It's safe to say that the last year has been a challenge for you and for schools. It has dramatically changed the way in which we can welcome you to the school and unfortunately, we will not be able to have you into Ivanhoe for the 'transition days' like we have with students in the past, due to crossing of bubbles from different schools.
But, last Summer we had a very successful online transition package for our current Year 7's, and we will putting together something similar for you this year.
You will be having a visit, from your new Headteacher,Mrs Allford, over the next couple of weeks in your primary school. This will give you a great opportunity to start finding out about life at Ivanhoe and to ask any questions you may already have thought of.
Then, keep a regular eye on this page as we add videos and guides over the coming weeks to help you prepare for starting at Ivanhoe in August 2021.
If you have any further questions that haven't yet been covered, please in the first instance email our Admissions Co-ordinator Mrs Gray email@example.com
If you have not already completed the Ivanhoe Pupil Admission Form and returned it to the school (via your primary school) please do so a.s.a.p. The form can be emailed to Mrs Gray.
If your child has additional medical needs please ensure you have completed an I.H.P. form and returned it to school. If you have not returned it through your primary school please send a copy by email.
(This is not for S.E.N. needs, we have already been given this information by your primary school).

The school can claim additional funding to support your child's learning if they fall into one of the following categories:
To claim both we need some information from you. To read the full details please click here.
Once your child starts school our preferred method of communication is through the MyEd App. We would appreciate it if you could download the app before your child starts with us. Once they start your app will be linked directly with your child's school records, enabling you to see how they are performing in lessons and attendance amongst other things. It is also an excellent way for us to message you and allow you to fill in things such as consent forms easily, and allow you to have 2 way communication with staff. We have had excellent feedback from parents about it. It is available for android or apple devices.
Parents who do not sign up to the app will still receive messages via text or email, but unfortunately this incurs a large cost for the school, which could be better spent on your child's learning.
In the meantime please browse the website, there is lots of information about life at Ivanhoe. In particular you may enjoy looking at our news stories which will show you some of the things that you might be involved in when you start Ivanhoe.
