The Ivanhoe Learner

Since its foundation in 1915, Ivanhoe Grammar School has been built around the key principle of developing young people of character.

What is an Ivanhoe Learner?

An Ivanhoe Learner is the embodiment of a young person of character. It is our priority at Ivanhoe Grammar School to integrate the attributes of an Ivanhoe Learner into every aspect of the learning experience. We do this so that whatever students set out to accomplish - both in school and in life - they will do so in accordance with the traits of a young person of character.

From the Early Learning Centre, through to our longest-serving staff, our community of Ivanhoe Learners extends beyond the classroom. Staff, students and families alike are committed to a life of enquiry and learning; from each other and the world around us.

Throughout all experiences at Ivanhoe Grammar School, we strive to embody these characteristics, to nurture them in our students and lead by example.
