The Curriculum

Our curriculum is suffused with the five ‘Mindset Aspects’ central to all teaching, pupils’ learning and assessment:
clarity; logical thought; initiative; considering consequences of words and actions; persisting against challenges.

Games & The Arts

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

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 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 his tutor team provide VI pastoral care.

University Places

2016: Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, Durham, Exeter, Edinburgh, Imperial, UCL, Illinois-Urbana-Champaign.

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.
