At Ivanhoe our students come first. We are committed to the education of the 'whole person', where we are confident that the enrichment experiences offered alongside our formal curriculum will ensure that all of our students will leave Ivanhoe as happy, successful, informed, resilient young adults ready to make a positive contribution to their world.
We are a caring school with a disciplined family atmosphere. We have high expectations for our students, in attendance, behaviour, attitude and achievement and all students follow the ‘Ivanhoe Way’ to achieve success.
Our vision statement describes us being on a ‘Journey to Excellence’ and we value the unique contribution of each student and want them to achieve their full potential. Highly skilled and dedicated staff provide an excellent, caring environment in which students can learn and flourish safely. We enjoy learning together – not only in lessons but also through the wide range of extra-curricular activities we have on offer, and we encourage all students to get involved and develop their skills and talents further.
From Autumn 2022 we began making the exciting transition from being a 11-14 school to becoming and 11-16 school. We have spent many years preparing for this change and we have a strong GCSE vision led by our very experienced leaders including current GCSE examiners and moderators we have working at Ivanhoe. We are also supported by the LiFE Multi Academy Trust, and work closely with the other schools in the ‘National Forest Hub’ (Ivanhoe School, Ibstock Community College and Ashby School).
We are extremely proud of our excellent results which are consistently well above national averages both at the end of Key Stage 3 and when students have gone on to achieve their GCSEs results. High Attaining students thrive at Ivanhoe, with a good proportion of our past students gaining the highest levels at GCSE and A-Level, and high rates staying on in the sixth form and going to university. The Age Range Change in the area will ensure smaller class sizes allowing us to allow for personalised learning and targeted support where needed.
