Invictus Students Receive GCSE Results!

22 August 2019

Mr Tony Bowles, Invictus Education Trust CEO, has this message for our students, staff, parents governors and communities: ‘Another fantastic set of results across the Trust which further confirms our collaborative approach is providing excellent outcomes for the most important people, our students!

Congratulations to each and every one of our students receiving their GCSE results today. There are some incredible performances across our Trust, in terms of both attainment and progress. An area of our results that would like to bring to your attention is the amount of grade 9’s our students have achieved. It is easy to see a grade 9 as an A* equivalent, but it is more than that. Students receiving a grade 9 in any given subject can classify themselves as ‘in the top 2% in the country’! This is a truly remarkable achievement and one of many areas of our results I take great pride in.

Our students always have and always will come first, but I would like to personally thank the staff across our Trust, who go above and beyond on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis to provide outstanding environments for our students to excel in.

I look forward to welcoming many of our students back in September as part of the Invictus Sixth Form’

For anyone that would like to learn more about our Trust please come to visit us at one or more of our open evenings. All details are available on our website or call to arrange a visit on 01384 686586

Crestwood School GCSE Results 2019

Crestwood School would like to congratulate all students on an excellent set of results. There are many incredible individual performances.

In terms of attainment there were outstanding performances from:

Helen Zheng eight top grades (seven or higher!) including two grade 9s! Our Head Girl Hannah Moore also received eight top grades, Cole Roberts and Nyah Mallen with seven top grades each and Daniel Moriarty with six top grades which included three 9s!

At Crestwood we place a huge emphasis on progress, which is the measure of what a student was expected to achieve when they joined us in Year 7 vs what they achieved in Year 11.

Again, we have so many positive performances in terms of progress:

Daniel Moriarty tops our progress chart scoring 2.93, meaning Dan scored almost 3 grades higher across ALL his subjects! Elif Elma and Simrah Basharat achieved progress scores of 2.22 and 1.86 respectively. Molly Mai Summers (1.71) and Harry Barnes (1.66) complete the top 5 students making the most progress at Crestwood.

Across the board our students received 76 top grades (7 or higher) a stunning figure amongst a relatively small cohort. Over two thirds of our students received a pass or better in English.

Ellowes Hall Sports College GCSE Results 2019

91% of students passed English with 75% gaining a good pass and almost a quarter gained grades 7 to 9. Almost three-quarters of students passed both English and Mathematics. A total of fourteen subjects had a pass (4+) rate of over 75%.

Congratulations go all our students on another excellent set of results. Over a quarter of our students gained 8 or more passes with some of the most notable including: Head Girl Natalie Reynoso-Escolar with 12 passes (9, two 8s and five 7s); Sam Field (two 9s, an 8 and three 7s); Rebecca Edge (two 9’s two 8;s and four 7’s); Joshua Parker (two 9s, one 8 and two 7s); Jessica Sayers (two 9.s, one 8 and three 7s); Emily Taylor (9, two 8’s, four 7s and a Dist.*); Zoe Flavell (9, two 8’s, one 7 and a Dist.*) ; Sam Anslow (one 9, two 8s and two 8’s) and finally Head Boy, Jack Oseland, whose results included an 8, five 7’s and a Dist.

Kinver High School is celebrating some outstanding GCSE results from our students in a range of subjects.  High achievers include Connie Williams who achieved 6 grade 9s and 2 grade 8s, Amie Attwood with 4 grade 9s and 3 grade 8s, Cormac Wolstenholme and Katie Gwinnell who similarly achieved 4 grade 9s and 3 grade 8s and Alicia Rawson who achieved 2 grade 9s and 4 grade 8s.  The school has continued to consolidate its strong academic performance from previous years with provisional figures suggesting that 65% of students gained 4+ in English and Maths with 46% achieving a grade 5 or above in English and Maths.  Both figures sit comfortably above last year’s national figures.

Headteacher Mr Daniel Taylor stated, “We are delighted to see the school continue to build on last year’s results.  The outcomes for our students are testament to the hard work and commitment shown by the students during their studies and throughout a particularly challenging examination series.  Our students should be proud of what they have achieved.”

Leasowes High School GCSE Results 2019

Leasowes High School, Halesowen, a member of Invictus Education Trust, are pleased with their GCSE results this year.  In particular they have seen an increase in the achievement of the top grades including the prestigious grade 9s, and some excellent results in Science, both at combined and individual.  We would congratulate each student on their successes, and thank the committed staff and parents in supporting them with their achievement.


There have been some excellent individual results with students.  These include Aysha Shaik (four grade 9s and four grade 8s), Yaseen Kaid (four grade 9s, two grade 8s and two grade 7s), Kourtney Squires Purnell (one grade 9, five grade 8s and two grade 7s), James Moore (one grade 9, four grade 8s and two grade 7s), Alisha Chumber (two grade 9s, two grade 8s and two grade 7s) and Lara Albutt (two grade 9s, two grade 8s and a grade 7).

Pedmore High School GCSE Results 2019

There were many notable achievements once again at Pedmore High School on GCSE results day. Head Boy Ethan celebrated achieving 4 grade 9s and 2 grade 8s on his way to gaining an overall Progress 8 score of 2.20. Head Girl Charlotte also excelled, achieving 1 grade 9, 3 grade 8s and 2 grade 7s and gained a Progress 8 score of 0.84.

Other notable success stories are Faizah, who gained 1 grade 9, 3 grade 8s and a grade 7 which gave her a Progress 8 score of 2.71 and Willow, who achieved 1 grade 9, 3 grade 8s and 4 grade 7s. Of particular note were the remarkable grades achieved by Ahsen, who arrived in the UK in 2015 with very limited English. This incredible young lady achieved 1 grade 8, 4 grade 7s and 3 grade 6s. Similarly, Nastaran joined Pedmore in 2015 when her family moved here from Iran; like Ahsen, Nastaran has managed to achieve exceptional grades whilst learning a new language and settling into a new culture.

Many students have had to work harder than some of their colleagues to overcome different barriers to learning. Lotte, Logan, Ben and Scott have worked tirelessly to make such good progress, and their grades are testament to their dedication and the commitment of our wonderful team of Teaching Assistants.

Head teacher, Mr Lloyd said, ‘We are very proud of all of our young people. The grades they have secured will enable them all to progress onto the next stage of their education with confidence. I would also like to thank all of the parents and staff who have supported our students during their time at Pedmore.’
