Erasmus Conference – November 2015

Twenty five students and nine teachers from Italy, Spain, Turkey and France, have arrived at Invicta to participate in the Erasmus + Conference. The event is designed to bring together the first year of each countries work on the theme of Innovative Learning and Digital Technology. The students are staying with Invicta host families.

The students enjoyed a traditional afternoon tea on their arrival, before going to their host families for the night. The first day of the conference has seen delegates creating their local dishes with the Food Technology team and taking part in a STEM challenge with the Design and Technology Department. They will also attend a marketing presentation at Leeds Castle and carry out a SWOT analysis at Maidstone Museum. Friday will see them taking part in a number of debates before relaxing with a day of London sightseeing on Saturday.

Monday, 9 November will be the main conference day. Students will present their Erasmus + Project work, including their marketing campaigns and designs. A number of keynote speaker presentations are attending: Frances Coppola, writer on the banking sector, finance and economics will speak on the importance of technology in the financial sector, Richard Lack, UK Director of software company GIGYA will speak about his company and communication developments using new technology and Ralph Leighton from Canterbury Christchurch will speak about the use of technology in education. Caroline Morgan from the London College of Fashion will share her on-line portfolios and an on-line new business case study. The conference will end with a dinner for all delegates and staff in the Hall.

A big thank you to Mrs Lloyd, Mr Perry and Mrs Brewster for all their hard work in making the conference such a success. We would also like to thank Mrs Billingham, Mrs Woolley and Mrs Moore for the brilliant Cross Cultural Tasting event and the STEM Challenge.

2014 - 2015

Visit from Kanto International School, Japan, March 2015 

We are delighted to welcome students and two teachers from Kanto International School in Japan. This is the sixteenth year that Kanto has visited our school and we value their friendship and contribution to the cultural aspect of our students learning.

The group have been following a varied programme of activities since their arrival. They have been to the Tower of London and were amazed at The Crown Jewels. On Tuesday, they returned to the class room to undertake English lessons and an Easter Egg Hunt. On the same day, Year 7 were treated to a drama, dance and cultural performance. Our students were shown how to write in Japanese and some had the opportunity to dress in kimonos.

On Wednesday, they returned to London for a tour of the city and a theatre visit to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Thursday saw them in Canterbury Cathedral in the morning. The afternoon was spent at Kingshill Primary School performing for the primary school students and showing them how to write in Japanese. Friday will be spent at Valley Park School, where the group will take part in a Drama Day and will visit the school farm. Both Japanese and Invicta students are having a farewell dinner that evening before the final homestay weekend.

We were sad to say goodbye to our visitors but are looking forward to our students visiting Italy in October for World School 2015.

Erasmus Visit from Lycee Daugin in Bordeaux in France, March 2015

We were delighted to welcome students and teachers from the Lycee Daugin in Bordeaux. The visit was part of the Erasmus Plus Innovative Learning Project, with a focus on marketing.

The group visited Leeds Castle and Canterbury to analise the marketing of each site and completed a number of tasks at each location. They also enjoyed a lesson given by Miss Gater from our Business Studies Department. The rest of the visit included a visit to London and a series of debates.

Students really appreciated the hospitality of our host families and have praised the quality of the teaching at Invicta. One French student commented that “this was the best cultural experience he had ever had”.

Headteacher of Singapore’s flagship School visits Invicta, September 2014

Invicta was delighted to welcome Mr Chua Chor Huat, headteacher of Singapore’s flagship School of Science and Technology (SST). Mr Chua’s visit marks a milestone in the newly set up link between the two schools. SST and Invicta became partner schools in May 2014 when Invicta headteacher, Mrs Derrick, visited Singapore on a fact finding mission.

SST is a specialised school set up by the Singapore Government following an initiative to promote high level of Science and Technology teaching in secondary education. The school offers a broad and innovative curriculum which allows students to carry out extensive research and applications in Science and Computing, whilst developing them into all rounded young people.

Mr Chua confirmed the cooperation between Invicta and SST during his visit today and said he “was pleased to have set up a strong tie with a like minded secondary school in England.”

“I am here today on my sabbatical to learn the best practice in education in England and feel very lucky to be here at Invicta, an impressive school that is committed to preparing students for the 21st century in which the world is changing fast.”

Invicta’s Headteacher, Mrs Derrick said she was very impressed with SST’s clear vision with an emphasis on Science and Technology, a vision that Invicta passionately shares. She is extremely excited about the “prospect of running joint projects with the staff and students at SST.”

Invicta’s commitment in promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in its diverse curriculum has been well supported by the students and their parents. The school is proud of the phenomenal number of students pursuing STEM subjects at degree level.
