In addition, I have admitted a number of new students into Years 7&8 and have several tours booked for next week with Year 4 and 5 students.

I will lead the team of the newly appointed Cross-Trust Assistant Headteachers from Saxmundham and Beccles and they will be spending time here at Ixworth supporting and working with a variety of staff. I will update you further on this in the forthcoming weeks and have included their photos in this week’s family bulletin…more
