The Journey of ESSA Academy

Children at Bolton’s new Essa Academy are achieving spectacular results, rolling back years of under achievement in their deprived community. The proportion of pupils with five or more A* to C grades in GCSE exams has risen from 55% to 99.5% in just two years. School inspectors say they have rarely seen such rapid improvement.

Essa’s Principal, Showk Badat, puts the iPod touch at the heart of the children’s success. “The iPod touch is a really motivational tool, empowering each child to explore his or her personal creativity and learning potential. It has done the most remarkable thing: removed the limits to learning”.
