Invicta Grammar School
Welcome to Invicta Grammar School
At Invicta, we seek to develop the skills, talents and interests of all our students as individuals. We have high expectations and high aspirations for all, and our vision is one of academic excellence in a supportive and caring environment. It is our aim that during their time at Invicta, girls will develop certain qualities. They will become knowledgeable, independent, innovative, ambitious, articulate and considerate.
What makes us different?
Our approach to students includes three key aspects: Care, Education and Opportunities.
Our primary aim at Invicta is to ensure our girls are happy. This will enable them to be self-confident, inquiring, tolerant, and positive with well-rounded characters; and have independent minds, which respects the differences of others. By the time our girls leave Invicta, they will further develop a true sense of self-worth that will enable them to stand up for themselves and for a purpose greater than themselves, and, in doing so, to be of value to society. Nurturing individuality and yet understanding and appreciating the differences of others is central to Invicta's philosophy. This is achieved through an extensive system of support, guidance and care.
At Invicta Grammar School we also recognise the importance of excellent academic results. However, we believe that for our girls to be successful and happy in this challenging and competitive world it is also necessary for them to be equipped with more than good results. Our students need to be creative, to work cooperatively, and to have highly developed personal and social skills.
Invicta Grammar School provides a rich programme of opportunities aimed at giving girls diverse and exciting experiences that enable them to be 'rounded' and enthused about the world they live in. Confidence, enterprise, creativity and internationalism are developed through projects of leadership, community and enterprise, societies, visits and extended learning. The importance of participation in these opportunities makes school life about more than examination success; meeting new people, gaining skills, employability, following a passion, discovering a passion and having something to talk about. Most importantly - we understand that students who take advantage of what is on offer, enjoy their education. Enjoyment leads to success!
All students at Invicta Grammar School have equal access to the extensive curriculum. This enables all students to make progress in line with their academic potential. The school makes use of a wide number of funding strands in order to ensure that students are also able to be involved in a range of extra-curricular activities and can take advantage of the additional opportunities available to the students and their families.
We are very proud of our students’ success in both their GCSE and A level results.
Students achieved a superb set of GCSE results with 100% students achieving 5 A*-C grades and 72% of all grades are A* and A grades. More than three quarters of all 181 students gained 5 or more A* or A grades and over half of all students achieved 8 A* or A grades.
Students at Invicta Grammar School achieved 68% A*- B grades in their A Level studies this year; these grades reflect the hard-work and dedication of our students who have also raised an inspirational amount of money for both local and national charities by collecting nearly £48,000!
Julie Derrick, Headteacher commented ‘Our students have yet again risen to the challenge of combining their own academic with charitable work to not only give themselves the best possible opportunities moving forward, but also to improve the lives of others in their local, national and international community. What has been a real delight to see is that they have managed this with a smile on their faces. We are incredibly proud of them and wish them all the best as they take their next steps in the world.’
Lastly, but by no means least, four of our students who applied to study Medicine and Veterinary Science have been accepted onto their chosen courses.
