Vision & Ethos

Ipswich High School is the region's leading independent all girls' school educating pupils aged 3-18. We are a strong, vibrant and thriving community - dynamic and above all supportive. With the unique support of the Girls' Day School Trust, our vision and ambition is to educate girls to become resilient, positive and successful young women, ready to embrace the challenges of the future.

Success begins at Ipswich High School for Girls

We build time into our school day to allow our pupils to enjoy life-enhancing activities, to explore their talents and to relish working together as a team, cast, ensemble or group.
