Students are in one of four faculties at Harris Invictus Academy Croydon: Courage, Undefeated, Ambition, Resilience.
Faculties help to build our identity and reflect the mission statement and beliefs of our academy. We are courageous, ambitious, resilient and undefeated. We symbolise the meaning of the poem, Invictus, by William Ernest Henley, which Nelson Mandela attached to the wall in his prison cell on Robben Island.
We hope the faculty names show why we are trying to help educate children to become strong, resourceful, intelligent future leaders.
