Results

Invicta Students Made Exceptional Progress at GCSE

Invicta Students Made Exceptional Progress at GCSE

The provisional figures published by the Department of Education on 19 January showed that Invicta is among the best schools in Kent in progress made at the end of Year 11. The new accountability measures – Attainment 8 and Progress 8 – indicate the attainment and progress made in eight GCSE subjects including English, mathematics and English Baccalaureate subjects with English and mathematics being double counted.

Invicta’s students achieved an Attainment 8 score of 72.2 points in 2018. This means our students achieved an average grade of more than a 7 or A at GCSE. The Progress 8 score of +0.96, compared to the -0.09 average score in Kent, indicates that our students achieved almost a grade higher across the eight GCSE subjects than their peers of the same ability.

The Sunday Times newspaper also published its own League Table recently, placing Invicta the 76th best secondary school in the UK. Invicta is the only school in Maidstone that was included in the top 10 schools in Kent. Invicta’s performance is similar to that of some super-selective schools in the county.

Invicta is One of Best UK Secondary Schools 2018

Invicta is One of Best UK Secondary Schools 2018

Invicta Grammar School is ranked 76 in the Sunday Times Parent Power Best UK Schools Guide 2019, up from 94 the previous year.

This table places Invicta the best grammar school in Maidstone by a long way. Its performance is also comparable with the super selective schools in Kent. Invicta admits any students who pass the Kent selection test whereas super selective schools only admit the students with the highest pass marks.

Invicta students make exceptional progress during their school career. In 2018, 74% of all A Level grades were A*-B, and 65% GCSE grades were A*, A or 7, 8 and 9. The examination success together with our Character Education and Opportunities Programme, which is unique to Invicta, fully prepares students for higher education and employment. These achievements were attained alongside the outstanding charity and community work. In 2018, the school raised over £50,000 for charity.

We are thrilled to have all the hard work by students, parents and teachers recognised in this way.  We have a wonderful family ethos in our approach to supporting students ‘be the very best they can be.’  This outcome highlights that by working together, our school community does exactly that!  We are also particularly proud of the fact that our curriculum is broad, balanced and unique in its approach; enabling students to explore new interests along with broadening their horizons.  We are aware that examination results are important, but it is equally important to get the balance of academia and opportunity if we are to prepare our students for their very important next steps!

A Level Results

Invicta Grammar School’s A Level students achieve an outstanding set of results once again!

Invicta is thrilled for their students’ future once again, as Year 13 students achieved superb results with 73% of all grades being A*, A or B grades this year. These grades reflect the dedication and hard work of our students who have also raised over £50,000 - an exceptional amount of money for both local and national charities in 2017-2018.

Invicta is proud to be voted the best school in Kent by parents in the Real School’s Guide survey earlier this summer.  Our examination results are an apt reflection of this parental confidence.

Out of a cohort of 156 Year 13 students, nearly 200 A* and A grades were achieved, with 100% A* - E grades and 10.5% A* grades being obtained.

This year, we are delighted that more than a third (35%) of all our Year 13 students achieved A* to B grade in two or more facilitating subjects. This is a remarkable achievement which has provided life-changing opportunities for more of our students than ever before to access the Russell Group universities.

We are also delighted to report that a significant number of students have successfully secured Cambridge, Medicine, Veterinary Science and Dentistry places:

Victoria Starling – will study Music at Cambridge.

Muskaan Ali – will study Dentistry at King’s College.

Alice Hill – will study Dentistry at Cardiff

Mae Jones – will study Veterinary Science at Surrey.

Hannah Stanley – will study Veterinary Science at Surrey.

Katie Walker – will study Medicine at Nottingham.

Julie Derrick, Headteacher, commented “I am extremely proud and excited about the wonderful futures for our students, given the outstanding examination results that they have achieved this year. More Invicta students than ever before will head off to the best universities; continuing the exciting journey that they started with us seven years ago. I am grateful to the hard work and dedication of all the staff at Invicta and the invaluable support of our parents. I am proud of our partnership which has greatly benefited our hard working students.”

“Our students have yet again risen to the challenge of combining their own academic achievement 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.”

 The school is delighted with notable achievements for the following students who obtained the following combination of A* grades:

Bryony Jenner – 3 A* grades

Sophie Scott – 3 A* grades

Hannah Stanley – 3 A* grades

Eleanor Kemp – 2 A* and 2 A grades

Honor Bolton – 2 A* and 1 A grades

Daisy Hillier – 2 A* and 1 A grades

Eden Reynolds – 2 A* and 1 A grades

Alanna Shand – 2 A* and 1 A grades

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. Twenty one students achieved A*/A grades in the Extended Project Qualification. This is an amazing achievement which aptly endorses Invicta’s commitment to developing well rounded students.

GCSE Level Results are yet again outstanding!

GCSE Level Results are yet again outstanding!

Invicta Grammar School is delighted with another fantastic set of GCSE results!

Students at Invicta Grammar School achieved not only an outstanding set of A Level results but also gained a superb set of GCSE results with 65% of all grades are 7 to 9 or A*/A grades; a superb achievement despite the high volatility of the reformed GCSE this year.

Most GCSE subjects were reformed this year and students are awarded 9 to 1 grades instead of A* to U. In the new grading system, grades 7 or higher are considered grades A or higher in the old system.

Julie Derrick, Headteacher, commented ‘We are exceptionally proud of our students and staff.  The examination results are testament to their dedication and commitment in a time when we have a great deal of changes in educational reform, with moving grade boundaries and substantially more rigour in the content of all subjects.  It is a real pleasure to see so many happy young women excited at their achievements and to be returning to Invicta for the next stage of their life journey. Putting these results together with our excellent A Level results makes Invicta the number one choice of secondary school in Maidstone.”

Invicta is proud to be voted the best school in Kent by parents in the Real School’s Guide survey earlier this summer.  Today’s results are an apt reflection of this parental confidence.

100% of our Year 11 students achieved the benchmark of 5 grades at A*-C and 4 to 9 including English and Mathematics.  In addition to this, our trend for both consistency and continual improvement is cemented with the following:

    67 students achieved 8 or more A*/A or 9 – 7 grades.
    114 students achieved 5 or more A*/A or 9 – 7 grades.
    9 students achieved 9 grades 8, 9 or A*
    27 students achieved 8 grades 8, 9 or A*.
