Excellent pastoral care
At Mayville, we believe that pupils learn best when they have self-esteem, self-confidence and self-knowledge and we are dedicated to nurturing pupils who will leave us as talented, confident and empathetic members of our community.
Pupils exhibit increasing levels of confidence and self-esteem over time, fully supported by the school’s excellent pastoral care and welfare system.
They enjoy school, have a keen sense of belonging and thrive in the family atmosphere created in a tight-knit community where all ages mix."

Excellence through nurture
At Mayville, we are very proud of the reputation and high quality of our pastoral care. Our belief is that in 'excellence through nurture' teachers and pupils alike share a commitment to care for one another. The pastoral system embodies this instinct for care and support, embedded within a school that sees itself as a family. We meet together, from the very youngest to the oldest child, in assembly every Monday morning and in the meetings of our whole school Houses. Our care grows from a belief in the potential of every child and a sense of ourselves as a happy community, which knows and supports its members well.
The House system
I have been delighted with the school, staff are approachable, it is creative and caters for each individual child. It really does take the gifts children have and then develops them."
Happy, purposeful and fulfilled pupils
Our culture is founded on carefully integrated schemes of academic and pastoral monitoring.
Specialist advice and support are embedded in the system through the guidance of the Headteacher, the Senior Pastoral Team, the Director of Studies, the Dyslexia Unit and the School Counsellor, all of whom are closely and diversely involved with the fine points of pastoral care and progress.
