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!

Enjoy Science Reading Challenge

Over 60 students in Years 7 - 9 have been enjoying getting their noses into science books as part of an extra-curricular challenge activity last half term. The Enjoying Science Reading Challenge was jointly coordinated between the Science Department and Resource Centre and encouraged students to delve into the wonderful world of science literature. The Challenge comprised three increasingly difficult levels. 61 students completed the Bronze level of the award with a superb 16 continuing on to complete the Silver level. Finally, there were 13 brilliant students who pushed themselves all the way and completed the Gold level of the award. This required them to prepare a short media project about the books they had been reading and ran as a competition. Kaitlyn in Year 7 was the overall media project winner, with prizes also awarded for each year group and presented in assemblies.

During the Challenge we also had Dr Helen Mason OBE from the University of Cambridge visit the school to talk to students about her research into the Sun and solar physics, as well as running bookmark competitions, creating a St Ivo Science Fun Facts book as part of World Book Day and culminating the Challenge by showing the award-winning Imitation Game film. It was a thoroughly enjoyable half term and amazing to see so many students getting involved with science outside of the classroom!

The major aim of the challenge was to enhance students' interest in science and to improve their scientific literacy. We want them to enjoy picking up a science book and not to see science books as boring or too challenging to approach. Science really is all around us! There is something science-related and interesting out there for everyone and this is what we are trying to promote by running the Enjoying Science Reading Challenge.
