Welcome to St Ivo School's new Alumni Association
For the past six decades St Ivo School has been the only secondary school serving St Ives and its surrounding villages. Positioned right in the heart of the community, the school has educated thousands of students, many of whom have subsequently gone on to send their own children here in later years. We have some current students who are the third generation of their family to go through St Ivo School and we also employ many members of staff who are former pupils.
To celebrate our 60th anniversary and our unique role in the town we have set up a brand new alumni association, Ivolumni, which is open to all former students and staff who are interested in 'putting something back' in to the school as well as meeting up with old friends.
Richard Perry, who has just retired as Head of Sixth Form at St Ivo, having worked at the school for 36 years, is heading up the alumni association and will act as the first point of contact for former pupils. We are also delighted to report that John Rhodes, who many former pupils will remember as the Headteacher from 1973-1993, has agreed to be Ivolumni's Honorary President.

Standing: Richard Perry (former Head of Sixth Form) and Robin King (Community Governor and former student).
Alumni associations are springing up in schools up and down the country as it has been recognised that former students can be a rich source of expertise and help to schools, including as career mentors, inspirational speakers and governors.
It is planned that as well as encouraging former St Ivo School pupils to get involved with the school, Ivolumni will also hold a big annual social event, the first of which will take place in 2016.
If you are a former student of St Ivo School we would love to hear what you have been up to since you left the school.
