Suffolk: New Academy Opens
Suffolk New Academy has opened it's doors today to it's pupils.
The former Chantry High School students in Ipswich will notice a change of colour scheme and be wearing new school uniforms but according to Principal Andrew Fell, the real difference will be in the approach to teaching.
“We are committed to ensuring that our young people will leave Suffolk New Academy ready for the challenges of the 21st Century, not only do we have exciting vocational courses, including modern engineering on offer but we also put a particular emphasis on ensuring that our young people have the skills for their future employment, whatever that may be.”
Suffolk New Academy will also boast improved ICT facilities allowing ‘tablet’ based learning.
"This is an important day in the life of the community in this part of our county town and it offers in many ways a unique learning opportunity for our students,” says Andrew Fell, “in an increasingly competitive jobs market, we will provide our pupils with excellent links to Suffolk New College to help further their education along with helping to bridge a connection to potential employers.”
Young people from Suffolk New Academy helped to create the new logo and design the new school uniform.
Dave Muller, Suffolk New College Principal said, "We are pleased to working in partnership with Suffolk New Academy and to able to continue to develop even stronger working relationships with the south west area of Ipswich and the young people in the area.”
