Mayfield School started a new era with its brand new state-of-the-art building in 2021. This has provided our school community with new facilities, such as a large sports hall, new drama rooms, new assembly hall, a large canteen and café area and much more besides.

We are a friendly, vibrant school with high standards and expectations. We pride ourselves on the positive relationships we foster, knowing every young person as an individual and challenging each of them to have the highest possible aspirations through our ambitious and inclusive curriculum. Our ambition is to build on our excellent pastoral care with high standards and expectations so that young people are able to flourish and to achieve their very best.

All of our pupils benefit from a wealth of extra-curricular activities, including trips and visits to enrich their experience at our school, and we embrace regular opportunities to celebrate our pupils' success and achievements within and beyond our school gates. By building and maintaining strong partnerships between everyone involved directly with the school and the wider community, we will continue to develop our collective learning journey.

Finally, I believe Mayfield is an exciting place to learn. The staff are committed to ensuring that our pupils remember their nursery, infant, junior and senior school days, where they gained the inspiration to face new challenges, becoming future-ready, with a passion for learning. We are continually striving for excellence in everything that we do as we fulfil our school vision where everyone is valued, inspired and included.
