I am delighted to introduce you to Isaac Newton Academy, a brand new, purpose-built, all-through school for students aged 4-18 in Ilford. Our prospectus should give you a flavour of this exciting educational opportunity for your son or daughter. I would also encourage you to browse our website and/or to arrange to visit us to find out more.

Isaac Newton Academy Secondary is a non-denominational, non-selective school, welcoming girls and boys from all backgrounds from the local community. The school opened with just 180 Year 7 students in September 2012. The secondary school has grown year on year and we now have 1200 11–18 year olds (including 250 students in the 6th form). In September 2014, Isaac Newton Academy opened a three-form entry primary school in purpose-built accommodation right next to the secondary academy. There are 90 children in each year group and, like the secondary school, it is growing a year group at a time. We currently have children in Reception through to Year 5.

I joined the academy as Vice Principal prior to its opening and helped shape its vision and values. I am committed to providing an inspirational and life-enhancing educational experience for all the young people who attend the academy. Our staff work tirelessly to ensure that each and every student is supported and stretched to reach their full potential.  We focus on developing students’ knowledge, character and learning power to enable them to achieve the highest academic success, whilst enabling them to grow into exceptional young people.

In October 2018 the school was judged by Ofsted to be outstanding in all areas. Our first three GCSE cohorts performed exceptionally well, placing us amongst the top performing schools in the UK.  However, there is no room for complacency at INA; we continually strive to become better.

I very much look forward to meeting you and to working with you and your sons and daughters to continue building a truly great school.

Jo Spencer

Interim Principal
