St Ives School to Become Fully Co-educational
/ Categories: General, In the press
St Ives School in Haslemere has announced that it is going to become fully co-educational from September 2020.
In 2017, St Ives started accepting boys in the Pre-Prep department. Due to the popularity of this amongst current parents, and given the growing trend of educating boys and girls together, the Board of Governors has decided to take boys all the way through the school until Year 6 from September 2020.
This allows the boys who are currently in the school to continue enjoying the nurturing environment of St Ives for all of their primary education. The school’s ethos and values will remain the same and the school believes all the children will benefit from continuing their education together.
St Ives School is currently riding high under the helm of Mrs Kay Goldsworthy with a very successful 2018. In December 2018, St Ives was given the ‘Highly Commended’ Award for Prep School of the Year at the Independent Schools Awards and in February 2018, it was shortlisted for Prep School of the Year at the Tes Awards.
Kay Goldsworthy, Head Teacher, has said “Having had an extremely successful 2018, with pupil numbers increasing in every year group and a growing number of boys in the Pre-Prep and Nursery, it feels like the right time to become fully co-educational throughout the whole school. We are delighted that the boys we currently have here can continue their education, along with their sisters, in an environment where they are happy and flourishing”.
St Ives is holding Open Mornings on Friday 18th January, Friday 1st February and Thursday 7th March from 9.30-11am. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01428 643734 to attend.
