Your future begins here

A broad curriculum; an exciting co-curriculum

We offer a broad curriculum that allows pupils to study a range of subjects at GCSE, but we also appreciate the need for flexibility.

Our extensive co-curricular programme widens pupils’ experience, aids their learning and gives them a great time at school.


Academic success has to be underpinned by attention to the whole person and our pastoral care is strongly committed to this approach.

Middle School (Years 9 – 11)

The Middle School covers Years 9, 10 and 11. Pupils are placed in House-based tutor groups and are taught by subject specialists in all lessons.

Senior School Admissions

Our Senior Admissions Manager, Mrs Laura Trainer, can arrange a tour of the Senior School and a meeting with the Headmaster, Nicholas Weaver. She can guide you through the admissions process and also explain our entry requirements.

Co-Curricular Programme

Our co-curricular programme complements what happens in lessons and provides a thoroughly enjoyable break from academic work and an opportunity for pupils to express themselves in different ways.

International Admissions

Westwood, Ipswich School’s boarding house, is a Victorian mansion set in wooded grounds, just a 5 minute walk from the main school site.
