At IHS we take Academic Excellence seriously - we want every girl to achieve the best they possibly can. It is not about everyone getting A*s but it is about stretching the individual and adding value to their education.
We do this by supporting each girl from day one. Every student is supported by a Head of Year, tutors and each of their subject teachers. We regularly test and monitor the girls' progress, which is reported home in tracking reports. Each girl is given a clear personal set of targets based on MIDYIS testing in the Senior School and ALIS testing in the Sixth Form. The targets are used in the tracking reports so that the teacher, parent and the girls all know how each individual is progressing throughout the year.
All teaching departments choose courses which are relevant and interesting for the girls here at IHS. They choose courses which are challenging and will allow girls to access each subject through to higher education and beyond. We have an extremely strong track record of enabling girls to access a variety of courses at prestigious establishments from Cambridge to the Courtauld Institute, from Imperial College to RADA. We are proud of the individual care, attention and support we offer every girl here at Ipswich High School.
