Mayville High School is pleased to announce the launch of its Performing Arts Academy, offering your children the chance to take part in an Easter workshop and Summer Schools in dance, singing, drama & stage management.
This Easter we are launching our Academy of Performing Arts with a one day workshop on April 4th, which includes singing, dance and acting as well as an experience of Technical Theatre. It is an opportunity for your children to improve their confidence and fitness, build on the skills they already have and work as part of a team.
They will have tremendous fun!
We would like to warmly invite all budding young actors, singers, dancers and those interested in behind-the-scenes skills to take part.
Open to all children, 7-16 years old. To book your child’s place on our Easter workshop, or register interest for one of our Summer Schools,

Mayville High School invites you to our whole school open morning on Saturday 3rd March 2018, from 10:00am through 1:00pm.
The ethos at Mayville instills a life-long love of learning in every child and our talented and highly qualified teaching staff are dedicated to developing pupils’ skills and confidence.
We focus on the pursuit of excellence in both individual and team achievement, so every child can fulfil their unique potential.
We offer a vast array of sporting opportunities, including football, rugby, cricket, netball, swimming, tennis, athletics, badminton, gymnastics, trampolining and rounders.
Our 20-acre site at Eastney offers dedicated facilities for sport. We were well-represented at the 2016 ISA national sporting finals, showcasing our talent against some of the best young athletes in the country and earning a number of podium finishes.
The focus of this term's Open Morning is the Performing Arts.
This is our 22nd year of participating in Global Rock Challenge
Rock Challenge is presented by Be You Best foundation, to provide pupils with the chance to experience a positive, challenging way to have fun and to be your best, without having to resort to drugs in any form - including cigarettes and alcohol. It also aims to promote a healthy lifestyle and the prevention of sickness encouraging positive leisure time activities.
At Mayville we have particularly utilised Rock Challenge to encourage a team spirit within the school, the opportunity to work cooperatively as a group and to develop personal responsibility
The 11+ assessment will take place on Saturday 20th January (all pupils), Wednesday 24th January (boys only) Thursday 25th January 2017 (girls only). Pupils are required to attend on both Saturday and either Wednesday (boys) or Thursday (girls). It will not usually be possible to sit the 11+ assessment at another time.
As part of the Assessment Procedure we use standardised assessments, but do not issue past papers or practice papers. On the day of the assessments we spend the first thirty minutes going through practice questions, as well as what will be required from the three assessments the children will sit.
On Friday 15th December, the last day of term, we would like to offer all our pupils the opportunity to participate in “Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day” by coming to school in normal school uniform, but wearing a Christmas jumper.
It will cost £1.00 to participate and the money raised will go to ‘Save the Children’.
It’s Christmas Eve and Santa’s in a mood! He’s seen too many episodes of Supernanny and thinks children don’t deserve presents anymore, so he goes on strike! As Mrs Santa and the elves show him snapshots of family life, will he realise that Christmas is still a time of giving, caring and sharing? You bet he will, and so will you in this celebration of all that is good about Christmas…and about children!
There will be 2 performances each day one AM and one PM
A whole school mufti day will be held on Wednesday 29th November to bring in items for

The PTA arranges events and activities throughout the year for both the pupils and adults. It is a great opportunity to support the school and get to know other parents and staff.
We have put on some exciting and successful events such as the Firework Display now an annual event, the Christmas and Summer Fair, and Quiz Nights.
This year the P.T.A purchased a much needed sun canopy for our nursery, musical instruments for the music department and Chrome Books for the new Senior building ‘Michael Babcock House’. All of this would not be possible without the input and support from you the parents.
