The Curriculum

Committed to a liberal and humane education, we also recognise the primacy of traditional academic subjects as essential devices through which our pupils can build an understanding of the world.

Games & The Arts

A wealth of opportunity for co-curricular participation: A purpose-built sports hall; playing fields; swimming pool; all-weather pitch; stunning 300-seat theatre. IPS Singers tour internationally; Berkeley Ensemble is ensemble-in-residence. IPS artists exhibited by Royal College of Art. National Theatre Live screenings.

Pastoral Care

We maintain an outstanding pastoral programme which monitors each pupil’s development with care, sensitivity and guidance. From Senior 7–10, pupils join a vertically tutored house group for four years, thus building strong relationships between pupils, their head of house, two house tutors and pupils’ families. In PVI (Year 11), pupils are supported by a tutor and Head of PVI. A head of sixth-form and her tutor team provide VI pastoral care.

University Places

Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, Exeter, Imperial, UCL, LSE, Warwick, Exeter, Bath, Bristol, York.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Mr Christopher J Wolsey, formerly Deputy Head, took over the Headship in January 2021: ‘IPS will continue to innovate its curriculum, be ever-more connected to its context, working alongside multiple partners for our collective good, and maintain a culture in which everyone feels valued and in which the wellbeing of all is an all-encompassing priority.’
