About Sybil Andrews Academy
Located in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, Sybil St Andrews Academy is an extremely modern secondary academy, part of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust. The school only opened in January 2017, on a brand new purpose-built site. Although a secondary school, Sybil Andrews Academy will not post its first set of GCSE results until 2019, with its first Ofsted inspection taking place in 2020. The school has a capacity for around 600 students aged 11-16, making it smaller than the average secondary school. As a newly-built academy, the school can boast of a range of modern facilities, including a 4G football pitch, gym, dance studios as well as extensive science and technology facilities.
