The Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS, formerly Independent Association of Preparatory Schools) is a schools association, representing around 670 preparatory schools.[1]

The majority of IAPS' schools are in the UK, with other locations including Africa, the Middle East, Singapore, and the USA.

IAPS is a part of the Independent Schools Council.

History

IAPS was founded in 1892, as the Incorporated Association of Preparatory Schools.

In 1981 IAPS merged with the Association of Headmistresses of Preparatory Schools, and ten years later moved its headquarters from Kensington to its current offices in Leamington Spa.

In 2007 the Incorporated Association of Preparatory Schools changed its legal title to IAPS, and became known as the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools. In 2010, this was shortened to the current form.[2]
