Beyond The Classroom

It is well-documented that an extensive and rewarding enrichment programme is directly linked to academic success, but equally important is the breadth of experience and challenge that enrichment and extra-curricular activities can offer girls. At Ipswich High, we have an outstanding programme, suited to every girls' needs.

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.
