Ipswich School Sixth Form wins in the Best Schools Awards 2022

Ipswich School is delighted that the Sixth Form has received national recognition, winning this year’s Muddy Stilettos ‘Special Sixth Form’ award category.

It was recognised that Ipswich School students feel a strong sense of community and that the pupil voice has a valued role in the school. Our entry explained about the Call it Out programme which was started in the Sixth Form to complement the school’s pastoral systems, and the podcast series, Conversations with Ipswich School, which involves Sixth Formers talking to Old Ipswichians about shared interests. The extensive clubs and activities programme was also seen to play an important part in encouraging leadership, developing organisational skills and nurturing passions.

Head of Sixth Form, Mr Ben Cliff, said: “We are so proud to have won this award. It is a big thumbs up to the passion our students have for making a difference in their own school community and beyond. Their voice is loud, and their achievements rich and varied.  I love working with a group of people who care about each other, about change and about the legacy they leave for younger years.  Through the toughest of times they have shown resilience, compassion and innovation, and I am delighted to see that their efforts have been recognised.  Well done team!”

In addition, Ipswich School was highly commended in the awards, which showcase the best independent schools in the country, for ‘originality in teaching music and the arts’ and the Prep School for its early years work ‘creative learning through play’.
