The Curriculum

Our curriculum is forward-looking, challenging and dynamic. Small class sizes and the skilful deployment of specialist teaching allows our pupils to make rapid progress against their peers. The superb and beautiful facilities of the School add lustre to our provision, as does the extensive programme of co-curricular provision.

Games & The Arts

The expressive arts feature prominently and art, drama, music and dance are handsomely provided for, but so too is sport. We want our pupils to draw from the widest possible pool of experience.

Pastoral Care

Our pastoral care is second-to-none. Our pupils feel safe and secure, never lost nor left behind. We value the home-school link and invest real time in getting to know our families. When we work in concert, we can be truly transformative. Together, we can create a joyful childhood which will last a lifetime.

Recent Scholarships

External applicants for 7+ (Prep 3) entry and upwards who are offered a place for September 2023 following successful completion of the assessment procedure, will be granted an automatic right of progression to the Senior School at 11+.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Our Prep Department shares its aims with the Senior School: foremost is a desire to unlock that which is most special within each of our pupils. We want our young people to develop the knowledge, skills and, most importantly, the character which they shall need to flourish. Ibstonians aspire to curiosity, independence and ambition. They are self-disciplined but creative, confident yet compassionate. More than anything, they enjoy the extraordinary opportunities which we can provide for them and they turn their experiences to good use.

Outstanding Characteristics

A nurturing start in stunning greenery with delightful play spaces. The Senior School’s extensive facilities – Refectory, swimming pool, sports pitches – are all on the doorstep.
