Age Range Change at Ivanhoe

Ivanhoe College will be welcoming Year 10 students from across North West Leicestershire and South Derbyshire in August 2022. Most of these students will be staying on with us after they complete their KS3 education in Year 9, but we also be accepting applications for those wishing to join us for their GCSE's. Our admissions policy can be found by clicking here.


For families making secondary school applications in October 2021 for an August 2022 start, you will be choosing the school that child will stay at right through from ages 11 to 16. We believe that offering 11-16 education in one school will have huge benefits for students, not only academic achievements but also social and well-being benefits.   

Mrs Allford, Headteacher said “Working with the same pupils over five years can be an extremely rewarding experience and can lead to better outcomes. The journey to GCSE is a five year journey from years 7-11 and we look forward to working with students right through to GCSE.


Why should you choose Ivanhoe?

  • We have a proven track record of supporting students through the transition from primary school to high school. Not only is this based on over 60 years experience, but is also down to our excellent relationships with over 30 local primary schools. 
  • We have a strong body of expert leaders and teachers. All senior and middle leaders have completed a National Professional Qualification for their career stage and their expertise is widely sought from other schools in the area. 
  • We have a clear GCSE vision: developed and led by our experienced leaders and current GCSE Examiners and Moderators working at Ivanhoe. We also have excellent support from the LiFE Mat to ensure the success of our transition to an 11-16 school.
  • We have high expectations for our students, in attendance, behaviour, attitude and achievement. Our pastoral team:  from Form Tutors through to Heads of Progress, Care and Guidance Team, SEND Team and Senior Leaders will all help your child achieve their full academic potential.
  • We will have small year groups which will allow for personalised learning and targeted support where needed.
  • We are committed to the education of the 'whole person'. 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.
