Ipswich School

Co-educational boarding and day in Ipswich, Suffolk

Ipswich School is the top independent school in Suffolk. A consistently outstanding academic performance is more than matched by one of the best co-curricular programmes in the country; this is a school community with kindness at its core and this makes us a happy, busy and fun school to be at.


We have attractive boarding facilities at Westwood, a Victorian mansion set in wooded grounds about 200 metres from the school campus. We also have a Sixth Form Boarding House at Anglesea Heights - this is a modern attractive space, with ensuite facilities. Our students achieve excellent examination results and progress to the best universities, including Oxbridge and top Russell Group. We believe that a rich and varied co-curricular provision complements an excellent academic education, giving our pupils the opportunity to develop many valuable transferable skills allowing them to realise their full potential.


Most importantly, our students are happy – reaching their potential, supported by outstanding pastoral care and part of our friendly community. We provide an exceptional level of support which is tailored for each pupil and assessed when a child joins the school. Tutors keep a close eye on each individual student to ensure that they balance their activities and are happy and fulfilled.


We are located near the stunning Suffolk coast within 1 hour of London Stansted Airport and within 2 hours of London Heathrow Airport.
