Please note that following its temporary closure owing to national COVID-19 containment measures, Ibstock Place School looks forward to reopening for all pupils on Thursday 3 September 2020. Further information about arrangements for the School's reopening in September will be provided for current pupils and parents in due course.
Restrictions on public access to the campus, however, will mean that we shall not be able to welcome prospective parents and children to scheduled Friday morning visits to the Pre-Prep and Prep School just yet. In the meantime, do browse our website and consult our 'Welcome to the Preparatory Department' brochure below which provides a wealth of information. Please contact the Registrar for further information and any questions you may have.

“Slap bang in the centre of the site, the Prep School feels like a school in its own right, think parents. Pre-Prep, which runs reception to year 1 (gentler transition through EYFS) and Prep (years 2 to 6) have school within a school – smart, well equipped classroom blocks, library, art and ICT space and playground.”Good Schools Guide 2017
“All this requires – and gets - quality teaching. Old cynics have gone, say parents. In their place, younger enthusiasts (many in 20s) raved about by parents, inspectors, and pupils. ‘Almost exclusively exceptional,’ said one prep parent.”Good Schools Guide 2017
