What the school says...
At Ipswich School we offer our pupils a supportive environment that encourages them to enjoy learning, grow in self-confidence and acquire a wide range of worthwhile interests. We believe that school should be a happy place where pupils receive a broad education that fires their imagination and develops their personality. Our curriculum provides a learning environment where pupils develop their skills and personal qualities so they can move onto the Senior School as confident individuals. We aim to foster a love of learning that will last a life time.
The School has a great deal to offer our pupils in art, music, drama and sport. The enthusiasm for these is evident. Our co-curricular activities encourage the children to experience something new and widen their horizons.
From Nursery through to Year 6, you will find a caring atmosphere where the children are valued for who they are. Everyones happiness is considered essential in order for the children to make the most of the high quality education and wide range of opportunities. Life at Ipswich Preparatory School is challenging and fun. ...Read more
