Development – About us

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 and we are indebted to a long list of benefactors who 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’, in our last Educational Quality Inspection. We are pleased to have maintained our position in The Sunday Times Parent Power tables as the leading Independent School in Suffolk.

Ipswich School has no permanent endowment to support our financial needs and ambitions. We rely upon the generosity of the School community to fund projects and for this we are hugely grateful. It is our vision to build an endowment to offer more life-changing opportunities to children, regardless of their family’s financial background.  

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.
