Ipswich Academy Ofsted monitoring inspection report

On 13th September, Ipswich Academy had an Ofsted monitoring inspection visit.   Below is a link to the letter received from the HMI inspector who led the inspection.

Students, staff and parents/carers should be incredibly proud of the comments that are made in the letter.  The progress that has been made is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Ipswich Academy.

The letter is overwhelmingly positive. Here are some of the key messages:

“Senior leaders and the multi-academy trust (MAT) are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement in order for the school to become good.”

“Behaviour has been transformed.  Your school is a calm place where disruption is rare.”

“Relationships between leaders, staff and pupils ensure a highly productive atmosphere for learning and a positive ethos around the school.”

“A consistent approach to the delivery of lessons is apparent across the school.  Year 11 pupils consider this to be one of the major improvements in recent years.”

“You have maintained a broad curriculum at key stage 3 and at key stage 4.  A wide range of courses meet the needs and interests of pupils and enable them to achieve well in their chosen options.”

A copy of the full letter can be found here: Monitoring Letter Oct 18

Ipswich Academy students visit France

On Friday 20th July, Ipswich Academy took four coaches of Year 7 and Year 10 students to Boulogne-sur-Mer in Northern France.  Highlights included a trip to a chocolate factory where students made their own chocolate and a visit to Nausicaa, Europe’s largest sealife centre.

Students ordered food in French, and it was good to see the older students supporting the Year 7s.

Students were very enthusiastic, even at 4am, and their conduct throughout the trip was excellent.  They were a credit to Ipswich Academy and Paradigm Trust.
