We are delighted to report that the following members of the Upper Sixth Form have secured offers from the University of Oxford to study courses at the colleges indicated: Oliver Gallen (Law, Lincoln), Maddie Judge (Biological Sciences, Pembroke), Sophia Rontogiannis (Biological Sciences, Keble), Miru Shin (Engineering, Lady Margaret Hall) and Cecilia Wilkins Dulanto (Music, St Peter's). We wish these pupils, and indeed all our UVIs working with application and industry to achieve many excellent university offers of places this year, every success as they prepare for A Level and Pre-U examinations over the coming months.
We are also pleased to announce that Nicholas Finch (Old Ibstonian 2018) has been offered a place to read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge.
We do hope that this website provides you with a flavour of our distinctive and successful School.
We have a passionate belief in all pupils receiving a challenging and inspirational education. Our ambitious and enthusiastic staff also 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 to become 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 do encourage you most warmly to arrange an appointment to visit the School during one of the Open Days and Events and we look forward to meeting you soon.
Our School has a proud record of academic achievement and our pupils’ outcomes in public examinations are excellent. Unsurprisingly, results of such a calibre are reflected in our Sixth Form pupils’ destinations for Higher Education. Our pupils move on to study at the world’s top universities.Examination Results
