If you have not yet registered for Wednesday 6 May but wish to attend, please follow Request to attend an Open Day and kindly complete and submit the online form.

Arriving

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 experiencing the spring delights of Richmond Park. If this is the case, we recommend parking in the Richmond Park car park which is 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

The Headmistress will give two introductory talks in the Conservatory, the first commencing at 5.15pm and the second at 6.00pm. Seats will be allocated by ticket on a first come first served basis and you are advised to arrive in good time to secure a seat. Please ensure that you collect the requisite number of seat tickets for your preferred talk on arrival. Visitors arriving after all tickets have been allocated for the first talk (and any limited, additional standing room taken up) will be kindly requested to attend the second. Refreshments will be available on the Orchard (or from the Refectory if the weather is inclement) from 4.30pm.

Map

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.

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 Danebury Avenue 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.

Prep School Open Morning

We shall be hosting the next Prep School Open Morning at 9.30am on Wednesday 10 June. Please complete and submit the online booking form if you would like to attend.


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 that remain in the current year 2014-2015 or during the year ahead 2015-2016. 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 2015-2016.

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.
