school from 9am this morning.

Abbie Thorrington, Principal at Ipswich Academy says:

“All the staff at Ipswich Academy want to say a big thank you to our year 11 students, their families and our wonderfully supportive community today.   Navigating such an important year in their education through the coronavirus lockdown has been testing for all of us but their hard work, strength and resilience is demonstrated by the results today.  They have all been amazing, we are incredibly proud and will continue to support them as they move into the further education of their choice.”

In line with Government policy, due to the coronavirus lockdown, GCSE grades have been awarded by the school with the support of the official exam regulator Ofqual. Year 11 students have been learning remotely with support from Ipswich Academy and their teachers since schools closed on 20th March.  

Ipswich Academy was rated Good by Ofsted with Outstanding for leadership and management last year.  The Ofsted report recognised that the 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.
