At Culford’s Football Academy, pupils combine academic aspiration with their footballing ambitions through our holistic approach to the academic, athletic, and personal development of each individual.

Delivered in partnership with Ipswich Town Football Club Academy, pupils receive annual individual development plans designed specifically by the Director of Football. This individualised approach will open pathways into the professional/semi-professional game and opportunities for scholarships to universities in the United States.

Culford’s Football Academy will be led by former Republic of Ireland international Alan Lee who has 20 years of experience as a professional player. A leading coach at ITFC, he is a UEFA ‘A’ & FA Advanced Youth Licensed coach who is committed to supporting aspiring footballers within education.

Culford Sixth Form drama pupils wrote and performed their own original piece of drama to a packed studio theatre.

The dynamic piece of theatre, entitled ‘I am no bird’, was inspired by the National Theatre’s version of ‘Jane Eyre and explored the struggles that Charlotte Bronte faced as a female author in the mid 1800s. The performance also drew clever parallels with Emily Jackson, who was unlawfully imprisoned by her husband in the 19th Century.

The contemporary play, featuring underscoring, minimalist staging and episodic structure, fused naturalistic drama and physical theatre that both shocked and educated.

Culford School Director of Drama Maria Jackson said: “What resulted was a complex and fast paced piece, which posed the question, ‘Is Bronte free in a patriarchal society, or is she too imprisoned by expectation and ultimately by her own characters?’”

The ensemble, featuring Lucy Mason as Charlotte Bronte, Emily Hope as Emily Jackson, Cayman Evans as Edmund Jackson, Henry Jackson-Wells as Rochester, Charlotte Anderson as Jane Eyre, and Holly Pym as Bertha Mason, delivered captivating and moving performances that inspired and delighted a packed, appreciative audience.

The performance will be repeated on Speech Day, Saturday 26 May at 14:30.

Culford School's Sixth Form pupils gained a rare insight into the University-level learning experience when they took a lecture with esteemed lecturer and biologist Dr Guy Sutton.

Dr Sutton, the Director of MBI Consultancy and an Honorary lecturer at the University of Nottingham, delivered an address on disease. In a wide ranging talk, Dr Sutton spoke in depth about gene mutations, the affect of disease upon the human body and how modern living is playing a negative affect upon health.

Culford’s Head of Biology, Adrian Fisk said: “This was a stimulating and thought provoking series of talks taking pupils’ knowledge beyond that of their exam specifications on matters of health and disease which we are all interested in.” #inspiringindividuals

Prep School pupils, together with the Parent Association, have been collecting food for a local charity. The efforts were in support of Gatehouse, which supports the vulnerable in our community. The response from parents and pupils has been extraordinary, and the food will benefit the charity’s food bank and the many people who are in need. Thank you to all those who supported this worthwhile cause.

Culford recognised as top school for tennis in UK

Culford School has retained its top co-educational tennis school ranking for the second year in a row by the Lawn Tennis Association.

The school has been recognised as the top school for boys and the second best school for girls.

The announcement comes after school teams finished runners-up at the national tennis finals in Bolton this weekend.

On route to the final, the boys defeated Repton 12-0 and Merchiston Castle 8-4. The girls’ team beat Manchester Grammar School 8-4 and Leicester 12-0.
On finals Sunday, the boys narrowly lost 4-2 to Bournemouth with Harry Wendelken and Luke Watson edged out on a tie-break in the final match. The girls battled hard in their game but lost 6-0 to a very strong Talbot Heath side.
2017 has also seen the U18 boys crowned national champions and the U18 girls finished in third place.

Head of School and Community Tennis, David Hall said: “All players were magnificent all weekend and should be very proud of their performances. To finish second in the national finals, which involves state and independent schools from across Great Britain, is a great achievement.”
