At Invicta Grammar School, we recognise the importance of excellent academic outcome. However, we believe that for 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.  They need to be creative, to be able to work collaboratively, and to have highly developed personal and communication skills.

It is our aim that during their time at Invicta, students will become knowledgeable, independent, innovative, ambitious, articulate and considerate. They will develop skills and character traits such as leadership, organisation, resilience, and communication. Our students also aspire to aim high to achieve their full potential and be nurtured to become a life-long learner who is prepared for the modern world.

We seek to challenge and stimulate the minds of our students through outstanding teaching, excellent opportunities to learn beyond the classrooms and a rich and balanced curriculum. We are proud of our curriculum as it provides challenge, pace, and variety at all levels to suit individual students. We aim to prepare, challenge and inspire our students with our curriculum.

Our curriculum demonstrates our firm belief in social justice, ensuring that all students have access to the best learning opportunities in and outside the classroom.

We design our curriculum to provide our students with an exciting, stimulating and challenging learning journey throughout their school career at Invicta. The Key Stage 3 curriculum covers beyond the national curriculum and aims to equip them with a broad range of knowledge, skills and the academic discipline together with the keenness to learn new things. The Foundation Year programme is an exciting bridging year laying a firm foundation for GCSE; it is during this year that our students will benefit from our bespoke programme of study that goes beyond the National Curriculum. During Year 10 and 11, students will work towards at least 10 GCSEs to include Triple Science, a Humanities subject and a Language. All Invicta students take the English Baccalaureate and follow a comprehensive Personal Development programme. Our Key Stage 4 curriculum goes beyond the requirement of GCSEs, equipping students with oracy, thinking, research and leadership skills. It encourages students to draw links within and across subjects and relate learning with real life, making the learning journey very stimulating. Our students study a wide range of subjects for GCSE, from Art Textiles to Music, Classical Civilisation to Food and Nutrition, Photography to Dance. All students are encouraged to opt for a creative subject and make the most of the plethora of opportunities to learn beyond the classroom.

The A level curriculum offers a broad choice of almost 30 subjects for students to choose from, to include the Extended Project Qualification and our bespoke A Step Ahead programme which, along with our enriching Personal Development programme, prepares students with work related skills for life in modern Britain.

We believe our academic curriculum is challenging, exciting and designed specifically for our highly motivated and able students, whilst catering for the variety of needs from our individual students.
