Description:Prep School An independent co-educational day school for pupils aged 4 to 11 Explore the Prep School In line with HM Government's directive announced by the Prime Minister on Sunday 10 May, the School on Clarence Lane has now partially reopened for pupils in Kindergarten, Prep 1 and Prep 6. We also continue our on-site provision for the children of key workers. For all other pupils, we shall continue to operate remote learning throughout the period of School closure and remain in contact with pupils and parents to support them in whatever ways we can. We apologise for the disruption to our pupils’ education. We look forward to having greater clarity in due course and further information about when School will be able fully to re-open.Our thoughts are with all those affected by the current crisis.Children learn when they feel happy, secure, valued and safe. We believe that in a nurturing yet purposeful environment, we help every one of our children achieve her or his true potential both inside and outside the classroom.Our excellent teachers care deeply about the young people in their care and go the extra mile to ensure lessons are engaging, challenging and enjoyable. Our curriculum is broad and varied; sport, dance and the arts play a considerable part in the holistic education of a child and our pupils are provided with the very best opportunities in which to take part and excel.Our pupils are delightful; polite, kind, helpful and eager to learn. I see children running excitedly into School in the mornings and many parents report that their children count down the holidays as they cannot wait to be back at School. If we can instil a love of learning into your child, then we feel they are set for life.We look forward to welcoming you to the IPS family.Anna Sylvester-JohnsonHeadmistress Open Days Developing ambition and self-reliance We aim to develop pupils' naturally inquisitive minds, the self-confidence to think for themselves and the determination to pursue excellence in all they do. About Us Through teaching which challenges and inspires, a broad curriculum and a supportive pastoral system we develop the qualities of self-discipline, courtesy, leadership and, above all, kindness.

Pre-Prep, which runs reception to year 1 (gentler transition through EYFS) and Prep (years 2 to 6) have school within a school – smart, well equipped classroom blocks, library, art and ICT space and playground.” Good Schools Guide 2017 “All this requires – and gets - quality teaching. Old cynics have gone, say parents. In their place, younger enthusiasts (many in 20s) raved about by parents, inspectors, and pupils. ‘Almost exclusively exceptional,’ said one prep parent.” Good Schools Guide 2017 See the full report In line with HM Government's directive announced by the Prime Minister on Sunday 10 May, the School on Clarence Lane has now partially reopened for pupils in Kindergarten, Prep 1 and Prep 6.
