Welcome to The Mandeville School
We are a rapidly improving school of just under 1000 students with growing numbers as we become more popular. For all existing and prospective students, staff and parents this site is an essential source of information on our routines, procedures and activities.
Our students are “Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow”. In other words, the skills that they glean as inquisitive and responsible learners will furnish them with the confidence to grow into adulthood and make a positive impact on the society in which they live as caring, compassionate and creative people. We want our students to be resilient, articulate and positive as well as respectful of others demonstrating modern British values and tolerance. We want our students to make a worthwhile contribution to an evolving world in which they live during their adult years when they leave school. While with us however, we want our students to feel safe and to enjoy their time every day when they come to school.
To achieve these aims, we focus upon “the two pillars of Mandeville”. Our primary ‘pillar’ at The Mandeville School is teaching and learning. Since my appointment in November 2015 we have worked hard to improve the learning experiences that we offer, both in and out of the classroom, and we will continue to do so. At the core of our teaching and learning are structured lessons with consistent application of the ‘non-negotiables’ combined with high quality and innovative teaching methods. We are continuing to develop the independent learning skills of all our students with the recent launch of our Mandeville ‘learning habits’ such as risk-taking, resilience and resourcefulness. We we will continue to use this language of aspiration as part of our commitment to our ‘can do’ philosophy.
As part of our second ‘pillar’, everyone at The Mandeville School is dedicated to providing the very best opportunities for all our students by setting high standards of behaviour. It is with pride that we inculcate traditional values and respect for every member of the community – child and adult. Our students are valued equally and are taught to be kind and tolerant of all others regardless of gender, religion or ethnicity.
These complementary pillars support our students’ outcomes by delivering hiqh quality teaching and ensuring that the learning environment is an orderly one where everyone demonstrates politeness and kindness towards each other. This is a calm and happy school where students are able to make progress in their learning and mature responsibly.
Team work is strong at The Mandeville School: it underpins our success. My dedicated, focused and incredibly supportive staff work tirelessly to ensure all students reach their full potential and enjoy coming to a school which has much to offer. I am openly proud of this. Collectively we are proud of the successful partnership we have built with you as our parents, and together we will continue to ensure that The Mandeville School is a wonderful place to be a student. All of these efforts are fully supported by our Governing Body who are driven by a desire to improve on what we do for the benefit of each and every one of our students.
Whether you are a parent or alumni from the past, an existing parent, or a prospective one, we hope that you will find our website a comprehensive and accessible source of information about The Mandeville School.
