Invicta - Ofsted Outstanding!

We are delighted to announce that Invicta Grammar School has received an Ofsted grading of Outstanding following an inspection in April 2024.

Inspectors praised the school, stating, "This is an exceptional school where pupils flourish."  

Their report highlights that, "the school offers an outstanding level of education for pupils at all key stages, including in the sixth form.” It also notes that the curriculum “is highly ambitious and meticulously crafted."

This achievement is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students, staff, and the wider school community. We are incredibly proud of this recognition and remain committed to maintaining the highest standards of education and fostering an environment where every pupil can thrive.

Mrs Van Beales, Headteacher at Invicta Grammar School, said: "I am thrilled for our students, staff, parents, and carers on receiving this well-deserved accolade. We are privileged to fulfil our moral mandate of inspiring and preparing our students for life. While it is humbling to receive this recognition, we remain committed to continually improving and upholding the highest standards for our wonderful students.”

Richard Hayden, CEO of Valley Invicta Academies Trust (VIAT), said: “I am extremely proud of everyone at Invicta Grammar School, and VIAT, for this brilliant result. As a Trust, we work tirelessly to provide the very best for our students across every one of our schools.  This Ofsted report rightly reflects the hard work and dedication of students and their families, governors and staff.”
