Senior School

Ipswich School has attractive boarding facilities in a Victorian mansion set in wooded grounds, just a 5 minute walk from the main school site. Westwood has a welcoming atmosphere with only 45 boarders, helping maintain the strong family-feel that we’re proud of. We welcome both boys and girls from Year 9 and above and we offer a wonderful opportunity for our small number of boarders to mix with British pupils and to enrich the culture of the school.

Our Head of Boarding lives on site, joined by two other resident tutors. The boarding house is well-resourced with a games room and music practice rooms. We also have one of the school’s astroturf pitches located within the recently restored Westwood gardens.

Weekly boarding is an excellent option for pupils living some distance away and a particularly popular option for sixth formers, providing an opportunity for pupils to experience living away from home before moving on to university. Our boarding provision also provides a safety net should family circumstances change.

We have put together a guide for our boarders and their parents and guardians to explain more about the operation of boarding at Ipswich School.

Sixth Form Boarding at Ipswich School

In addition to Westwood, we have our Sixth Form Boarding House, also within minutes of the main school. This is a modern, newly refurbished house for Sixth Form students with a warm and welcoming lounge, TV room, kitchen, IT suites and music rooms. All rooms in the boarding house have ensuite toilet and shower facilities.
