YEAR 6 pupils at St Ives School in Haslemere are celebrating a 70 per cent success rate for scholarships and awards this year.

Awards were gained in a variety of disciplines, from drama to art, cricket, swimming, all-rounded academics and maths – including a top academic scholarship to St Catherine’s in Bramley and an honorary head’s award to King Edward’s Witley.

The diversity of the scholarships shows the breadth and depth of the education St Ives offers.

St Ives headteacher Kay Goldsworthy said: “We are so proud of all our pupils who have done so well to gain places at their chosen senior schools and to have received so many scholarships is excellent.

“These accolades prove our unique offering of small class sizes and specialist teaching ensure our pupils reach their potential in all areas of school life, giving them an excellent grounding for senior school and beyond.

“They will thrive in their new schools and St Ives wishes them a really bright future.”
