Where are we now?

IPACA is currently taking decisive action to improve the Academy.

Leaders and teachers are currently receiving support from an experienced Executive Headteacher. We are also working closely with Wimborne Teaching Alliance, in Maths, English and Science; colleagues from Wimborne have been working at the Academy since the Autumn Term and this work has already had a positive impact.

IPACA is committed to working with all external support agencies.
