The vision and values of LiFE are based on a commitment to a collaborative approach of working.  Under the leadership of the CEO, Chris Parkinson, LiFE MAT has already had a positive impact in developing collaboration and sharing best practice across the group of schools.  Joining the MAT gives Ivanhoe an an exciting opportunity for our school leaders to work with the Leadership Team at LiFE to continue to build on the good work that has already been done within the college.

On the date of the transfer, a representative from the Department for Education said “I am confident that these decisions will stand to benefit the local community and children for years to come."  As Headteacher, I am delighted that Ivanhoe has joined LiFE MAT and welcome the exciting opportunities that this will bring our school.
