Welcome to St Ives School

Educational excellence for boys and girls...

St Ives is an exceptional prep school for 2-11 year olds, 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. Read more

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 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.
