School Aims and Values

Ivanhoe College - A Journey to Excellence

At Ivanhoe College our students come first. We recognise their different needs and work hard with them to develop their abilities and talents. We value the unique contribution of each student and want them to achieve their full potential.

Our vision statement describes us being on a ‘Journey to Excellence’.

On our journey we commit to:

  • Providing a rich and creative teaching and learning community
  • Providing a safe and caring environment
  • Investing in ourselves to ensure everyone achieves success
  • Respecting and valuing everyone and embracing diversity
  • Building strong partnerships within our local community
  • Continually preparing to meet future challenges

Our students are highly successful across a broad range of activities – personal and social development, sporting, artistic, musical and cultural. We work in close partnership with Ashby School (14-19) and Ibstock Community College (11-14), and welcome students from 14 partner primary schools in the Ashby Learning Community, ensuring continuity for all our students.

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. We are committed to working closely with parents and a high value is placed on student voice in all aspects of College life.

Highly qualified teachers and support staff provide an excellent, caring environment in which students can learn and flourish safely. Our aspirations, expectations and commitment are relentlessly high for all members of the college community.
