We want our boys to grow into creative, intuitive and sensitive young men.
When you visit St Ives, you will see that the facilities are outstanding with spacious grounds and large open classrooms. However, our focus is on human resources and building connections between people. Our teachers know their boys well and aim to give them the opportunity to blossom intellectually, socially and emotionally. This community thrives on a culture of mutual respect as we seek to educate the heart and mind. We want our boys to grow up into creative, intuitive and sensitive young men.
St Ives boys lead a very busy and productive school life. They participate in a variety of programmes including Music, Science, Drama, Debating, Visual Arts, Languages, Chess and of course, Sport. The swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts are in constant use as are the two main ovals for cricket, rugby and football.
Schools can make extravagant claims and promises. Grammar was founded with the one aim in mind – the preparation of talented boys for advanced study, ultimately university. Our goal is to lay a strong foundation that will enable our boys to flourish as they continue on their educational journey.
