Thursday afternoon activities

The emphasis that Ipswich School places on personal as well as academic development is what makes us stand out from the crowd. Thursday afternoon offers an opportunity for pupils in Years 9-13 to participate in a variety of activities outside the classroom.  This encourages each pupil to develop their current interests and explore new ones. In Years 10 and 11 the focus is on offering service; this can be undertaken in Ipswich School’s Combined Cadet Force or in one of the many Community service options listed here:
