“We inspect and regulate to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages. The new Ofsted brings together the wide experience of four inspectorates to make a greater difference for every child, and for all young people and adult learners, in England. Their educational, economic and social well-being will promote our success as a country.”


Our Latest Ofsted Report

The overall judgement for Ivanhoe is ‘Good’ and the Lead Inspector described Ivanhoe as a ‘really good school’ and said we were ‘well on the way to outstanding’. He praised the significant improvement work done by Ivanhoe leaders, governors and staff over the last 3 years since the previous inspection, taking into account the fact that Ofsted has significantly ‘raised the bar’ for all schools during this time. 

Staff, students, parents and governors all conveyed their pride in the school very clearly to the inspection team and we are delighted that the inspection has confirmed the high quality of education that Ivanhoe provides. 

The areas for improvement highlighted in the inspection feedback are also a confirmation that we are focusing our efforts on the right strategic issues for the school. We are therefore very well placed to continue our efforts and our ‘Journey to Excellence’. Ivanhoe senior leaders, governors and all our staff continue to be ambitious to achieve the highest standards for all our students and to ensure that they are well prepared for the next stage of their education at Key Stage 4.

But most importantly, this is a school that cares. The very dedicated staff team here welcomes, values and develops every young person both academically and as a whole person, and we are very proud to see the many qualities of Ivanhoe students and staff described so positively in the Ofsted report.
