A Level Results 2015
Invicta Grammar School is thrilled with another superb set of A Level results!
Invicta is thrilled to be again to be celebrating another set of fantastic results. Students at Invicta Grammar School achieved 69% 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 over £43,000! Not only have they achieved this, but Invicta is very proud of the fact that the students have achieved 200 A* and A grades. Out of a cohort of 160 students, 100% A* - E grades and 90% A* - C grades were gained, with 12% A* grades.
A great achievement this year is that we have doubled the number of students achieving an A* to B grade in two or more facilitating subjects from 21.7% to 42.5%. This has allowed more of our students to access the Russell Group universities which will naturally give them life changing opportunities, of which we are very proud.
We are also delighted to report that we have had 6 students successfully achieving Medicine and Veterinary Science places.

Julie Derrick, Headteacher, commented ‘Our superb achievements this year will undoubtedly provide our new and existing parents with the confidence that Invicta is the best grammar school in Maidstone for their daughter. In September we will be welcoming our biggest cohort ever; this along with our exam results proves how popular and successful Invicta is. We have no doubt that our new students will follow in the footsteps of our excellent role models. 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.’

I have grown so much and gained so much from all the invaluable support and friendship from staff and students at Invicta. Invicta is truly the best. I have been able to combine academic subjects such as Mathematics and Biology with Art and have achieved great grades in all – how lucky am I?!’

At Invicta we value the enrichment and personal development of our students. Our Extended Project Qualification results are testament to the fact that our students thrive on the opportunities they have, through our curriculum, to develop their independent study in preparation for university. Thirty nine students achieved A*/A grades. This is an amazing achievement which aptly endorses Invicta’s commitment to developing ‘rounded’ students.
