At Ipswich High School we are extremely fortunate to have a beautiful and vast environmental resource in which to play, learn and work. Our 87-acre grounds are very much part of our curriculum and ethos.
The School Day in our Pre-Prep School
Registration for our Pre-Prep pupils begins at 8:35am and the morning session ends at 11:45am. If pupils are staying with us for a full day, the afternoon session will end at 3:25pm. We offer Wraparound Care before and after school. You can find out more on our dedicated Wraparound Care page.
We welcome children in the term in which they turn three and operate a three-term school year. There are three year groups in the Pre-Prep:
Lower Pre-Prep (ages 3+): Pupils attend for a minimum of three mornings a week.
Middle Pre-Prep: (ages 4+): Pupils attend for a minimum of five mornings a week.
Upper Pre-Prep: Pupils must attend five full days of compulsory education (this is Reception class).
At the end of the Pre-Prep, your child will then automatically progress to Year 1 and carry on through the Prep School.
