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

Central to our exceptional pastoral care are our four Houses and their vertical tutor groups, which allow pupils of different ages to support each other. An in-school counselling service offers valuable support to our experienced and sensitive pastoral staff, while a thriving pupil mentoring scheme also contributes to the outstanding provision which we make for our pupils’ wellbeing.

University Places

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

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

No young person should grow up in a bubble. Above all, an IPS education is all about making connections; intellectual ones most certainly, but social and cultural ones as well. We seek an open and diverse community, one in which everyone can grow and feel heard.
