Harris Invictus Academy 'Outstanding' in First Ever Ofsted Report

INVICTUS STUDENTHarris Invictus Academy in Croydon has been rated ‘outstanding’ in every category following its first ever Ofsted inspection.

The academy is only the seventh secondary free school in London to be rated ‘outstanding’.

The Ofsted report praised the academy’s staff, students and atmosphere. Inspectors said:

  • “The quality of teaching has a very strong impact on pupils’ achievements. High expectations, well-structured learning and the effective use of good resources mean that pupils receive high-quality lessons.”
  • “Senior leaders, governors and the Federation are aspirational for the school and its pupils.”
  • “Pupils are extremely well turned out and have first-rate manners. They are very proud of their school and of their achievements.”
  • “The teaching of literacy and numeracy is very effective. In all classrooms, literacy has a very strong presence with the week’s literacy target displayed prominently.”
  • “The school is a vibrant place in which all pupils are enabled to achieve their potential.”

The report also notes that disadvantaged students “make very strong progress from their different starting points” and that leaders “are quick to pick up discrepancies in learning and put in place successful strategies to help pupils overcome difficulties”.

Having opened in 2014 with a Year 7 cohort, Harris Invictus Academy is yet to have its first GCSE results. Nonetheless, Ofsted inspectors are optimistic about future examinations, stating that “the progress of current pupils suggests that they are being prepared very effectively for their examinations at the end of Year 11.”

Carol-Anne Alcock, Executive Principal of Harris Invictus Academy, said:

“This report recognises the determination and positivity that is so crucial to our work at Harris Invictus Academy. I must pay tribute to the hard work of our staff and students who have achieved all of this in temporary accommodation. I know that moving into our new facilities next September will give us a further boost as we continue to grow year on year.”
