Welcome to Mayville High School

Mayville has been at the heart of Southsea life since 1897 and, to this day, we continue to follow our founding philosophy of educating the 'whole child' – 'The head. The hands. The heart'. Our ethos serves to instil a life-long love of learning in every pupil. Throughout our Nursery, Junior, Senior & Online Schools, studies and activities are inclusive and structured to meet the needs, challenge the expectations and exceed the goals of each individual.

School calendar

During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have had to postpone or cancel many of our usual events, assemblies, fixtures and trips. Parents' evenings are currently being held remotely, via Zoom. We are doing our utmost to find inventive ways of keeping you involved in school life and share in your children's performances and successes – many of which have been filmed remotely and shared on our social media channels. Please watch this space to keep updated.
