St Ives is an exceptional prep school for girls aged 2-11 and boys aged 2-7, set in 8 acres of beautiful parkland just a short drive from Haslemere High Street.
At St Ives, we believe education should be relevant, interesting, stimulating, engaging, and above all, fun! Learning can take place anywhere, in and out of the classroom, and so we seize every opportunity. We have specialist subject teachers and small class sizes to ensure that our pupils can thrive in lessons. Our aim is for every child to leave St Ives at the end of the day feeling that today really was the best day ever.
We have an outstanding record of pupils achieving their first-choice entry of senior schools, with many scholarships awarded annually. In 2017, every child in Year 6 was accepted into the school of their choice, with over 50% receiving scholarships to prestigious independent schools such as Guildford High School, Cranleigh, Frensham Heights and Prior’s Field School.
“St Ives may look small but actually it is exploding with education, excitement and fun! All of the teachers are inspiring in each and every lesson.” - Pupil
There is no real secret to our success – we know that the combination of small class sizes, dedicated staff and outstanding pastoral care is key to giving our children the safe and stable environment they need to grow and flourish.
The best way to get a feel for our school is to come and visit us. Join us at one of our open mornings, get stuck in at a Forest School activity morning, or book a personal tour. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
