Ibstock Place School

Our School

Ibstock Place School is an independent co-educational day school for pupils aged 4 to 18, providing a rich variety of opportunity in a friendly, supportive atmosphere with a strong family ethos.

Our School is on the edge of Richmond Park in south west London. We are academically strong and our pupils perform very impressively in public examinations. Our pupils’ GCSE and (I)GCSE results for 2014 were record-breaking. 82% of all GCSE and (I)GCSE entries were graded at A* or A, up from 77% in 2013.

Our pupils' GCE A Level and Pre-U results produced 59% of grades at A* or A, and 88.9% of all examination entries graded at A*-B. On the strength of these results, three of our pupils take up places at Oxbridge this autumn to read English Literature, Mathematics (Oxford), and Natural Sciences (Cambridge). Other World Class Higher Education destinations include the universities of Bristol, Durham, Exeter and Nottingham, Imperial College, King's College and University College London, the London School of Economics and St Andrew's University, as well as Johns Hopkins University in the USA. Please follow the link to GCE Results and Higher Education Destinations 2014 for a detailed breakdown of our most recent A Level and Pre-U academic performance (this opens in a new window). Please see also  GCE Results and Higher Education Destinations 2013, UVI Destinations 2012 and UVI Destinations 2011 for destinations of our pupils in previous years.

Like many other good schools, IPS participates in Durham University’s tracking of pupils’ progress through Pre-prep, Prep School and Senior years, and on entry into Senior 7, all pupils sit a baseline assessment which is an indicator of academic potential. Analysis of (I)GCSE results five years later provides schools with a 'Value-Added Score'. This is a measure of how much better pupils perform at (I)GCSE compared to predictions made from the baseline. The placing of IPS from the Summer 2013 examinations gave us the best ever result. We were ranked in the top 1.5% of all schools nationally and in the top 2.0% of independent schools; a remarkable reflection on the diligence of the pupils and on the inspiration and dedication of the teaching staff.

Open Days are organised regularly through the year. If you wish to attend an Open Morning or Open Evening please contact the School Office on 020 8876 9991.
