We were delighted to welcome the Mayor, Gordon Oliver to Ilsham this week!

Mr Oliver met with Mrs Atkinson, Mrs Bone and Miss Cleverly and some of our Monkey Puzzles!

James, Sophie, Olivia, Oscar and Isabel put him in the hot seat grilling him about what it meant to be Mayor and what the job entailed.

They also shared with him why they love learning at the Learning Academy Partnership and the benefits of working Collaboratively as well as celebrating the rich curriculum that they experience.  We only wished that they had their notepads at the ready as the Mayor shared with them lots of information about Torquay during the war and, in this special centenary year, they are learning all about the war in preparation for a very special Remembrance Day Service this year.

We are delighted to have been awarded our Silver Mark in conjuction with the Sainsbury's School Games initiative following London 2012.

The Sainsbury's Games Mark is a Government led award scheme to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.  As well as an opportunity for more young people to actively engage in competitive sport, the Sainsbury's School Games can provide advice and resources for wider impact across the curriculum.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Ilsham Church of England Academy website.

Ilsham Church of England Academy is situated in the heart of Wellswood ‘Village’ approximately one mile from Torquay Harbour. The academy was built in 1871 and has grown in size and popularity, now accommodating 175 pupils aged between 4 and 11. We are very proud of the close relationship that we have with the local community and our local church, St Matthias.

We consider our academy to be like a big family. Parents and visitors to our academy often comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere. We aim for every child to have a happy and active primary education in an environment that is caring and supporting. We aim to provide a stimulating and structured environment concerned with the moral, academic, social and spiritual education in which all children are encouraged to reach their full potential.

Education is best achieved by means of a partnership between parent, child and academy. It is with your help and co-operation that this full potential can be met. Our primary school years lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning and we work hard to foster the vital partnership between home and school.

We want Ilsham Academy to be an environment where all can feel happy and confident to contribute and aspire to achieving high educational standards.

Only in such an ethos can a child take their place and produce his/her best.

This website is designed to give you a glimpse of the range of opportunities available at the academy as well as an insight into the things we consider important in the education of our children. It is packed with information that parents/guardians need to know. If you are a prospective parent looking for an admission place for your child, I would be delighted if you would come along to meet us in person and look around the academy.

 I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

 Yours sincerely

 Mrs L Atkinson

 Executive Headteacher
