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 housemaster, 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

2019-20: Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, UCL, LSE, Edinburgh, Manchester, Warwick, Bristol, Sheffield, York, Durham, New York.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We attach great importance to developing pupils’ individuality and their regard for tolerance, courtesy and respect. Pupils are able to find their strengths here, whether as the promising musician, the meticulous scholar, the outstanding sportsman or the talented artist. We strive to ensure pupils’ accomplishments reflect their talents and interests.
