Welcome to Villiers High School
I am delighted to be the Headteacher of Villiers High School. With a history dating back to 1907, Villiers is a school with one foot in the past but both eyes firmly on the future. We provide a nurturing environment, strong pastoral care and excellent learning, both in and out of classroom which enables students to leave Villiers with the right qualifications, skills and qualities to be highly successful in their future careers and adult lives. It is an 11-19 co-educational school with students from a variety of religions, faiths and countries. They work, play and flourish together in our encouraging and supportive learning community, developing understanding and respect for each other. All visitors to the school comment on the warmth of welcome, harmonious atmosphere around the school and positive attitudes of our students.
We have grown in size and popularity over the last few years, a reflection of our fantastic achievements. Currently we have over 1100 pupils and nearly 120 teaching and ancillary staff. This means that whilst we are small enough to retain a friendly atmosphere and know everyone’s face, the school is large enough to offer a full range of academic and vocational subjects taught by specialist teachers.
The school also has a rapidly improving Sixth Form with students taking a variety of Advanced Level and BTEC courses. Academically, we establish good working habits in an environment that is wholly conducive to learning and study. Our results have been improving year on year and our progress data has put our performance in the top quartile of all schools around the country. This demonstrates that we are bringing about effective learning whilst maintaining concern for the individual. Although we take great pride in our high achievers, we are particularly proud that all of our students leave with sound qualifications on which to build their future.
“An outstanding learning and personal development experience for all in a harmonious and supportive community”
We aim to:
Inculcate a love of learning, a growth mind set and mutual respect
Ensure that our students leave our school with the qualifications, skills and experience they need to be successful in the future
Have equality of opportunity for all
Personalise the curriculum and support to tailor the needs of our students
Celebrate individual achievements no matter in which field or how small.
“For life not school we learn”
“Non scholae sed vitae discimus”
The school promotes an environment of mutual respect where all members of the community are equally valued and work together in an atmosphere of tolerance and good humour. The values that permeate all our work within Villiers Community are to promote the following:
Honesty, Empathy, Ambition, Respect and Tolerance
We expect are students to be the best ambassadors for Villiers. We expect all members of our community to work hard and be supportive of each other. Our students are expected to be smartly dressed, well behaved both in and out of school. We want everyone to enjoy coming in to school, work hard and make the most of opportunities presented to them.
This gives a brief outline of what Villiers aims to achieve, but the best way to find out more is to see the school in action. Visits can be arranged; just telephone the school office and we will arrange a tour of the school for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to Villiers.

Your future starts here.
At Villiers Sixth Form, we value and celebrate our achievements together. We are a community of aspiration, aiming to achieve academic excellence through outstanding teaching and learning, underpinned by a relentless focus on achieving the best.
The Sixth Form at Villiers High School is a community of learners built around shared values. We believe that each member of that community should be respected and appreciated for the contribution they make to the whole. Students are supported by their teachers and tutors to reach their potential.
At Villiers we uphold the right of every student to learn, form relationships, develop skills and become a productive and involved member of society. We are strongly committed to equality and inclusion, and encourage students to engage with each other, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality or disability.
The Villiers Sixth Form offers a rich and varied curriculum which reflects the needs of our learners as well as our ambition for their futures. The curriculum is built around a core of respected academic A-Levels and BTEC qualifications, supplemented by a diverse and engaging enrichment programme.
The Villiers Sixth Form has high aspirations for all its students. Years 12 and 13 are stepping-stones to further and higher education, and form the foundation for lifelong learning. We are rightly proud of the high proportion of students who are successful in gaining admission to Russell Group Universities, and we aspire to 100% success rates for overall University admissions.
