Ivanhoe College is a coeducational middle school located in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, England.

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.[citation needed] Now an academy, it caters for students between the ages of 11 and 14.[citation needed] Between 2004 and 2005 a new science block was constructed at the school.[citation needed] 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.
