That is the essence of an Ipswich School education.

Your future begins here

Note from the Headmaster

We are very proud of our academic success which is one of the key features of Ipswich School.  Our pupils realise their potential. By the time children leave the Prep School they are generally about a year above national expectations, with some working considerably higher than this.  In the Senior School our GCSE and A Level results are outstanding and we are normally at the top of local results tables.

Choosing a school is probably one of the hardest decisions parents have to make.  Whether you know Ipswich School already, or perhaps are choosing an independent school for the first time, we firmly believe that we create extraordinary futures for all our pupils.
