St Ives pupils are going places...

My daughter knows the teachers in the school and they know her, it is friendly, warm and really knows it's stuff when it comes to child development.

Really nice nurturing environment, in lovely setting. Most important is how much my daughter loves it there - so much so she often doesn't want to come home!

My son, like all boys needs to get outside and be physical and the outdoor space at St Ives is an adventure park with lots of space to run and wonderful views, for him to run around in.

St Ives School Events


St Ives is a busy school and we regularly host a wide range of events including social events, activity mornings, fun sessions for children and open mornings.

Our regular events include:

Messy Little Fingers - a free weekly creative art session for 3 and 4 year olds

Reception Readiness - a weekly afternoon session from February half term to the end of the Summer term for children registered to join our reception class. The sessions are designed to familiarise the children with the school, their teachers and their classmates to make the transition to big school that much easier come September.

Open Mornings - Usually held on a Friday morning, we welcome prospective parents to view the school in action, meet the teaching staff and ask any questions they might have. Other open events include our regular activity sessions to which we invite children to experience the school in a fun, relaxed way.



Below is a list of our forthcoming events, please do take a look and if you'd like to attend any of them, do let us know. We look forward to welcoming you to St Ives School.
