Many thanks to our many hundreds of prospective pupils and their parents who took the trouble to come and see us for our Open Morning today. We hope you enjoyed your visit and we very much look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Thank you to nearly 20 alumni who returned last Friday to share with UVIs first-hand knowledge of institutions and courses, as well as the HE application process as a whole. A wide range of universities was represented, including Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, Durham and Leeds. https://t.co/l8Fy9hImNa
We are proud to report that after this year's record-breaking results for IGCSE, CEM's analysis places IPS in the front rank of schools. For "value-added" across all UK schools contributing data, IPS is placed in the top 5%; across the independent sector alone, within the top 7%.
An email, purporting to come from the Registrar at Ibstock Place School, is currently in circulation. This promises discounted school fees on payments, if made today. This is a phishing scam. Please beware and do not respond under any circumstances; report to Action Fraud.
We are delighted to announce that our PVIs have achieved record-breaking results in their GCSE/IGCSE exams. 83% of entries were graded A*/A (9 to 7) and 56% of entries were A*. It is testimony to the hard work of the pupils to have achieved so highly. Congratulations to all. https://t.co/LVcaW3Kc6x
Many congratulations to all our hard working UVIs who have secured some superb and richly deserved university places today. A quarter of the cohort achieved three A grades or better at A Level and our EPQ entry saw 84% achieve an A* or A. Well done and good luck to all. https://t.co/r9lcXgvuZY
Sending best of luck to the Senior 8 group who are out on their Ardeche adventure at the moment with Mr Diaz. We wish all IPS pupils, parents and staff a very enjoyable summer break. We look forward to seeing you on your return.
After 24 years, Mr Daniel retires. But thankfully he's teaching Chemistry next term. As we sang (apologies Lloyd Webber): "We'll try not to cry, Mr Daniel. The truth is, you'll never leave us. The lab is calling, so we're not mourning. No longer in post, What shall we miss most?" https://t.co/bA471r20Nq
Sad to say farewell to our leavers at today's Prize Giving, but it was a joyous occasion and the entertainment was of a superb standard - music, drama, poetry. Thank you to everyone who contributed. UVI - we look forward to one last hurrah at the Blue and White Ball tomorrow!
Well done Ciara, Georgina, Harry, Izzy, Juno, Ollie, Rebecca, Sophia, Tom - and also Miranda and Praskovya - for the fantastic success of 'The Wall' in @shinemediawards 2018. The Headmistress was able to announce this at Prize Giving today and we are so proud of you. #ShineSMA18 https://t.co/IuITf9N8fd
We are absolutely thrilled for Rebecca Webster, the other members of the Editorial Team and all the pupils who have contributed to 'The Wall' this year. Fantastic news to receive these awards and a great day for IPS to win this national competition! Thank you @shinemediawards https://t.co/b0JVCXluMI
Following his London Region win, we are delighted to report Senior 7 Jay Mahan's success in the Routes into Languages Spelling Bee National Final at Cambridge University. Jay came 4th overall, out of a total of 28,684 who started the competition. A truly outstanding achievement. https://t.co/COF9JEjlGJ
