We were delighted to welcome Councillor Elizabeth Hughes, Mayor, along with a range of other distinguished guests from the local community, Ormiston Academies Trust and the contractors for the build, Wates, to our Grand Opening Ceremony.
During the event our guests were treated to a 3 course selection of canapes, all prepared and served by our amazing catering students.
Josh and Amy, who lead our student body, spoke of the impact the new building is having on our students, and Nick Hudson, CEO of Ormiston Academies Trust, and the Mayor of Ipswich spoke of the transformational impact of both the building and the developments within the Academy.
It was fantastic to see so many members of the local community take up the invitation to look around the new facilities following the official opening. Visitors to the Academy shared with us their thoughts:
"Excellent - Super Impressed"
"Very impressed with the facilities"
"I think the new building looks amazing"
