Welcome to Ibstock Place School

Arrangements for visitors to Sixth Form Open Evening on Tuesday 27 September (External prospective applicants and their parents)

We look forward to welcoming pre-booked visitors attending the forthcoming Sixth Form Open Evening on Tuesday 27 September.

Where arriving by car, we recommend parking on Bank Lane, or environs. Please make your way on foot to the Theatre Gate on Danebury Avenue. The gate will open from 4.45pm. (Please note that the Richmond Park car park adjacent to Roehampton Gate closes at 6.45pm, which means that it will not be suitable to use for parking on this occasion.) 

The Evening will begin with a short welcome given by Mr Christopher Wolsey, the Head of Sixth Form, followed by a tour of the School. Visitors will then join a presentation on the Sixth Form given by Mr Wolsey in the Theatre, and have the opportunity to meet Heads of Faculty and subject teachers.

Refreshments will be available in the foyer during the Open Evening.

School has a Bicycle Park which visitors arriving by cycle are welcome to use.


Here is the campus map.

Prep School Open Morning, Wednesday 28 September 2016

We very much look forward to welcoming those prospective parents who have pre-booked to attend the Pre-Prep and Prep School Open Morning on Wednesday 28 September. The event begins with a meeting addressed by the Headmistress held at 9.30am in the Theatre. Visitors should arrive at the Theatre Gate on Danebury Avenue (close to the junction with Priory Lane). This will be open from 9.00am. Please consult this map for further guidance.

Please note that there will be no parking on site, including in our small Visitors' Car Park on Clarence Lane, on this occasion. If arriving by car, visitors may choose to combine their visit to School with the opportunity to enjoy Richmond Park. If this is the case, we recommend parking in the Richmond Park car park adjacent to Roehampton Gate. School is just a short walk away.

Pushchairs and Dogs

Due to Health and Safety reasons dogs are not allowed anywhere on the School grounds.

We regret we are also unable to accommodate children's pushchairs within School buildings due to the need for infection control. Visitors bringing pushchairs onto the campus will be requested to leave them outside the Theatre or other School buildings.

The Headmistress Welcome to Ibstock Place School and we do hope that this website provides you with a flavour of our distinctive and successful School. In saying that, nothing compares with a visit, so we do encourage you most warmly to arrange an appointment to visit the School during one of the Open Days and Events. Visits may be organised by completing the online form on our Request to attend an Open Day page, or by emailing or telephoning the Registrar. You may also find it useful to consult the Admissions Information Guide 2016-2017.

Let me say that Ibstock Place School has a passionate belief in all pupils receiving a challenging and inspirational education: the enthusiastic and ambitious staff attach great importance to the development of pupils’ individuality and their having regard for tolerance, courtesy and respect. IPS pupils are able to find their strengths whether it is becoming the promising musician, the meticulous scholar, the outstanding sportsman or the talented artist. The School sees its responsibility as ensuring that the accomplishments of our pupils reflect their talents and interests and as they leave Ibstock Place School they do so as creative, resilient and empathetic adults.

We look forward to meeting you in the future.
