Governance, reporting & policies

We remain true to the principles of our founder – to educate the 'whole child': the head, the heart, the hands – whilst constantly evolving to meet the educational needs of a modern world. Our trustees and governance structure are essential to this process.

Mission statement

Mayville believes that pupils learn best when they have self-esteem, self-confidence and self-knowledge and we are dedicated to producing pupils who will leave us as talented, confident and empathetic members of our community.

Mayville believes that it is the happy child who will learn and the one with self-respect who will approach academic studies positively.

We are the school for the individual because we value each pupil for who they are and for what they can contribute to the school community.

We understand that boys and girls learn differently. Therefore, we teach boys and girls in single gender groups in core subjects to ensure we maximise the potential of every pupil. Mixed pastoral bases run throughout the School. Mixed curriculum classes occur in all other areas of the curriculum.

We admit pupils from a very wide ability band and offer tailored educational programmes for able, gifted and talented pupils, as well as for those who need a considerable amount of learning support.

We understand that children have different learning styles and seek to provide them with access to information through a wide variety of strategies.

We care about our pupils and seek to provide a strong, secure base, where they will gain the skills to meet the challenges of the wider world.

We intend that Mayville pupils, when they leave us, will have reached their academic potential, will be self-confident and will have strong social skills. They will have enjoyed a broad-based education that includes a wide variety of creative and sporting activities by participation in our academies – Mayville Academy of Performing Arts and Mayville Sporting Academy.

Mayville pupils will be tolerant, responsible and supportive members of the society into which they will emerge as young adults.

School Inspection

Mayville High School is inspected by ISI (The Independent Schools Inspectorate).

The ISI is a body approved for the purpose of inspection under Section 162A of the Education Act 2002. As such, they report to the Department for Education (DfE) on the extent to which schools meet statutory requirements. ISI is the agency responsible for the inspection of schools in membership of the Associations of the Independent Schools Council (ISC).

ISI Inspections of Independent Schools are required to:

Report to the DfE the extent to which ISC schools comply with the Education (Independent School Standards) (England) Regulations 2010 and later amendments (referred to as the ‘regulatory requirements')

Where applicable, report to DfE on compliance with the requirements of the National Minimum Standards (NMS) for boarding schools

Where applicable, report to Ofsted on compliance with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 including the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Assure ISC Associations that their member schools maintain the quality of provision expected

Help schools to improve, and inform parents of the quality of member schools

ISI inspection is for the benefit of the pupils in the schools and seeks to improve the quality and effectiveness of their education and of the care for their welfare. Inspection also provides objective and reliable reports on the quality of schools and, by placing reports in the public domain, makes the information available to parents, associations, government and the wider community. In this way, it helps schools, their staff and governors/proprietors to recognise and build on their strengths and to identify and remedy any weaknesses.

The last inspection was in January 2020.
