Acids and Alkalis. Take bees and wasps, the two villains of summer days – one bumbling but painful, the other evil-looking and vicious. These insects are also chemical opposites. The sting of a bee is acidic, whilst that of a wasp is alkali!

Try this at home experiment. What happens to the level of water if you add salt to a glass of water? The water level will go down. Why? the dissolved ions from the salts in the water allow the solvent molecules to order themselves better.

Mr Waters’ favourite word is “spaghettification” and is the name given to the process caused by a black hole “swallowing” an object as it draws the object out into a long, thin spiral of atoms. What is your favourite word?

Sport

Invicta will have a new 6 court sports hall in 2020!

More information to follow shortly.

  

Invicta Grammar school has a wealth of talented students who are excel across nine core sports and activities. Owing to the number of eager pupils throughout the school, Invicta is able to offer 1st and 2nd teams in most sports and year group levels. The school supports the continued progress of all ages through a dedicated extra curricular program which builds upon the core skills students develop through Physical Education lessons.

Invicta is looking to introduce a wider variety of sports including Korfball to add to the variety and opportunities that our students already experience. Swimming, gymnastics and trampoline teams are also readily supported.

One of the key aims of the Physical Education and the Sports department at Invicta is to promote the key concepts of not only sport for all but the lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle. We have recently introduced Les Mills exercise sessions for students of all ages across the school in the hope that they will find an exercise session which they find enjoyable and can continue through to adult life. 

Several of our students excel in their achievements across numerous sports. Invicta prides itself on supporting individual and team athletes on their search for success as well as promoting PE as an engaging and enjoyable subject for all students to participate in but having a range of competitive and non-competitive activities. 

We have run overseas tour programmes to various countries including Spain, Malta, Barbados, Sri Lanka and Disneyland. During these trips, students have had the chance to have professional coaching and fixtures against both local schools and schools across the globe. Owing to excellent support and enthusiasm from both the students and staff alike, these tours will continue for years to come with other destinations and sports being included in order to provide students with a rich experience.


Extra Opportunities

Sports Leaders

Level One and Level Two Sports Leader’s Award – During Key Stage 4 students are offered the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through sport. Through this course students learn to effectively communicate, organise, plan and lead which not only holds them in good stead within their own sports and activities but also in every day life. Through the school’s strong community links, Invicta students are able to work within local primary schools, help at extracurricular clubs and local sports clubs in order to help raise the standards and importance of sport in the local community.

PE Prefects
Invicta are lucky enough to host one prefect per year group who are hand picked by the Physical Education department. These students take a lead role in the Physical Education department during lessons, through the organisation of inter form competitions and supporting extra curricular clubs.
