At Ixworth, we believe that each and every student deserves to go to an excellent School. Our focus is on delivering high quality, engaging lessons and providing students with the care and guidance that allows them to succeed. Our students tell us that they value the way lessons are delivered and the strong relationships that exist in School between students and staff. This is only possible because of our small size and our belief and confidence in every student as an individual.

We offer a traditional curriculum that enables our students to flourish academically and which lays the foundations for their successful progression into post-16 learning. We are preparing our young people to be thoughtful, innovative, capable, responsible global citizens of the future; they will leave us with excellent qualifications and having outperformed their counterparts nationally.

I trust the School and its leadership.
