Encouraging independence, building futures

Our pupils realise their potential.  It might be academically.  It could just as easily be in sport, music or drama. Or in one of the many activities we offer from the Prep right up to the Sixth Form.  Whatever they do, they will flourish at Ipswich School.

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.
