Welcome to you, the newest members of the Ivanhoe Community!

You will now have all had a visit, at your primary school, from your new headteacher, Mrs Allford. This was a great opportunity for you to start finding out about life at Ivanhoe and Mrs Allford was very impressed with the questions you all asked. 

Keep a regular eye on this page as approximately weekly we hope to add videos and resources to help support your transition to Ivanhoe. Make sure you complete your weekly activities from the transition booklet too.  

If you have any further questions that haven't yet been covered, please in the first instance email our Admissions Co-ordinator Mrs Gray a.gray@ivanhoe.co.uk

Thus 6th May 2021

There will be more videos and activities coming so keep checking back to see the lastest news.
