We have high academic standards and strive to achieve the best outcomes for our pupils. We also believe learning should be fun and that happy children flourish in an environment which values and promotes inclusivity, community and a sense of belonging. This is the balance at the heart of our ‘whole child’ approach and we deliver this, in practice, through our independent curriculum, small class sizes and first-rate pastoral provision.
The Mayville difference
Big enough to offer excellent facilities, a diverse curriculum and specialist teaching. Small enough to provide individual care. Our recent ISI inspection rated Mayville 'excellent' in all areas of provision. Find out why.
Based in the heart of Southsea, Mayville High School offers an excellent education for boys and girls. A remarkably warm, inclusive and caring ethos guides all pupils to achieve their own personal best.
Mayville has always offered a ‘whole child’ approach to education, that values every child’s unique talents and interests. Small class sizes enable us to know each pupil and tailor their individual development throughout their school life.
Meet our pupils
We are proud of our pupils' independence, confidence and eloquence, but don't take our word for it! Let them tell you how Mayville is helping them to follow their dreams and realise their aspirations.
Meet our staff
A school is more than its buildings and infrastructure. The character of Mayville is cultivated, in no small part, by the people who work here. We have a team of specialist educators and support staff who are dedicated to ensuring that every child realises their potential.
The Mayville family
More than a school, Mayville is a family. Our very youngest pupils are integrated with the whole school and our older pupils look out for the younger children, offering support and encouragement. Pupils, parents and staff offer an incredible support network, that remains long after leaving the school.
