MAYVILLE: THE SMALL SCHOOL WITH THE BIG HEART
“One of the South’s best kept secret”, is how parents at Mayville high School in Southsea often refer to their school. Mr and Mrs Dean have three sons at Mayville. Mr Dean says, “It’s a school that looks after its pupils, and they in turn feel confident, and so they achieve.”
This years GCSE’s results are testament to this. A stunning 97 per cent of all who took the exams earnt A* to C grades in 5 subjects. Considering that 25 per cent of the school population is dyslexic, and are there because of the school’s renowned dyslexia unit, this is no mean feat.
Head teacher Martin Castle says, “Consistently strong GCSE results are important but it is the individual achievement that is the real key to the success of the school.”
Mr Dean says, “My wife and I are not high earners and many of my friends ask how you can afford to educate three children privately? It’s thanks to scholarships and sibling discount and the fact that the fees are very competitively priced, that our children get a top quality education with small class sizes.” Our fleet of school minibuses pick up from Portsmouth Harbour station, Hayling ferry, and the Hovercraft, for those travelling into the city.
Now Mayville can also boast the use of its own playing fields in Southsea. Things couldn’t be better for our small Hampshire school. Mayville parents, teachers and children know it, and we are only too happy to let you into our secret.
