Ipswich School is predominantly a day school but we have a small, well established boarding house that can accommodate up to 50 students wishing to board. A majority of our boarding students come from overseas, particularly Hong Kong, China, Russia, Malaysia, mainland Europe (Germany, Belgium etc) and Nigeria, we also have a small number of UK resident boarding students.
Many of our overseas students have gone on to top universities in the UK and to other universities throughout the world.
More details about our boarding facilities are available here. Information about fees, including boarding fees, are available here.
Other useful information includes exam results, term dates and our recent ISI Inspection report. A copy of our prospectus and essential information is available here.
If you are interested in progressing your enquiry, we ask prospective families/students to send us the following details for us to make an initial assessment. We will then confirm whether a formal application should be submitted after reviewing the following:
1) two years’ school reports, with teacher comments if possible
2) Details of hobbies, interests, achievements
3) Comment regarding English language capabilities
