In September 2014, we welcomed the first intake into our primary section and became one of the most oversubscribed schools in the city, with 60 pupils joining us, many of whom were in our pre-school. Each year the school will continue to admit 60 pupils into Year R (plus 30 into Year 3) until the primary section fills by 2020 and the school reaches its maximum capacity of 1540 pupils across all phases.

In November 2021, Mayfield was inspected by OfSTED and remained a ‘good’ school. In particular, inspectors noted:

“Primary age pupils particularly enjoy their learning”;
“Leaders have planned the curriculum throughout the school carefully. It is broad and well sequenced. Leaders have considered how the learning from Reception through to Year 11 connects. This means there is deliberate and planned progression”;
“Pupils’ learning throughout the school happens in a calm and orderly way”.

Most recently, Mayfield has been successful in its bid for priority school building project (PSBP) funds which resulted in the construction of a ‘state of the art’ purpose built ‘all through’ school on the east field of the current site. Work started in November 2019 and the new, £multi-million, building was handed over in September 2021 – we are now in the final stage (demolition of the old building and reinstatement of all outside space. All works are due for completion by Summer 2023.
