Invictus Education Trust are, once again, bursting with pride as they celebrate Year 11 students’ impressive achievements in the first set of validated results since 2019. The impact of Covid and the interruptions that this has caused have been truly unmeasurable, yet our students are the ones who, until this summer’s exam series, had not sat any external exams because of the interruptions arising from Covid. We are extremely proud of both our Year 11 students, our team of staff’s resilience and our remarkable set of 2022 results. Our students’ results demonstrate that despite the disruption and challenges recent years have inevitably brought us, we have been relentless in our focus, drive and determination to succeed, in order to improve the life chances and opportunities of the students we serve.
The fantastic results of our Year 11 students demonstrate the quality of education our staff provided. The results of our Year 11 students, in both our academic and vocational qualifications, are testament to our Invictus mission and values: to put the interests of our students first. As a result of excellent careers information, advice and guidance provided by Invictus staff and independent professionals, our students have secured positive future steps for themselves with many of our Year 11 students returning to us to join Invictus Sixth.
Tony Bowles, CEO of Invictus Education Trust, commented: “I would like to thank all of the staff, students and their parents and carers, who have worked together as a team throughout to achieve these well-deserved results under the most challenging of circumstances. Congratulations to you all on your hard-earned success. These results build further on a few of our schools’ successful Ofsted inspections this academic year.”
Crestwood are delighted to celebrate the success of this year’s Year 11 GCSE and BTEC results.
In spite of the barriers and adversities that they have encountered over their GCSE and BTEC studies our students have risen to the challenge and obtained some fantastic results.
We are pleased to announce that 46% of final grades were grades 7, 8 and 9 and over 50% of students achieved a grade 5 or better in five or more subjects.

We are so proud and pleased that all of the efforts and hard work put in by students has been recognised. This year group have had such a fractured time over their GCSE studies they should be rightly proud of their achievements.
