Always check Ivanhoe term dates on this website – other websites may not be accurate.

Our term dates are usually agreed well in advance and we work closely with our local partner primary and secondary schools to ensure that the dates are agreed across the area. As an academy, we have the freedom to set our term dates and we always base this on the LA framework although there are some differences. Ivanhoe Governors ensure that decisions about term and holiday dates are based on educational grounds and that we try to even out term lengths as far as is possible.



If the guidance allows us to open fully at the start of the new term, Year 7 transition will be prioritised:

  • Year 7 will return on 27th August.

  • Year 8 will return on Friday 28th August

  • Year 9 will return on Tuesday 1st September.

This will allow us to transition all year groups back more effectively.

However, we are developing contingency plans to sub divide year groups into “bubbles” in the event of continued need for social distancing measures in Aug/Sept. We will continue to keep you updated about all eventualities as the National picture on Covid develops.
