Welcome to Vyners School
Welcome to Vyners School, a mixed 11-18 Academy.
Our aim is simple. We want to be an outstanding school in every sense of the word and we want to be confident that ‘hand on heart’ 100% of our students get a better deal here than they would in any other school.
Our school values: Community, Aspiration, Respect and Endeavour, underpin everything we do and were developed in conjunction with students, staff, parents and governors in 2013.
At Vyners, we successfully combine a 21st Century education with traditional high expectations of uniform, behaviour and standards.
We pride ourselves on the positive relationships that exist in the school and the sense of being part of a happy community.
We are a genuinely comprehensive school, believing that all students bring their own talents to our community. We value our students equally and take great care to make sure that every one of them is happy, secure and successful.
We strive to develop ‘Rounded and Grounded’ young people, ready to make a positive contribution to the world. I firmly believe that the success of a school should be measured by where its students are five to ten years after they leave it. We have a strong tradition of our students attending some of the best universities in the country and our alumni can be found in a wide range of exciting careers. Many of them remain committed to Vyners School and return to support the current students as they strive for excellence.
Mr James M Heale, Headteacher
Community Our traditional house system unites students from different year groups in sporting, musical and dramatic endeavours as well as extensive fund-raising activities.
Visitors to the school and those that have been part of Vyners for a number of years are all in agreement that it is a unique, friendly and supportive environment.
Aspiration Our school motto is ‘Striving for Excellence’ and everyone in our community is encouraged to challenge themselves to be the best that they can be. We encourage students to have big goals, stretching themselves beyond their comfort zone on a daily basis in lessons and during enrichment activities.
Respect As a school we have traditional values and high expectations of behaviour, uniform, good manners and attendance. These are the non-negotiable foundations of our school, modelled by all students and staff.
Endeavour Learning by its very nature is hard and we want to encourage students who are resilient, not afraid to take calculated risks and make mistakes. We want them to stretch themselves as we know that the most valuable learning takes place outside their comfort zone. There is no such thing as ‘I can’t do it’, only ‘I can’t do it yet’. This Growth Mindset is nurtured by staff and praised where it is demonstrated.
