Ibstock Place School is an independent co-educational day school for pupils aged 3 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 2012 were very strong. 63% of all GCSE and (I)GCSE entries were graded at A* or A, and 20% of our pupils achieved the top two grades in all of their subjects.
At Sixth Form level in 2012, GCE A Level and Pre-U results were the strongest ever. Overall, 52% of grades achieved by Upper Sixth (UVI) pupils were at A* or A, and 84% of all examination entries were graded at A*-B. As a consequence, in 2012 our pupils have taken up places at a range of prestigious universities including Birmingham, Bristol, Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter, University College London, King's College London, Nottingham and Warwick. 75% of our UCAS applicants in 2012 ended up in their first choice institution.

Like many other good schools, IPS participates in Durham University’s tracking of pupils’ progress through kindergarten, 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 2011 examinations has given us one of the best ever results. We have been ranked in the top 3% of all schools nationally and in the top 5% of independent schools; a remarkable reflection on the diligence of the pupils and on the inspiration and dedication of the teaching staff.
In stark contrast to the national scene, in 2011 all of our pupils were awarded pass grades (A*-C) in two modern foreign languages, with the vast majority being at A*-A. In French, 92% of candidates were awarded these top two grades while performances in the other core subjects were equally encouraging.
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.
