Preparatory School Entry


Ipswich Prep School is currently accepting registrations for September 2019 entry with a limited number of places available from Nursery to Year 5.

We will be offering Taster and Assessment Days throughout January for children seeking a place in September 2019.

Places for assessment will be allocated upon receipt of formal registration. The Application for Admissions Form can be found at the top of this page. If you wish your son or daughter to attend a Taster and Assessment Day, please complete and return your form and fee to Mrs Kate Frankland, Prep Admissions Manager.

Children will be invited to attend a Taster Day, offering an opportunity to experience a normal school day here at Ipswich Preparatory School. Assessments will take place during their time in School.

For all Prep Admissions queries please contact Mrs Kate Frankland, Prep Admissions Manager on 01473 281302 or email prepadmissions@ipswich.school

Where places are available, we are able to accommodate mid-year entry.

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.
