Founding Futures Bursary Fund

We want to be able to offer an outstanding education to any child who can benefit, regardless of their family's financial circumstances.

Access to opportunity should not be limited by background and we want to do what we can to offer a superb education based on merit, not means.

Unlike many other Independent schools, Ipswich does not have a large endowment providing bursaries to support children in the School. Every year we have to turn away deserving children with the potential to benefit from our outstanding educational and co-curricular opportunities.


The impact of a bursary far outweighs the actual amount given. It is an immeasurable gift that can redefine the life of its recipient. Below are just some of the lives changed by receiving 100% fee assistance at Ipswich School.


"Ipswich School has changed my life"

Dr Hannah McFarland

"I will forever be grateful to Ipswich School"

Professor Mark Bailey

"The Bursary at Ipswich School Changed My Life"

Wendy Sun

"I am so grateful for all the help I received"


We need your help to fully fund as many 100% bursary places as possible to offer opportunity to deserving young people in our community. It is the ultimate dream to, one day, be needs blind. 

Through the Founding Futures Bursary Fund, we will begin supporting children in their educational journey immediately. We have also started to build an endowment that will resonate for years to come.

Now, more than ever, we need the Ipswich School community to come together to help bring this dream to fruition and transform the lives of young people for decades to come. 

Join us in giving this gift to the future generation – the gift of first-class education in outstanding surroundings; the gift of a foundation for their future.
