Vision and Ethos
Harris Invictus Academy Croydon is one of the 10 campuses that make up the Harris Federation’s Sixth Form.
Our sixth form opened in September 2019 and relaunched with a broader range of subjects and pathways in September 2021.
At Harris Invictus we are committed to nurturing the next generation of leaders, who have successfully developed a strong sense of independence, increased resilience, and a passion for learning.
With learning across a number of academic pathways, such as the sciences and social sciences, as well as vocational pathways in Sport or Business, our students are provided with the academia, skills and confidence to prepare them for life in the 21st century.
Our students are excellent academy ambassadors, taking up positions in student leadership, and have built relationships with the wider community in which they are a part of. Past students have gone on up to take on apprenticeships at BMW, and degrees in Biomedical sciences and Computer Science amongst others.
