Making music at Ipswich School
The Music Department of Ipswich School has an impressive reputation as a place where musicians thrive, finding unstinting support from expert staff. Opportunities abound for enjoyable achievement. From enthusiastic beginners to outstanding specialist students, everyone is encouraged to discover music that suits their tastes and develops their abilities.
We offer high academic standards in a stimulating and creative musical environment, provided by dedicated teachers in both Senior and Preparatory Schools supported by approximately thirty visiting instrumental teachers.
Music, with a strong practical emphasis, forms part of the curriculum for years 7 to 9. Music is offered at GCSE and A level, and students are well prepared for entry to music college or university.
Over the last few years, school-leavers have taken up choral scholarships at King’s and Jesus Colleges, Cambridge, an organ scholarship at Worcester College, Oxford, and a place at the Guildhall School of Music. Recent achievements by former pupils include a First and a starred First in music at Cambridge, while four pupils have won coveted places on the Aldeburgh Young Musicians scheme for the outstandingly talented.
