Ipswich Academy Opens

One of Ben’s first campaigns was to secure new school buildings for Ipswich Academy- formerly Holywells High School.


The school had suffered in old buildings for too long, and the replacements- often promised- had not been delivered. In 2010, Ben secured the money for a new school, to be built on a new site by Gainsborough Sports Centre, and the new buildings were opened by the education secretary three years later.
