Welcome to Holbrook Academy

Welcome to Holbrook Academy.  Our aim is to help every child make the maximum possible progress – both in academic terms and as a developing individual.

Our exam results and Ofsted inspection reports speak for themselves. You can find details of these and much more elsewhere on this website.

The secret of our success is a focus on the individual needs of every child.  This is only achieved through hard work and determination but we are helped by our relatively small size and long history of good relations with the community we serve.

If you would like to see for yourself, we run regular open mornings and evenings and are happy to make special arrangements.  If you would like to do that, or for any other enquiry, please contact Sarah Beazley, PA to the Headteacher.

    The Civvies Day and cake sales on 24th March raised £444 for Comic Relief. Thank you to everyone who supported this.


    National School Performance Tables published in the Times newspaper on 21st January 2017 placed Holbrook Academy sixth in the County of Suffolk on the basis of our 2016 results. This is the highest ranking in the school’s history.

    A number of complaints have been received by Holbrook Parish Council regarding dangerous and inconsiderate parking in Clench Road and on Ipswich Road at the start and end of the school day. Local residents are mainly concerned about the blocking of their driveways and where drivers are parking partially on the pavement near the tight bend opposite Berners Field, forcing other road users into the centre of the road.

    We would be grateful if parents/carers could be aware of these concerns and, in the interests of safety, avoid such practices in the future.


    We are delighted to report another set of outstanding GCSE results. 69% of students achieved the ‘old’ measure of five or more A*-C grades including Maths and English and 73% achieved A*-C grades in Maths and English.  The most satisfying statistic is that using the new government ‘Progress 8’ performance measure which will apply this year to all schools, we achieved an outcome of +0.25.
