Working at Ipswich School

Why Ipswich?  Why Ipswich School?  Benefits  Testimonials  Apply


Ipswich School is a place where employees – whether teachers or support staff – feel comfortable very quickly.  Our success is based on their passion.  This could be the contagious effect of a teacher in the classroom, or the way a coach inspires a team on the sports field.  Or it might be the way our Estates Team looks after school facilities, the care our Catering Team put into the amazing school meals or the attention that our clerical staff put into that all-important administrative work which underpins daily life at school.

Amanda Childs

Head of Prep School

The Prep is in many ways a second family.  Colleagues really do care for each other.  Everyone is part of a much bigger network, support is always there and everyone is doing their best for the good of the children.  This creates a wonderfully positive – and fun – atmosphere which makes working at the Prep very special.

Pupils consistently achieve at all levels well beyond those expected of their age.
