The Curriculum

Our curriculum is tailored to the needs of the pupil and combines traditional methods with current pedagogical research. Our individualised learning programme prepares pupils for entry into the finest senior schools in London and beyond. A state of the art science lab and multi-purpose dining hall strengthen our provision. Pupils are taught by specialist teachers for IT, music, sport and languages.

Games & the Arts

Through curriculum sport lessons, our pupils learn to set targets for themselves; and compete against others, individually and as team members. The sporting activities available vary as the children move through the school and will include athletics, swimming, gymnastics, dance and team games such as football, netball, rounders, tennis, hockey and touch rugby.

Pastoral Care

Ivy House School equips each pupil with the academic ability, social awareness, confidence and self-motivation required for a natural transition to senior school. Ivy House School pupils are encouraged to contribute to the wider life of the school by participating in the School Council and our various charity committees. The older pupils support our newer recruits, helping them to settle into and enjoy the routines of school life.

Recent Scholarships

Head Teachers’ Philosophy

Exploring a pupil’s natural gifts, in addition to covering the core subjects such as English, mathematics and science, encourages individual learning, motivating each child to continue with that learning throughout their life, becoming a curious and confident learner for life.
