Director of Invictus Sixth - Jane Kendrick
We are committed to providing a high quality, forward looking and caring educational experience that enables you to fulfil your potential. We recognise and value achievement within all aspects of Sixth Form life, whether it is in an academic, sporting, creative, personal or social context and are keen to celebrate all our students’ many successes.
Offering a wide variety of Advanced Level and BTEC courses, our smaller group sizes ensure that each student has the support and challenge needed to be successful. You will belong to a tutor group at one of our two base campuses and will receive regular academic mentoring from your personal tutor as well as support with careers and university applications.
We also have an extensive enrichment programme that complements our students’ academic studies, providing you with opportunities to develop new skills, make new friends and extend Sixth Form life.
An additional very exciting new strand of our Sixth Form is the Invictus Sixth Rugby, Netball and Football Academies. Students can study high quality A Levels and BTECs and also receive training and coaching from professional rugby, netball and football players. Rugby, Netball and Football Academy students also have the opportunity to take a number of coaching, first aid, affricating and child safe-guarding qualifications.
Having listened to students’ feedback over the past few years, we have made the decision to reduce the number of campuses where lessons are taught at from six to two, with a satellite. This will mean that students will need to travel between schools much less, compared to previous years,, enabling them to make strong friendships and connections.
Each campus within Invictus Sixth Form has its own dedicated Sixth Form area. We believe that this allows our students the freedom and independence to develop their own sense of identity and confidence, as well as providing the support and challenge needed to ensure that you can meet the demands of Sixth Form study.
We have high expectations of our students in every sense. Studying at Invictus Sixth Form is demanding and advanced level work can be challenging as well as exciting, rewarding and fun. You will be expected to work independently, manage your own time and balance the many demands placed upon you. If you find such a prospect attractive then it is likely that you will enjoy and gain enormously from becoming a student within Invictus Sixth Form.
We welcome applications from Year 11 students at Ellowes Hall, Crestwood, Leasowes, Kinver, Pedmore and Wombourne High Schools as well as from other schools within Wolverhampton, Dudley, Stourbridge, Halesowen, Kidderminster, Bridgnorth and further afield. We have a proven record of success and hope that our Prospectus will encourage you to take the next step in applying for a place and ultimately becoming a student with us.
On behalf of the staff within Invictus Sixth Form, I wish you the very best of luck in your forthcoming GCSE examinations and look forward to meeting you at our Open Day or at interview in the weeks and months to come.
