Ipswich Prep School – Offering your child the very best start to their school life

It can be an exciting but somewhat daunting time - the start of your child’s first school years, and choosing the best learning environment for them is an important decision.

Head of Ipswich Prep School, Amanda Childs, believes that ensuring all pupils are happy at the school is undoubtedly her most important role: “One of the main ways we achieve this is that we care deeply about our pupils and aim to give every single one the opportunity to be their best. All the staff here have a passion for teaching and for sharing their passions in other areas as well, and passing on this enthusiasm nurtures potential and really does help ensure we have happy people here.”

Mrs Childs added that education is about forging the right, strong foundations so that children develop a desire for lifelong learning: “The Prep School is all about encouraging children to do well at school and beyond, to enjoy their learning and to grow in themselves, from our youngest girls and boys in the nursery, through to our oldest pupils in Year 6, and then continuing their journey in the Senior School next door.”

Ipswich Prep School has outstanding, purpose-built facilities and also enjoys the use of extensive sporting facilities, green fields and drama and music venues, offered by Ipswich School’s Senior School. Class sizes are small and pupils’ learning is challenging and fun, with a wide range of co-curricular activities to choose from – including clubs such as sewing, cooking, percussion and skiing.  The school prides itself on having a caring school community with an exemplary approach to pastoral care.

The Prep School is open to prospective families later this week, on Thursday 21 April, from 12.30pm to 3pm.  Please call Teresa Ayre on 01473 282800 for more information.  The Senior School will also be open on Thursday morning, with tours at 9.30am and 10.30am.  Bookings for the Senior School can be made via the school website here
