Ipswich School is Top Independent School in Suffolk

The prestigious Sunday Times Parent Power Guide has once again named Ipswich School as the top independent school in Suffolk, an accolade which the school has now held for eight years in a row.


Ipswich School has gone up nearly 50 places to 126th in the national rankings, and climbed one place within East Anglia, where it is ranked as the sixth best performing school. The Parent Power guide judges schools by their A Level and GCSE exam grades from this summer’s exams.

Nicholas Weaver, Ipswich School Headmaster, said: “We are delighted once again to see that we are recognised in this guide for our academic excellence. Our teachers have a genuine passion for their subjects and use this to encourage all our pupils to achieve their potential, as our exam results show.”

He added: “We are a very popular choice in East Anglia and whilst our excellent academic results contribute to this, we know that it is our exceptional co-curricular offering and the pastoral care we offer to all in our community that makes our school the success it is.”
