Their future success depends upon us all working together in a collective effort to give this generation access to a first class education and the opportunities it provides.
Whether large or small, all donations make a difference and are hugely valued by the School and those who benefit from them.
Leaving a gift in your will to Ipswich School is a very personal way of providing opportunity to future generations of pupils.
Wendy Sun OI Class of 2017 and Bursary Recipient
“I am so grateful for all the help I received. It is the generosity of the school and the amazing teachers here that have allowed me to become who I am now”
Hannah McFarland OI Class of 2002 and Bursary Recipient
“My time at Ipswich School was genuinely an incredibly happy period of my life. As I look back over the things I've done since school I can't quite believe how lucky I have been. I will always be grateful to the school for giving me the knowledge, skills and ambition to achieve what I have.
I genuinely believe the bursary I was awarded changed my life”
Alex Yeandle OI Class of 2016 and Bursary and Scholarship Recipient
“Without a shadow of a doubt Ipswich School made me as a person and prepared me for adult life. The opportunities I find myself with going into the future are due to the fantastic education I received, not just in an academic sense but in a co-curricular sense also. Experiences which will stay with me for the rest of my life.
I will forever be in gratitude for the bursary and scholarship schemes available at Ipswich and strongly believe in the potential they have for furthering social mobility in Suffolk and surrounding areas.”
Karl Daniels OI Class of 1953, Former Chair of Governors and Donor
“It is so necessary for Ipswich School to be able to provide bursaries for boys and girls who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to come here – my education at this school gave me so much and I am delighted to have been able to give something back.
I hope my experience, and the joy it has given me to see this young person excel, will encourage other OIs to support the provision of bursaries in the future, at whatever level.”
Rosie Geelmuyden OI Class of 2018 and Bursary Recipient
“Without the assistance from my Ipswich School Bursary, I don't believe that I would have been able to achieve half as much as I have. Ipswich School has provided me with an extensive level of support and a wide range of opportunities which would not have been available to me elsewhere.Thankfully the generosity of the School allowed for me to learn and grow in an environment more suited to me.”
Our daughter is taught in a supportive and caring environment, has amazing opportunities and is nurtured musically, academically and holistically. The ethos and values of the School are to produce happy, well rounded pupils and this is without question our experience of Ipswich School.
John Poulter, Former Governor and Donor
“Education is the most valuable legacy that one generation can bestow on the next. The recipient of the bursary which I funded will, I am sure, relish their good fortune, but the benefit extends to the wider School community.
It is a privilege to have made the contribution and I urge others to do likewise.”
