What the school says...

St Ives aims to help its pupils grow intellectually and spiritually into girls of whom we are all proud, who are not afraid of new challenges and who relish the wide range of opportunities that our school can offer them.

What the parents say...

St Ives School in Haslemere is the most amazing school - it is set in beautiful grounds complete with its on woodland which houses a superb forest school. The school has the most wonderful friendly and nurturing atmosphere that ensures that every single pupil reaches their full potential in terms of academics, sport, music, languages, art, drama and the whole host of activities on offer. The class room is where St Ives truly excels - the atmosphere is so conducive to learning - the teachers adapt their teaching to the individual and are positive and encouraging and inspire the girls to do their very best. I can not praise my daughter's teacher more highly - under her superb care she has blossomed into a confident little girl who just loves learning and adores going to school. The girls in her class are all delightful and the school encourages good manners and kindness at all times. St Ives school is a hidden gem in Haslemere.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

Children requiring any degree of learning support at St Ives school are treated sensitively, sympathetically and with respect. Girls with mild to moderate learning difficulties are given strategies and study skills and there is opportunity for formal and informal assessments. Advice and recommendations from Educational Psychologist reports are acknowledged and communicated to all relevant staff through the child's Individual Education Plan. Extra support is provided for any girl whenever it is felt necessary whilst she is at St Ives and this will continue for as long as it is required. Learning support is tailored to suit the individual need. The child may receive 1:1 withdrawn support, support within a small group either in or out of the class whichever is felt most appropriate and beneficial. We have a successful home/school link and treat teaching and learning as a partnership by informing parents on progress through meetings, written reports and sharing IEP reviews. The school's experienced and well informed SENCo has attended many courses on dyslexia and dyscalculia and works with every class at least once a week and therefore sees all pupils working in situ and can thus verify and observe any chid giving cause for concern. The school also offers sessions of Brain Gym. Help and advice is offered to students and parents regarding the selection of senior schools. We have a good partnership with learning support staff at local senior schools which allows us to provide them with necessary information. We pride ourselves at St Ives at being aware of The Code Of Practice for SEN and follow a policy which will entitle all girls to access a balanced and wide curriculum with confidence.
