At Ipswich Preparatory School, every teacher has a pastoral role and we place great emphasis on enabling children to achieve high academic standards by offering quality teaching and a supportive learning environment. This is set within a caring and friendly community that recognises the needs of individual children. We attach importance to moral and spiritual values and Golden Rules, which are central to the way in which the children are encouraged to learn to work and play together. We challenge the children to rise to our high expectations, encouraging them to extend their academic horizons and develop independence coupled with self-discipline and self-motivation. Growing up together helps children to face new challenges with confidence.
