Staff Welcome Students at Ixworth Free School
The headteacher and staff welcomed their new students into Ixworth Free School this week as they mark the start of both a new term and a brand new school. The first two days had a carnival theme to settle students into their new school. Through art, music and dancing students got to know one another and their teachers.
The new school opened on the site of the former middle school which has undergone appropriate refurbishment as well the installation of the latest technology to ensure the school is able to deliver its aim to promote learning through ICT.
Ixworth Free School is the third free school to be opened by the Foundation’s Free Schools Trust and this opening follows a successful two years at both Beccles and Saxmundham Free Schools and very positive Ofsted inspections in the summer term.
Nikola King, head teacher at Ixworth Free School, said: “I am very pleased to be able welcome our students to Ixworth Free School and to welcome all the staff. After many months of planning it is good to be able to start the school term and work as a team to produce a positive educational experience for the young people who have made the positive choice to attend our school. We are confident that numbers will rise through the year as more and more people find out about the high standard of education and pastoral care we will be providing.”
