About Us

Welcome to Vyners School, a mixed 11-18 Academy.

Whether you are a student, parent, prospective parent, neighbour or a potential candidate for a post at Vyners - we hope that this website will provide a brief insight into our school and some of the fantastic work undertaken by our highly motivated students and exceptional staff.

Our aim is simple. We want to be the best school in the country so that our students get a better deal here than they would in any other school.

Vyners is an extremely popular and successful 'Leading Edge' school with an excellent reputation for academic achievement and extra-curricular activities. The school’s performance at GCSE and A-Level is outstanding – over the last three years we have been ranked in the top 10% of all schools nationally at GCSE, whilst we continue to perform in line with national expectations at A-level. In 2018, 79% of students gained a standard pass (grade 4) in both the English and Maths at GCSE level with 64% achieving a strong pass (grade 5) in these core subjects.  At A-level, 54% of all grades were at A*-B and our students continue to advance to the very best Universities and Apprenticeships in both the UK and United States.

The Ofsted inspection in December 2013 agreed with the school's self-evaluation at the time that we were a 'Good' school with 'Outstanding' behaviour and safety and Leadership and Management. The school was re-inspected in February 2018 under the Ofsted short inspection framework for 'Good' schools. The inspection team concluded that we have demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in certain areas since 2013 which 'may indicate that the school is improving towards being outstanding'.  We look forward to our next full inspection where we are confident that we will be able to demonstrate that we are truly and outstanding school.

School Values





Our school values underpin everything we do and were developed in conjunction with students, staff, parents and governors in 2013. At Vyners, we successfully combine a 21st Century education with traditional high expectations of uniform, behaviour and standards. We pride ourselves on the positive relationships that exist in the school and the sense of being part of a happy community. We are a genuinely comprehensive school, believing that all students bring their own talents to our community. We value our students equally and take great care to make sure that every one of them is happy, secure and successful.

We strive to develop ‘rounded and grounded’ young people, ready to make a positive contribution to the world. We firmly believe that the success of a school should be measured by where its students are five to ten years after they leave it. We have a strong tradition of our students attending some of the best universities and apprenticeships on offer and our alumni can be found in a wide range of exciting careers. Many of them remain committed to Vyners and return to support current students as they strive for excellence.

I strongly encourage you to visit us to see Vyners for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you to the school.

Mr Gary Mullings, Headteacher
