  • What is the point of showing a photograph which is patently NOT Brantham?

It may be 50 years since Sir Alf Ramsey’s England team won the World Cup - and even longer since he led Ipswich to win the First Division title in their debut season - but affection for the man and what he achieved remains undimmed in his adopted county of Suffolk.

In the Middle Ages Ipswich was not without schools, there is firm evidence of a grammar school as early as 1477 and probably as far back as 1399. This school received its Charter from Queen Elizabeth I in 1566 and went through a number of guises before it became, what is now, Ipswich School. The school buildings are on Henley Road but have previously been in Foundation Street and Blackfriars Monastery.
