Welcome to Ibstock Place School

Arrangements for visitors to Senior School Open Morning, Saturday 20 September 9.00am-12.00noon

We look forward to welcoming prospective parents and children attending the forthcoming Senior School Open Morning on Saturday 20 September. There is no need to pre-register to attend.


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

Where arriving by car, visitors may wish to take the opportunity to combine their visit to School with an experience of the autumnal delights of 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. Please make your way along Danebury Avenue on foot and in through the gate nearest Roberts Hall.

Alternatively, you may prefer to park in nearby Bank Lane, entering School on foot through the Main Gate on Clarence Lane to reach Main Reception.

Please note that there will be no parking on site, including in our small Visitors Car Park on Clarence Lane.

The Headmistress’ introductory meetings

On Saturday 20 September there will be two introductory meetings, the first at 9.30am and the second at 10.30am, in the Conservatory. Visitors arriving after the start of the first meeting will be requested to attend the second.


While maps will be provided for all visitors on the day, to assist you in planning your visit you may wish to refer in advance to this campus map. Refreshments will be available in the Refectory from 9.00am.

Prep School Open Morning

We shall be hosting a Prep School Open Morning from 9.30am on Wednesday 24 September. Please complete and submit the online booking form if you would like to attend.

Sixth Form Open Evening

We shall be hosting a Sixth Form Open Evening from 6.00pm-8.00pm on Thursday 25 September. Please complete and submit the online booking form if you would like to attend. Please note that parents of current PVI pupils are not required to book for this event as places are already reserved for you.

Buggies 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 buggies within School buildings due to the need for infection control. Visitors bringing buggies onto the campus will be requested to leave them outside Main Reception or by the Pre-Prep School Gate and do so at their own risk. School is unable to accept responsibility for loss or damage to buggies while left on the campus.

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 our 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.

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.
