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.
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!
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.
It was great to see so many parents at our recent information evenings for Years 7 - 10 & 12, and we look forward to meeting Year 11 parents in March for an information evenings focusing on revision for final GCSE exams.
If you have not yet received your copy of our parent handbook, this should be with you in the next week. Alternatively, you can access online copies: Year 7 – 11 handbook, Sixth Form handbook. Please note that a few dates were misprinted in the paper copy of the handbook. For the most up to date list of dates for your child’s year group, please refer to the diary dates page which is updated throughout the year.
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.
