Ipswich School named as top independent school in Suffolk – for the fourth year running

Ipswich School is delighted to be named in this year’s Sunday Times Parent Power report as the top independent school in Suffolk – for the fourth year running, and in the top 150 independent schools in the country.

The report, which ranks schools by their top A Level and GCSE exam grades, was published this weekend (Sunday 24 November 2019).  It showed that Ipswich School had climbed from 163rd to 149th in the country this year taking it into the top 150; it is also at number seven in the East Anglian independent schools’ top ten. http://thesundaytimes.co.uk/parentpower

Nicholas Weaver, Headmaster of Ipswich School, said: “This year’s Parent Power report firmly cements Ipswich School’s place as the top independent school in Suffolk. We have good-sized year groups, not a just handful of pupils, and so this really is testament to the hours of hard work put in by all our students and staff to achieve the best results possible. To see the school reach the top 150 of independent schools nationally is just the icing on the cake, and we hope this will provide a boost to the town of Ipswich itself as well.”

He added: “Although the Sunday Times tables are based on exam results, we have achieved this success alongside other great achievements in national sport competitions, superb music and drama performances and a wealth of co-curricular activity. This, along with our exemplary approach to pastoral care, is what makes us so successful and which ensures that our pupils are the best prepared for the world beyond school.”

Ipswich School is holding entrance examinations in January for pupils who are interested in joining the school in September 2020.  Full details are available on the school’s website: www.ipswich.school/senioradmissions.  A range of scholarships and bursaries are available to assist families.
