Senior School Admissions

We will help you through every step of the admissions process for the Senior School. We will make sure that you have all the information you need for the important decision you are about to take. Do visit us, to meet our staff and pupils and find out what makes Ipswich School so happy and successful.

Sending our child to Ipswich School is probably one of the best decisions we have ever made.  We have to consider the fee by far the best money we have spent even though it has meant we have had to make sacrifices.
