Sport at Ipswich School

Ipswich School aims to create an environment that instills passion in sport. We have superb sporting venues at Henley Road, Westwood and Notcutts. In 2015 we opened Ipswich School Sports Centre at Rushmere (ISSC), a multi-million pound training venue offering first class sports and events facilities. Read more about girls' cricket, boys' cricket, girls' hockey, boys' hockey, rugby, netball, and athletics.

Sport is very much at the core of what Ipswich School is about, and for many of our pupils it has become a passion.

We are involved in a wide range of sports, the main ones being rugby, football, hockey, cricket, netball, rounders, tennis, athletics, sailing and fives. We also have teams representing the school in show jumping, cross country, golf and gymnastics among others. 

We have three main sports sites in addition to those on the school premises at Henley Road.

Ipswich School Sports Centre, Rushmere - IP5 1DE
There are three brand new hockey pitches at Ipswich School Sports Centre, Rushmere. Two are in the Olympic blue/pink colours and one is in green. There are also six netball courts which convert to tennis courts. Two hockey pitches and four netball courts will be floodlit. All of this will make Ipswich School Sports Centre one of the best school hockey and netball facilities in the country.

Notcutts - IP1 4NR
Extensive grounds with rugby, football, cricket and rounders pitches and a grass athletics track

Westwood - IP1 3RH
The boarding house has a hockey pitch which converts to tennis courts in the summer

Our sports programme aims to encourage enjoyment with a sense of purpose.
