The Curriculum

Kindergarten children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in a rich and stimulating environment. Prep years 1-6 follow a broad curriculum that goes beyond the national curriculum and balances building strong academic foundations with a commitment to the arts and sport.

Games & The Arts

Sport is taught by specialists throughout the school and, from Prep 3, pupils take advantage of the senior school sports facilities which are all within walking distance. Pupils follow a curriculum rich in the arts, with many performance opportunities throughout the year.

Pastoral Care

A warm and welcoming atmosphere is palpable. Caring teachers and classroom assistants develop a successful home/school partnership, encouraging trust and keeping parents informed. There is a strong sense of community and of pupils and staff working together. Class teachers are a constant source of encouragement, praise and advice, supported by the wider staff. All children are provided with a delicious and nutritionally balanced lunch in order to develop good habits for life. 

Recent Scholarships

Scholarships in 2019 and 2020: IPS, Hampton School, King’s College School, Magdalen College School, Westminster Under School.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We find and develop the talents of our pupils in a supportive and purposeful environment. The curriculum is broad and challenging, augmented by around 70 co-curricular clubs, ensuring every child reaches her or his potential. Children are fully prepared for the 11+, but never at the expense of the wider curriculum.

Outstanding Characteristics

IPS offers pupils a nurturing start to their school career within purpose built spaces, surrounded by greenery and play spaces. From the prep school, they access the specialist facilities on their doorstep: Refectory, swimming pool, science laboratory, IT suites, performance spaces, sports fields and Richmond Park.
