Hot on the heels of winning a national award from Muddy Stilettos for its Sixth Form provision, Ipswich School has been shortlisted in six categories in the national Independent School of the Year awards.
The school has been shortlisted for the following:

- Independent Prep School of the Year
- Independent Pre-Prep School of the Year
- Independent School of the Year for Sporting Achievement
- Independent School of the Year for Performing Arts (Music & Drama)

Headmaster Nicholas Weaver said: “We are simply delighted to have been shortlisted for so many different aspects of our school, from the youngest children in the Prep School to our creative provision for music and sport. It is a testament to the broad education we offer our pupils, both in the classroom and outside in our co-curricular activities and a credit to the hard work and dedication of our pupils and staff.”
The Muddy Stilettos award recognised the strong sense of community in the Ipswich School sixth form, encouraging leadership, developing organisational skills and nurturing passions. Ipswich School was also highly commended for ‘originality in teaching music and the arts’ and the Prep School was highly commended for its early years work – ‘creative learning through play’.
The Independent School of the Year award finalists will be announced in September, with winners chosen by an independent panel of expert judges and announced in October.
