The Governing Body of Invenio Academy in Scunthorpe has passed a resolution to join Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT); a family of schools working across the North of England.
OGAT has celebrated many successes in the past year, and year-on-year has seen the best-ever GCSE results. By changing to an Academy within the OGAT Family of Schools, Invenio will have access to a wealth of support, experience and wider opportunities to allow it to continue to make improvements and raise standards, as has already happened with other schools in the area.
Invenio Principal Richard Briggs says that joining OGAT will enable Invenio to make faster improvement due to the resources and support the Trust can provide.
“The governors’ focus has always been to provide an outstanding education for all our children and we are confident that, in joining the Outwood Family of Schools, we will be able to achieve this at a faster pace.”
“The values and educational goals of Invenio and OGAT are very similar and highly compatible. The OGAT educational model of personalised learning helps all students maximise their involvement in learning and provides a real motivation to be successful. It will enable Invenio to continue to improve the education it provides to young people in North Lincolnshire, with a view to producing independent, thoughtful, resilient learners who are confident and articulate community-minded citizens.”
Michael Wilkins, Academy Principal and Chief Executive of OGAT, says the addition of Invenio to the Outwood Family of Schools will bring many positive benefits and allow for some very exciting collaboration with the existing Outwood Academy Brumby in Scunthorpe. “The commitment of the Governors, staff and students to improvement is excellent, we will provide support to the academy to drive high expectations and raise standards for every student.”
Outwood Grange Academies Trust saw all of its secondary academies achieve record results in excess of 61% (with Outwood Grange Academy achieving 84%) for 5 A*-C including English and Maths and Outwood Academy Brumby in Scunthorpe seeing an amazing 28% increase in their results in just one year from 33% to 61%. We are confident that Invenio has the potential to reach the same high level of performance in a relatively short time.
