Open Days

Our Open Day Events are the perfect opportunity to visit our beautiful campus and see the school during an operational day. Whether you are interested in your child attending our Preparatory School, Senior School or Sixth Form; Ipswich High School is one of the top private schools for boys and girls in Suffolk.

Our Open Days include a guided tour of the school campus, lead by our staff and pupil ambassadors. These tours are the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you may have to our staff or current pupils about academics, school life and enrichment at Ipswich High School. Other events in our Open Day programme include talks and presentations from the Heads of School and opportunities to talk with our staff and Admissions team about bringing your child to Ipswich High School.

Our Open Day Programme

Head’s talks
Our Open Days begin with a welcome talk from Oona Carlin, Head and Eileen Fisher, Head of Prep School or Rob Hastings, Director of Sixth Form. Ms Carlin, Mrs Fisher and Mr Hastings will introduce the school, our approach to learning and our ethos to give you a flavour of what Ipswich High School has to offer at every stage of your child’s education.

The introductory talks give a holistic overview of the school’s diamond model approach, academics and values as well as explaining the programme for the day.

Tours of the school
Your pupil-led tour will be tailored to your child’s age and interests and will show you the school facilities and our classrooms and departments in action. You will be able to see our teaching buildings, sports facilities, art school, 300-seat theatre and our six-lane swimming pool. Our pupil ambassadors will be able to answer any questions you or your child may have about life at Ipswich High School and the vast number of opportunities on offer.

This is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about life at the school from a pupil’s perspective.

Whether you are interesting in your child joining our Pre-Prep, Preparatory School, Senior School or our Sixth Form, your tour will focus on the needs of you and your child.

Information and refreshments
This is your opportunity to speak on a one-to-one basis with our Admissions team, Senior Leadership Team, teaching staff and pupils to get all of the information you need to take your next steps in joining our school.

Whether you would like to know more about the admissions process, our GCSE or A Level curriculum, our extensive enrichment offering or scholarship applications, the expertise of our staff will be able to answer any queries you might have. You will leave our Open Morning with a clear view of the next steps you can take to apply for your child to attend Ipswich High School.

The most likely next step after attending one of our Open Mornings would be to fill in and return a Registration Form for your child. We will be with you every step of the way during the process of bringing your child to the school.
