Welcome to Ilford County High School

Here at ICHS we are naturally proud of our reputation for academic excellence. ICHS is a friendly and happy school with high expectations of both learning and behaviour. The school motto is Empowering to Excel by Learning Together and we place great emphasis on strong mutual respect being shown by everyone who attends the school. As a staff, we work, together with parents and governors to achieve the best we can for all the students who attend our school. 

Academic achievement is part of a well-balanced education. In addition to helping students achieve their academic potential, we aim to develop within them self-respect, tolerance and intellectual curiosity. We nurture sporting, artistic and cultural interests and support students as they develop their own values and beliefs. We encourage the young men who attend ICHS to become actively involved in both the school and the wider community, to take responsibility and to show leadership. We provide challenges within a supportive environment which enable students to develop their characters so they can leave ICHS as mature, confident and well balanced young men. Students graduate from ICHS with the personal attributes, resilience and commitment that open the doors into the ‘best’ of Higher Education and employment. 

One of the best ways to find out about us is to visit the school and I am very confident that you will meet young men who clearly enjoy school, their learning and who revel in the opportunities provided at ICHS.
