Ivanhoe College has adopted the Leicestershire County Council Admissions Policy. This means that you will need to apply for a place through the Leicestershire County Council Online application form.
Again, we follow the Leicestershire County Council Admission Policy.
Please see the following notes from the Leicestershire County Council Website.
From September 2013 there is no longer a mandatory requirement for Local Authorities to co-ordinate In Year (Mid Term) transfers. Leicestershire County Council will, however, continue to co-ordinate applications on behalf of Leicestershire residents. Applications can be made using the Local Authorities common admissions application form, available online.or by completing a paper version available from the School Admissions Section Tel: 0116 305 6684.
The LA will aim to process all mid-term applications within 20 school days days where ever possible, and will write to you to inform you of the outcome of your application. If you are successful the letter will inform you of what steps to take next.
If you are unsuccessful you have the right to appeal. You appeal to admitting authority responsible for the school.
While a mid term application is being processed you must ensure your child continues attending their current school unless this is physically impossible (e.g. move form Cornwall)
The law enables parents of children seeking a school place to express a preference. Parents should note that admission authorities cannot guarantee a place for any child at their preferred school, even where they move into the schools catchment area. Applications received from parents moving into a catchment and requesting the catchment school will be considered late, if the application is made after 90 days of the house move.
If you are unsure which is your normal catchment area school, you can log onto www.leics.gov.uk/admissions or contact the School Admission and Pupil Service on 0116 3056684.
