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.
In July 2013 Mayfield School secured approval from Portsmouth City Council to extend our age range from 11-16 to 4-16 and become the city’s first ‘all through’ school and one of only a handful of state, single site, ‘all through’ schools in the country. With this change in status, the school undertook a significant building programme drawing on over £4 million in additional capital to create Primary facilities.
In September 2014, we welcomed the first intake into our primary section and became one of the most oversubscribed (5 applications per place) 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 an additional 30 into Year 3) until the primary section fills by September 2020 and the school reaches its maximum capacity of 1540 pupils across all phases.
In September 2016, Mayfield was inspected by OfSTED and was judged as ‘good’ in all areas. In particular, inspectors noted:
“A comprehensive staff training programme has been the key driver in improving teaching in classrooms over the last two years”;
“The behaviour of pupils is good. The school runs smoothly on a day to day basis with a clear code of conduct”;
“Across the school, pupils benefit from positive relationships with their teachers”.
Following a successful bid for Priority School Building Project funds, we moved into a brand new, purpose built, ‘all through’ school on the east field of the school site. Within this building there is a specialist SEN centre with a number of intervention spaces across the building.
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.
