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.

Pupils spoke very highly of the individual support and encouragement that teachers, learning assistants and the DLEU give them as they develop the skills and confidence to overcome any personal obstacles, and to persevere in pursuing their goals and in making the most of their talents."
