Welcome to St Ives Preparatory

St Ives Preparatory School

If you are looking for a school where learning is both challenging and fun, you should join one of the regular tours, or come to our annual Open Day. This is a school where curious boys thrive and develop a love of learning. Our hope is that they will be well prepared when they leave Year Six to move to our Senior School at College Street in the city for their secondary schooling. Our mission at St Ives is to prepare them socially and intellectually for the rich academic life they will experience there.

At St Ives the atmosphere is positive. Teachers get to know their pupils well and the whole community thrives on mutual respect, co-operation and friendship. Most boys learn at least one musical instrument and there are choirs and musical groups to join. The School is set in beautiful grounds with plenty of space to play.

Schools can make all sorts of extravagant claims and promises. Grammar was founded with one aim in mind – the preparation of talented boys for advanced study, ultimately at university. If you think your son could benefit from what we have to offer, please get in touch with us right away. We’d love to hear from you.
