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!

Year 6 into 7 Open Evening

Year 6 parents/carers are invited to visit us on Thursday 8th October for our annual Open Evening. This will take place from 6.00pm to 8.30pm, with talks taking place in the Main Hall at 6.00pm and repeated at 7.00pm. There will also be the opportunity for parents and students to visit subject areas, where there will be a variety of activities to take part in and subject staff available to discuss the curriculum. We hope that this will provide parents and students with an insight into life at St Ivo.

Sixth Form Open Evening

Year 11 parents/carers and students from both St Ivo and other schools are invited to our Open Evening on Thursday 8th October, from 6pm to 8.30pm. Talks will take place in the Dining Hall at 6.30pm and repeated at 7.30pm, together with the opportunity to visit subject areas for a flavour of the 40+ courses we offer at A Level and Level 2. We have just opened a second new study area exclusively for Sixth Formers, and with over 95% of our students recently rating their Sixth Form experience as good or outstanding, why not come along and see what we can offer!

Early Close 8th October & Professional Day 9th October

Please note that as in previous years school will be closing early on Thursday 8th October, at 2.00pm, prior to our Open Evening. We have arranged for the village buses to collect students at this time, except for the Whippet number 1 service to Hemingford, Fenstanton, Hilton and Papworth for which students will need to make alternative arrangements. We hope this does not cause any inconvenience to families.

Please also note that as previously announced the school will be closed to all students on Friday 9th October for a staff professional day. Details of terms dates through to summer 2017 can be found on the term dates page.

Information Evenings & Parent Handbook

India Exchange

Students and staff are enjoying an international exchange opportunity this week, being run by the RE department.

Twenty children and two teachers from Delhi have so far enjoyed a day in school, a trip round St Ives where they met the mayor, Stratford Upon Avon and Coventry cathedral. Today they visited Nottingham and learned about Robin Hood, and the Holocaust memorial museum in Laxton. They are all having a wonderful time too with their host families from our school who have shown them great hospitality and have enjoyed this cultural exchange.
