St Ivo School

Welcome to St Ivo School!

Our ethos is about fulfilling potential, ensuring that everyone who comes to our school achieves everything of which they are capable - nothing is more important to us than that.  We are also a friendly, welcoming school, where students work hard and achieve great things, every day!

The key to young people fulfilling their potential is that they receive an outstanding education, which is the sole aim of our school.  Our key aim, as staff, is to ensure that we are providing all our students with that outstanding education.  Another key aspect is to create the conditions in which young people can flourish, so working together to ensure great teaching is a high priority.  From the students, we expect a superb attitude to their learning, extraordinarily hard work every day and outstanding behaviour.

Of course, examination results matter, but St Ivo School is about much more than examination results.  It is about providing students with a broad, balanced and enriching experience of school life, in a caring environment, that will help them develop as confident, active citizens of the 21st century, who can make their own contribution towards making our world a better place.

We are an open school; if you would like to come and see us, please do contact us.  We would love to see you!

GCSE Results 2015

St Ivo students have been celebrating terrific achievements - there were many delighted faces as students opened their envelopes and studied their results. Congratulations to so many students!

The majority of GCSE students have added significant value and met or exceeded their predictions based on prior achievement. 74.4% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, which is 6.5% better than last year (67.9%). 79% of all grades were A*-C, compared to 75% last year. At 62.3%, the students achieving 5 or more A*-C including English and maths, is slightly better than last year (62.2%). Our progress 8 figure looks likely to be significantly positive which indicates that ‘significant value’ has been added. Underneath these headline figure are many areas of success. An indication of the inclusive nature of our school is reflected in the fact that 98% of students gained 5 or more A*-G grades. There were some exceptional performances by individual subject areas (76.8% of students achieved A*-C in maths; 81.8% achieved A*-C grades in English literature; 100% of the 70 students in art achieved A*- C and 50% of the 117 geography students achieved A*-A grades!) and individual students  (for example: 8 A* and 3 A; 8 A* and 2 A; 7 A* and 2 A).

See the exam results page for more details.

A Level Results 2015

We are really pleased with yet another solid set of results by our sixth form. Many students have achieved better than their potential with over 29% having at least one grade A/A*. 46% of grades were A*-B, a terrific achievement and we are really proud of all the hard work put in by students and staff to achieve these results. 76% of grades achieved were A*-C and 99% were A*-E. 23% of students achieved 3 or more A*-B grades with 7 outstanding students gaining 2 A*s and an A. We have been particularly impressed with the number of students who have achieved their estimated grades and even better. Well done St Ivo students!
