School Minister Recognises Invictus Schools Contribution


On Monday 6th July we had the absolute pleasure of receiving a letter from Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System, Barroness Berridge of the Vale of Catmose!

In the letter the Baroness thanked us for our response to the lockdown following the Covid-19 outbreak. Most satisfying is the specific nature of the recognition; in the letter, which can be found on the link at the bottom of the article, Baroness Berridge commends our online learning platform which has seen hundreds of thousands of student attendance in the past 3 months, you can click here to see our celebratory videos and virtual learning statistics. The Baroness also praised the support we gave to our most vulnerable students, to ensure they have the technology required to access our online platform. There is also a mention for our innovative and comprehensive solution to supporting year 6 children with transition to our schools with our virtual tour and inductions.

The reason we have worked tirelessly during this period is because as Invictus Value One states: Every day, in every way, our students come first, but we do welcome recognition, especially from such a key figure in education.

We certainly feel the praise is well deserved for everyone within the Invictus community, our teachers, support staff, parents, carers and of course students. We are all passionate to continue working collaboratively and effectively in the coming months as we hopefully return to a situation a little more familiar!

Mental Health Impact Day @ Invictus Sixth


Today Year 12 & 13 students from across our 6 campuses were invited to Wombourne High Campus to take part in ‘Mental Health Impact Day’. The aim of the day was to raise awareness of mental health and well being using workshops hosted by special guests and experts.

The day started with our keynote speaker for the day, Lucy Alexander, who shared the story of her son Felix who had sadly took his own life, aged 17, after being tormented by bullies. Lucy spoke from the heart and from experience about the importance sharing feelings and speaking about mental health with others.

Students then selected 3 of the 7 available workshops to attend throughout the day. The topic of workshops were:

Workshop 1 – The benefits of exercise and good mental health/food and nutrition for health

Workshop 2 – Having a healthy relationship with social media

Workshop 3 – How to deal with pressure, stress and anxiety

Workshop 4 – The power of doing

Workshop 5 – Self-belief, self-love and self-promotion

Workshop 6 – Healthy relationships

Workshop 7 – Addiction and the link to mental health

The workshops were selected by our Director of Sixth, Jane Kendrick, to help equip our students with the knowledge, tools and resources to cope with the pressures of modern life.

There is a small gallery from the day available on our Facebook page
