Challenge yourself to read as many as you can and then complete the short writing task on the back of the sheet.
Your parent/guardian will need to sign it and you should bring it with you on your first day of school.
Here we have the latest video from our Ivanhoe Leadership Team.
Due to the CoronaVirus we have been unable to make our usual visits to primary schools to speak with the students prior to them starting. We will also not be able to run our usual transition days. Instead we have put together some short videos for students which we hope will help put their minds at rest about the move to secondary school. These videos include arriving at school, school dinners and more.
You will have received some information from Ivanhoe about the transition process via your primary schools. Part of this is a range of activities for students and parents to complete each week in the run up until the Summer holidays. We have loaded them here, broken down by week, for you to access if this is easier for you.
Following the questionnaire you completed from the transition book, and contacts we have had from new parents, we have seen a pattern in questions that you wanted to know the answers to. We have put together this list of FAQ's to answer these queries. Click the picture to be taken to the page.
In addition to the transition booklet we have put together a range of 'knowledge organisers' which contain a summary of the knowledge you should have when you leave primary school, that will give you a great starting point for the work you will do at high school. You could use some of the time during lockdown and the Summer holidays to revisit and revise these topics to ensure you are ready to start with us.
The BBC bite size also has some great resources for preparing your child for starting seocndary school. Click the picture to be taken directly to the site.
We know that most parents, carers and students will have visited the school as part of our open evenings prior to applying for a place at Ivanhoe. However, we also usually run an additional evening before the end of the summer term to give further details about the school, equipment and uniform students will need to make a successful start to the school year. However, due to restrictions on large gatherings this will not be able to go ahead.
We hope that the comprehensive information on our website will answer all of your questions. Please check back regularly as we will add even more information for you including uniform supply updates.
If there is anything else you wish to know, please contact Mrs Amanda Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org who looks after our admissions.

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.
If you are unable to order online please contact the school.
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.
