About Us

I would like to warmly welcome you to our school. We are a large primary school serving the population on the west side of St Ives. We care passionately about our children’s education and go the extra mile to help every child reach their full potential. This is reflected in our increasing SATs exam results. Our school environment is very smart and was rebuilt in September 2014.

Home-School Partnership

We believe that the links between school and home are important to enable every child to maximise his/her potential. Parents are actively encouraged to be involved in their child’s learning and many offer regular voluntary assistance or support specific activities during the school year. Our Home-School Link Book enables effective communication on a daily basis.

Buildings/Grounds

The school is currently housed in a new 16 classroom building which was ready for the school population in September 2014. The Infant building was refurbished and houses Reception, Pre-School and Kids’ Club (run by Play and Learn).

There are two main playground areas which include outside play equipment and a trim trail. The large playing field gives plenty of space for games lessons and lunchtime activities. There is an enclosed wildlife area with a pond and we have a vegetable plot with our own ‘eco’ friendly greenhouse.

Our caretaker takes a keen interest in looking after our school and lives in the bungalow on site.
