Invicta Students Made Exceptional Progress at GCSE

The school performance table published by the Department of Education on 25 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 a Progress 8 score of +0.73. This indicates that our students achieved nearly three quarters of a grade higher across the eight GCSE subjects than their peers of the same ability.

The performance table data places Invicta, once again, as the best school in Maidstone and one of the best schools in Kent and England.

League table 2018

Invicta is one of best 25 state schools in the South East

The Sunday Times newspaper published the Schools Guide 2018 which informed parents of the best schools in the country and specific regions or towns. 

In the latest publication, Invicta is once again recognised as the best school in Maidstone and also the 23rd best state school in the South East of England. The Sunday Times Parent Power Schools Guide 2018 ranks schools by GCSE and A level examination results. It also gives parents statistics on university destinations of school leavers.

Invicta is one of the few secondary schools in Kent being chosen for the top 100 schools in England and top 25 in the South East. In fact, only 4 non super selective schools in Kent achieved these rankings.

Julie Derrick, head teacher, was thrilled by the recognition. She said: "Invicta staff, students and parents work very hard together and deserve this accolade. At Invicta, we do not sit back on our success, indeed the school has a constant drive to improve ourselves, our students are very well taught and provided with a unique plethora of opportunities to enrich and develop themselves into well rounded citizens of the 21st century. I am proud of our students' achievement and grateful to the hard working staff and supportive parents, who have made Invicta the special school it is today."

Invicta students achieved 75% A*-B grades at A level and 57% A*/A or 9-7 grades at GCSE in 2017. Students also achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.74, meaning that they scored, in every subject, nearly 3/4 of a grade higher than their peers nationally of the same ability.

Invicta students also raised nearly £50,000 for charity in 2016-2017. Besides the outstanding academic achievements, Invicta is also known as a leading school in opportunities for students in music, the arts, sports, close links with universities, businesses, local community and international links with schools from over 20 countries.

Invicta is thrilled for their students’ future once again, as Year 13 students achieved the best set of results in the school’s history with 75% 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 an inspirational amount of money for both local and national charities by raising over £50,000 in 2016-2017.  

Invicta is very proud of the fact that the students have achieved 213 A* and A grades. Out of a cohort of 148 students, 100% A* - E grades with 10.6% A* grades were obtained.

This year, we are delighted that more than a third (34%) of all our Year 13 students achieved A* to B grade in two or more facilitating subjects. This has increased from the 25.4% figure last year; a great achievement which has provided life-changing opportunities for more of our students to access the Russell Group universities. 

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

Verity Adams - Medicine, Leeds
Cara Birchall - Medicine, Southampton  
Elina Body - Veterinary Science, Liverpool
Claire Tipton - Law, Cambridge
Georgia Robb - Veterinary Science, Liverpool
Jessica Gladwell - Medicine, Nottingham
Lena Wragg - Medicine, Sussex

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 wonderful 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.  It has been a real delight to see their smiling faces as they have had fun along the way!”

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

Jessica Fitzpatrick,  Rhiannon Thomas,  Emily Read,  Abigail Vant,  Claire Tipton,  Elina Body,  Curtis Bailey,  
Vojtech Jirasek,  Molly Reeves,  Amy Quinnell,  Emma Davison,  Pablo John,  Keri Mo,  Tim Protheroe,  Cara Birchall, Jessica Gladwell,  Tabatha Baylis,  Jessie Hammond.

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 57% A*/A grades, totalling over 700 A*/A grades. More than half of all the reformed GCSE grades are 7, 8 or 9 grades; a superb achievement despite the high volatility this year. 

Julie Derrick, Headteacher, commented ‘We are exceptionally proud of our students and staff.  Their results are testament to their dedication and commitment in a time when we have huge changes in educational reform, with moving grade boundaries and substantially more rigour.  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.”

The percentage of students who have 8 A*/A grades has increased to 45% which is a phenomenal achievement.  In addition to this, our trend for both consistency and continual improvement is cemented with the following:

• 68 students achieved 8 or more A*/A or 9 – 7 grades.

• 115 students achieved 5 or more A*/A or 9 – 7 grades.

The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students:

• Maddie Brant achieved 8 A* grades and 26 out of 27 possible points for English and Mathematics.
• Meesa Rai achieved 7 A* grades and 26 points in English and Mathematics.
• Rebecca Lawrence achieved 8A* grades and 25 points in English and Mathematics.
• Charley Cawe achieved 7 A* grade and 25 points in English and Mathematics.
• Twins Caitlin and Bryony Boeshart-Thomas achieved 16 A and A* grades together with 7s and 8s in their English and Mathematics GCSEs.

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 five students achieved A*/A grades.  This is an amazing achievement which aptly endorses Invicta’s commitment to developing well rounded students.
