The Development Office at Ipswich School is designed to support the school in its aim of providing pupils with an outstanding educational experience. It plays a vital role in growing and maintaining links with the wider Ipswich School community whose support we so greatly value and appreciate.
Throughout its 600 plus year history the school has faced many challenges, particularly financial, and we are indebted to a long list of benefactors as well as former and current parents whose fees have helped provide the wonderful facilities and educational opportunities we enjoy. We are proud of our achievements, and were delighted to record an Inspection verdict of ‘excellent in all areas’ last year.
Ipswich School has no permanent endowment to support our financial needs and ambitions. We rely upon fees and the generosity of parents, alumni and members of the wider School community to fund projects and for this we are hugely grateful. In the longer term, our vision is to offer the life-changing opportunity of an Ipswich School education more widely, moving towards a needs-blind entry. Alongside this we will continue to support the provision of resources of the highest standard to maintain the school’s position as the premier school of choice in the area.
