Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school.
The planned strike for Tuesday 14 October has been cancelled, we can confirm that the Academy will remain open.
Update - Further to the letter below we can now confirm that the gas supply has been fully restored to the Academy. Dear parents/carers, You will probably be aware that there was no gas supply in the Academy on Thursday 18th. This was due to a supply pump which served the Academy breaking down at approximately 7.00pm Wednesday 17th. Having checked with our senior Health and Safety advisors that it was safe to do so, and rather than close the school and have students lose a day of learning, site staff and catering staff worked late into the evening in order to ensure that we could provide students with catering in the form of sandwiches. We currently have the contractors on site working to remedy the problem. We apologise for any inconvenience, however, we are sure that you appreciate the efforts which have gone into keeping the site open. Regards Angela Hull Principal
As Invenio Academy (prior to conversion), the school achieved improving results in 2014 adding 18% on last year’s performance and is now above the government floor target even though this year’s performance measures are harder than ever before. "Sir Michael Wilkins, Chief Executive of Outwood Grange Academies Trust, said he is delighted with the leadership of the Executive Principal, Martyn Oliver and the Principal, Richard Briggs as students achieve excellent results. We are proud of our students and the support given by their parents/carers, all of the staff at the academy and the governors". Martyn Oliver, Executive Principal, said “These are marvellous results for the students of Invenio Academy and I want to thank them, their parents/carers and all of the staff at the academy for achieving these results. I am delighted that 42% of students achieved the very difficult new performance measure of 5+ A*-C including GCSE English, maths and now a further GCSE with only a maximum of two vocational results counting. This is now above the government’s floor target of 40% and is an improvement of 18% on last year’s figures! The future for Invenio Academy, which converts to Outwood Academy Foxhills on the 1st September is bright. These results reflect the hard work of everyone involved and I wish all of our students every success in the future”
