The health and well-being of our school community and our visitors is our priority. Following the latest government guidance and easing of lock-down, we are able to offer personal school tours.
Ahead of your visit, we want to give you as much reassurance and detail as possible as to the measures we will put in place to ensure you get to experience as much of the ‘normal’ school tour experience as practicable, whilst of course maintaining social distancing and any other guidelines in place.
We are very pleased to offer you and your family two options for a visit: in each instance, we will ensure we respect and maintain social distance. There will be some new procedures in place, such as hand sanitising, face mask and glove wearing, to protect us all, but you shall still meet the Head, see the school and feel what makes us so special.
‘Quiet’ School Tour:
If you would like to arrange a visit before the start of the autumn term, then we would be very pleased to organise a tour with one of the Senior Team, when our students are not on site. During the coming school holidays, we can plan a visit to suit your diary; we can offer tours Monday to Friday during normal office hours. If you would prefer, we can arrange a video meeting with the Head if this is something you would appreciate.
If you would like to arrange this ‘quiet’ tour during the autumn term, then this would be outside of normal school hours (Monday to Friday after school or Saturdays if possible). This might be useful if you would want to avoid a busier experience.
‘Active’ School Tour:
From September, once school has reopened fully, we will offer a tour experience whilst our students are in school so that you can see us during a typical school day.
As mentioned, there will be some new procedures in place, such as hand sanitising, face mask and glove wearing, to protect us all, but you shall meet one of the Heads, tour the school and see our students, and feel what makes us so special.
Do let us know which of our tours you would like to arrange and of course we can personalise and respond to individual requests. We are all looking forward to welcoming you to visit Ipswich High School once again.
