Invicta National Academy was set up in 2020 as a result of Covid-19 with the sole purpose of reconnecting children with missed learning through the provision of free, live, online, interactive lessons that were open to all. Now our mission is to help close the opportunity gap by ensuring that every child has access to free or truly affordable top-quality live, online teaching.
