Key Information


Everyone can remember a teacher who inspired them and who passed on a passion for their subject or activity. This enthusiasm can endure and inspire for a lifetime.

At Ipswich School we look for teachers who have something special about them; we recruit those who have something extra to offer, who are enthused about their teaching and their subject and are just as keen to enthuse others.

We have highly experienced, skilled and qualified teachers – a significant number have masters degrees, doctorates or other additional qualifications. Many are examiners, authors, and experts in their field.

We have great story tellers and explainers; great musicians and actors; great linguists and scientists; great mathematicians and great geographers; great sports coaches and artists. And all our teachers strive to be great communicators – a skill we are constantly developing

The contagious effect of their passion is evident in the many letters of thanks received each year.

“I can’t thank you enough for your exceptional teaching…”

“Sending our son to Ipswich School is probably one of the best decisions we have ever made. We have to consider the fee by far the best money that we have spent even though it has meant we have had to make sacrifices.”

“It’s often said that it’s the subject matter not the teacher that gets people interested in a subject. For me, it was wholly the teacher…you have been an inspiration and you’ve always pushed me to do my best.”

Passion fuels pupils at Ipswich School.
