St Ivo School

Welcome to St Ivo School!

Our ethos is about fulfilling potential, ensuring that everyone who comes to our school achieves everything of which they are capable - nothing is more important to us than that.  We are also a friendly, welcoming school, where students work hard and achieve great things, every day!

The key to young people fulfilling their potential is that they receive an outstanding education, which is the sole aim of our school.  Our key aim, as staff, is to ensure that we are providing all our students with that outstanding education.  Another key aspect is to create the conditions in which young people can flourish, so working together to ensure great teaching is a high priority.  From the students, we expect a superb attitude to their learning, extraordinarily hard work every day and outstanding behaviour.

Of course, examination results matter, but St Ivo School is about much more than examination results.  It is about providing students with a broad, balanced and enriching experience of school life, in a caring environment, that will help them develop as confident, active citizens of the 21st century, who can make their own contribution towards making our world a better place.

We are an open school; if you would like to come and see us, please do contact us.  We would love to see you!
