Global leader in Quality Assurance for English Language Teaching

We are proud to announce Ivanhoe Grammar School’s 25 years of continuous Quality Endorsement with NEAS, Global leader in Quality Assurance for English Language Teaching. This internationally recognised endorsement is testament to the quality of teaching staff and the tailored, onsite, intensive English program (ELICOS) students in the Ivanhoe International Academy experience. Students receive specific and holistic preparation for their mainstream education in either the VCE or the International Baccalaureate (IB).

Teacher quotes

“The Ivanhoe International Academy ensures that students are part of the Ivanhoe community from their first day on campus.”

Leisl Bruhn Dean of International Students

At the Ivanhoe International Academy, the specifically designed curriculum integrates students’ English as an Additional Language (EAL) preparation with mainstream subjects. Highly qualified teachers are proficient in delivering both ELICOS and other subjects ensuring that effective and meaningful learning takes place. Students benefit from a wide range of academic and pastoral support services, including after-hours tutorial assistance, guidance on time management, development of academic and personal skills, and individualised support.

Student quotes

“The advantage of the ELICOS Program is that you have more time to prepare your English skills before mainstream study…. we can get to know other international students and explore a wide variety of cultures which has been a great experience for me.”

Ivanhoe Grammar School develops young people of character through the integration of the Ivanhoe Learner Attributes. An Ivanhoe Learner is Courageous, Innovative, Balanced, Collaborative, Ethical, Reflective and Compassionate. We strive to embody and foster these characteristics in all aspects of our students’ experiences, including curricular, co-curricular, and community endeavours.
