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 Theatre. The first of these talks will commence at 5.15pm and the second at 6.00pm

For the talks, seat tickets and standing tickets for the balcony will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You are advised to arrive in good time for the respective talks to secure a seat. Please ensure that you collect the requisite number of tickets for your preferred talk on arrival. Visitors arriving after all tickets have been allocated for the first talk will be kindly requested to attend the second. Refreshments will be available.


While maps will be provided for all visitors on the days, to assist you in planning your visit you may wish to refer in advance to this campus map.

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.
