The school was established in 1954 and named after the historical novel Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, part of which was set at Ashby de la Zouch Castle. Now an academy, it caters for students between the ages of 11 and 14. Between 2004 and 2005 a new science block was constructed at the school. The school in 2013 had a new dinner hall and cafe dining area. Also in 2013 the school removed most of the lockers. The school has four houses, named Earth, Fire, Water and Air.
The school actively promotes British Values as set out by the UK Government in its 2011 Prevent Strategy, aimed at preventing the radicalization of young people. Fundamental British Values are defined as a respect for democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for different faiths and beliefs. The school embeds these principles into their Behaviour Policies and House Leader elections , and throughout the curriculum. The school also informs parents that any opposition to these values will be reported to the Leicestershire Prevent Team.
