Ethos and Values

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, students will develop certain qualities. They will become knowledgeable, independent, innovative, ambitious, articulate and considerate.

Our approach to students includes three key aspects:  Care, Education and Opportunities.

Our primary aim at Invicta is to ensure our students 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 students 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 recognise the importance of excellent academic results. However, we believe that for our students to be successful and happy in this challenging and competitive world, it is also necessary for them to be equipped with more than good examination results.  Our students need to be creative, to work collaboratively, and to have highly developed personal and social skills.

Invicta Grammar School provides a rich programme of personal development opportunities aimed at giving students diverse and exciting experiences that enable them to be 'rounded' and enthused about the world they live in. Invicta students are passionate about equality, diversity and inclusivity. 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.  We believe that enjoyment and passion will always lead to success!

Promoting British Values - We are fully committed to implementing British Values of democracy:  the rule of law; individual liberty; respect and tolerance for other religions, through our curriculum and in all aspects of our school life. We recognise that these values are not exclusively British, or that in Britain, we successfully uphold them all of the time. However, we do believe that these values are fundamental to what it means to be a ‘good’ human being and as such it is essential that our students accept, promote and act out these values if they are to leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain and make a successful contribution to our society.
