Learning together, excellence for all

As Headteacher of Iveshead School I am proud to welcome you to our school and share with you what we are aiming to achieve for our young people.  The character of our school can be defined by our three core values:

Respect  Enrich Succeed

Formed in the summer of 2017, from the merger of two highly respected and successful schools – Shepshed High School and Hind Leys College, Iveshead School is a thriving 11-18 secondary school with a campus at the heart of Shepshed in Leicestershire. Before the merger both Shepshed High School (October 2015) and Hind Leys College (November 2015) were judged to be ‘Good’ by OFSTED.

We welcome young people from our partner primary schools in Shepshed, Belton, Hathern, Long Whatton and Diseworth. Our reputation extends beyond Shepshed and every year we welcome new families choosing to come here from all over Leicestershire. Most young people will join us at the start of Year 7. Iveshead is extremely proud to maintain a specialist Post 16 provision where Iveshead students are joined by students from Castle Donington, Coalville and Loughborough to study A Levels and vocational Level 3 courses. Our enhanced provision for young people with autism is widely recognised as a centre of excellence.

Academic success is important to us.  In recent years we have been able to celebrate, with our students, consistently excellent results at all levels: in SATs, GCSEs and A Levels.  Iveshead is also a proudly inclusive school. We recognise that progress and success must be measured on an individual basis.  A Year 13 leaving us for university in Oxford is always a cause for celebration as is the young person confident enough to catch, alone, the bus to college. At Iveshead School we learn together with the aim of excellence for all.

We have a caring and disciplined family atmosphere.  Iveshead students are recognised and treated as individuals.  We have the highest of expectations for all members of Iveshead School.  Students are expected to attend every lesson, wear their uniform with pride, always try their best and work with us to make sure that their potential is reached.

I look forward to welcoming you to our campus.

Judith Johnson, Head of School
