Our Curriculum ...

"We were impressed with the rigorous attention
to the quality of teaching."

The Good Schools Guide 20th Edition

Invicta home image 9 Invicta home image 14 Invicta home image 12  

At Invicta Grammar School we recognise the importance of excellent academic results. However, we believe that for your daughter to be successful and happy in this challenging and competitive world it is also necessary for her to be equipped with more than good results.  She needs to be creative, to work cooperatively, and to have highly developed personal and social skills.

It is our aim that during her time at Invicta, your daughter will develop certain qualities. She will become knowledgeable, independent, innovative, ambitious, articulate and considerate.

To support your daughter in developing such qualities, we have incorporated into our teaching and our pastoral system an exciting programme of ‘Thinking Skills’ and ‘Habits for Success’.  The importance of being able to think well is at the heart of the Invicta ethos and the thinking skills strategies allow your daughter to be fully involved in her learning and to take increasing responsibility for her own learning as she progresses through the school.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of our thinking skills strategy is the Habits for Success.  The Habits for Success are 16 characteristics that are shared by successful people who are at the ‘top of the game’ in whatever field of work it might be: inventors, stockbrokers, lawyers, fashion designers, doctors, film directors.   It has been shown that people who are successful have certain shared qualities: qualities such as persistence, thinking flexibly, communicating clearly and taking responsible risks. It is this quality that we believe it is important for your daughter to develop. 

We recognise that the requirements of the worlds are changing.  Today, more than ever it is essential for young people to develop the dispositions and the awareness that will enable them to enjoy and fulfil challenges both in their learning now and in the future.  We will be working with you and your daughter to help her develop these skills and characteristics, because we believe that students who are confident, innovative, persistent, independent and creative will become young adults who will be very well equipped for life ahead.

For further information on our curriculum, contact the school office and they can connect you with Deputy Head in Charge of the Curriculum. Email:office@invicta.viat.org.uk or telephone: 01622 755856.
