Ipswich School and Ipswich Prep School will open its doors to children and their families on Saturday.

The open morning event has been extended this year, giving people more time to have a look around the facilities, meet teachers, current pupils and take part in interactive games and activities.

The senior school in Henley Road, which includes a sixth form centre, will be open from 10am to 2pm, while the prep school in Ivry Street will be open from 10am to 1pm.

Headmaster Nicholas Weaver said: “There will be plenty of exciting things to see and do, which will hopefully provide visitors with an excellent insight into the school and what we can offer girls and boys to help them reach their full potential.”

For visitors aged three to five there will be the chance to visit an Enchanted Forest in the prep school with tea parties, fairies and elves between 10am and 12noon – call 01473 281302 to book a session.

There will also be a student-led tour of classrooms, along with welcome talks from Mr Weaver at 10.45am and 12.15pm, and from Amanda Childs, head of Ipswich Prep, at 10.15am.

On the following Saturday, October 3, the sport’s department of Ipswich School will host an open morning.
