Following government guidance, students will return to Ivanhoe in Year Group tutor groups rather than the House tutor groups we previously shared with you all. You will soon be receiving a letter letting you know which tutor group your child is in. If you and your child would like to read a little about your year group tutor please click the button below for our latest power point presentation. (scroll through to your teacher) We look forward to seeing you all soon.



How many books can you complete from this list during the summer holiday?

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.

Click the picture to get the list.












We would like to welcome the new members of our school who will be joining us in August. We have created this dedicated page for you and your parents and carers. 


Welcome videos

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.


Transition Booklet

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.


Getting Ready for School

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.


BBC Bite Size

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.


What else do you need to know?

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 who looks after our admissions.



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.

Click here for the form.


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).

Please click here for information about 


Pupil Premium and Free School Meals

The school can claim additional funding to support your child's learning if they fall into one of the following categories:

  1. FSM: Those students who are registered for Free School Meals
  2. Ever 6 FSM: Those pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).
  3. Children of members of Her Majesty's Forces.
  4.  LAC (Looked After Children): Those students who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
  5. Post-LAC including adopted children.

If your financial situation has changed you may now be entitled to free school meals for your child.

To claim both we need some information from you. To read the full details please click here.



We are currently in the process of liaising with our school wear suppliers to arrange online or telephone ordering. We will update the website and twitter as soon as we have further information.

To order a P.E. Kit the preferred method is online via this link:

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


Communication from 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. 

To find out about how to download as well as further benefits please click here. 


Further Information

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. 

You could also follow our twitter and youtube pages.
