About Mayfield School

Mayfield is a very successful and heavily oversubscribed school in the north of Portsmouth City. We are one of the first state, single-site, ‘all through’ schools in the country. We operate an “Outstanding” Pre-School and Nursery with reduced fees and preferential access for Mayfield staff. We have been successful in our bid to receive ‘Priority School Building’ funding which will result in the construction of a multi-million, ‘state of the art’ new build on the current school site which is due to open in summer 2021. In September 2016, OfSTED conducted a section 5 inspection and found all areas to be ‘good’ and in summer 2018 the school secured it’s best ever results across all key stages. All staff members have the opportunity to work across all sections of the school depending on their interest, skills and experience. During this period of growth, we have a number of vacancies in all sections and truly believe “our only limitation is our ambition”.

Before you apply for a post at Mayfield please ensure you have read and embrace our ways of working and ethos by reading our Staff Handbook.

Mayfield is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to criminal records bureau checks along with other relevant pre-employment checks.
