Ibstock Place School

Welcome to Ibstock Place School

TES Senior School of the Year Awards

We were proud to be among the shortlisted group of just eight schools nationally for the Senior School of the Year TES Independent School Awards 2018. Alongside Brighton College, King Edward’s School, Birmingham, King’s High School, Warwick, Latymer Upper School, Leicester Grammar School, Notre Dame Senior School and Reigate Grammar School we were in excellent company; worthy recognition of the remarkable trajectory of Ibstock Place School over recent years. The last to be presented of the category awards at the Awards Night at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 8 February, there was great anticipation as compère Gyles Brandreth introduced the final presentation. Although it wasn't to be our year, our heads remained held high.


Headmistress's Welcome

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. Please refer to the Admissions Guide for Entry in September 2018 for guidance on the separate processes of admission to the Prep School, the Senior School, and to the Sixth Form, including key dates.

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.
