Monday 16 April 2018 is National Offer day where parents will find out if they have secured a place in reception at the primary school of their choice. This is a hugely important – and also a little bit scary – time for parents as their children go off to ‘big school’ for the first time. It is the start of your child’s first school years and choosing the right, supportive learning environment for them is an important decision.
It is a time of excitement for many but also disappointment if your child did not get in to your first choice school. However there are always options available. It is not too late to consider a place at an independent school.
At Ipswich Preparatory School we have lots of enquiries by parents looking for an Early Years place at school. At Ipswich Prep, 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. Pupils also have the opportunity to learn new subjects, including Russian and Latin, that they have the chance of studying in the Senior School.
The school prides itself on having a caring school community with an exemplary approach to pastoral care. We have purpose-built facilities, green fields and the best in sport, drama and music venues. We provide after school care with a range of pick up times available, making things a bit easier for busy parents. We also have buses bringing pupils to the school from across Suffolk and North-East Essex for those who live a little further away.
Why not come along to our Spring Open Day, which is taking place on Thursday 19 April 2018 which provides a fantastic opportunity to see what a typical school day is like. The Prep School (Nursery-Year 6) is open 12.30pm-3.00pm.
Ipswich Prep School currently has places available from Nursery to Year 5. Please contact Mrs Kate Frankland, Prep Admissions Manager, for further information: 01473 281302, firstname.lastname@example.org
