Ian Galbraith Opens New Rooms at Ipswich School

Former Headmaster Ian Galbraith returned to Ipswich School on Friday 11th of November to open the new Geography classrooms named in his honour in an important expansion for Ipswich School.

The Galbraith Rooms were officially opened by Mr Galbraith, who many OIs will remember from his time as Headmaster from 1993 to 2010. The new classrooms provide additional space for the Geography Department, as well as two dedicated PE classrooms for Sixth Form students, and new office space for the expanded Sports Department.

Headmaster Nicholas Weaver said: “Ipswich School’s popularity with East Anglian families continues to grow and I’m delighted that we have been able to expand to meet the demand for places. The new block provides much more space for pupils and teachers and it’s wonderful that Mr Galbraith was able to come back to see how Ipswich School continues to go from strength to strength.” 

We welcomed back some former staff, Old Ipswichians and members of the School community to celebrate the opening of the light and airy classrooms. The rooms were refurbished over the summer after the space was no longer needed for changing facilities. The rooms previously used by Geography are now used by English and Maths to enable more space for these core subjects too.

In addition to this, the Prep School and Lodge Day Nursery have expanded onto the Anglesea Heights site which the School owns on Ivry Street to cope with extra demand for places for children in the nursery and pre-school.
