Registration Procedure

All parents wishing to register their children for the Preparatory School (including the Nursery) use the same standard form. Application forms can be downloaded (see above) or obtained from the Prep Admissions Manager at the school (Tel: 01473 281302). A non-refundable registration fee of £50 is payable (or £25 where there is a sister or brother already in the school).

Once a child is offered a place in the Prep Nursery, parents will be asked to complete a Form of Acceptance of a Place and pay an Acceptance Fee of £200. Upon payment of this fee, the place is formally reserved and the usual notice periods for withdrawal apply. The Acceptance Fee is refunded at the end of the last term a pupil is in the Nursery.

When a place is offered in the Prep (Reception – Year 6), parents will be asked to complete a Form of Acceptance of a Place and pay an Acceptance Fee of £200. Upon payment of this fee, the place is formally reserved and the usual notice periods for withdrawal apply. The Acceptance Fee is payable only once and is refunded at the end of the last term a pupil is at Ipswich School (including the Senior School).

Before accepting a place for their child, parents are asked to read the Parent Contract and accept the rules and regulations governing their child’s conduct and their own relationship with the school in such matters as payment of fees and requests for absence.

End of Year Virtual Celebration

In July we said farewell to our Year 6 pupils at Ipswich Prep, and congratulations to all of our wonderful children for a fabulous year of achievements with our End of Year Celebration event. Whilst we would normally gather in the marquee on School Field to applaud our prize winners, this year we will had a virtual celebration instead.
