Senior Curriculum - Academic Excellence Programme

We stretch and challenge our more able students both in the classroom and beyond the curriculum with our Academic Excellence Programme. Various competitions, conferences and seminars are organised departmentally. A lecture series – the Ipswich School Open Lectures – takes place each year and is focused on topics that students find fascinating. Most of the lectures are presented by sixth form students. There is also a weekly ‘Athenaeum’ discussion group led by students which is well attended and seen as a highlight of the week.

Everyone is invited to attend our series of lectures throughout the year which take place at 4.30pm and last around an hour.
