Our Vision

Founding Futures – Our Vision

We want Ipswich School to be able to welcome any child based solely on merit, potential and passion – whether or not their families can afford to pay. 

But unlike many other Independent schools, Ipswich does not have a large endowment providing bursaries to support children in the School. Every year we have to turn away deserving children with the potential to benefit from our outstanding educational and co-curricular opportunities. 

We don’t want to turn these children away. We want to say yes to every deserving family that applies for financial help.

We want to attract the best and the brightest, regardless of means, and to make an impact on social mobility within our community.

To do these things, we need such an endowment. And the time to start building it is now.

Founding Futures – Our Target

Founding Futures is the most ambitious fundraising campaign Ipswich School has ever launched. Now, more than ever, we need the Ipswich School community to come together to help bring this dream to fruition and transform the lives of young people for decades to come. 

Through Founding Futures, we will not only immediately begin supporting children in their educational journey, but will also start to build an endowment that will resonate for years to come. 

Join us in giving this gift to future generations of Suffolk children – the gift of a first-class education in outstanding surroundings; the gift of a foundation for future success.

“We need your help to fully fund at least 25 children into the School on 100% bursaries by 2025, and to endow another five funded places in
perpetuity by 2030.”
