Be a part of the world's biggest coffee morning
Catch up over a cuppa, enjoy some gorgeous treats – and the money we raise at our Coffee Morning will help us make sure no one has to face cancer alone.
Because every slice of cake and cup of coffee helps us make a huge difference to people facing cancer.
Come along for a nibble and a natter.

Our harvest offerings will be given to the “Sunday Suppers” which is held weekly in St Simon’s Church for localhomeless people and others in real need.
The team running these clubs would be pleased to receive tinned goods, especially vegetables, jars, rice, pasta, packet soup and teabags. It would also be greatly appreciated if we could give some sweets, chocolates or special biscuits for occasional treats.
Mayville parents, staff and pupils have always been very generous at Harvest Festival and I am sure this year will be no exception.
I hope you will be able to join us at this year’s Harvest Festival.
Our annual Prizegiving Evening will be at the Portsmouth Guildhall.
The evening will be a celebration of the wonderful events and achievements in this our special 120th anniversary year.
This event is compulsory for pupils in LII - UV
Join us for our very popular annual firework display at Cockleshell playing fields.

The display is always spectacular and rivals many of the major events around the city at a fraction of the cost.
Warm drinks, toffee apples, burgers, hot dogs, glow sticks and laughter fill the event and the raffle to win the chance to press the button which starts the display is a must.
Tickets will be on sale w/c 9th October
If you could spare some time to help and support us, please come along to the AGM on Thursday 14th September at 6pm in Michael Babacock House Recreational Room and share a glass of wine and some refreshments. If you are unable to attend the meeting but would still like to be involved in supporting the P.T.A. please contact Mrs Carter at
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.
To celebrate 120 years of Mayville High School we are hosting a Garden Party.
We are bringing together former and present pupils parents, staff and friends of Mayville to join in our festivities at Cockshell Gardens Eastney PO4 9SA
You are cordially invited to celebrate with us.

Mayville High School welcomes you to our Pre-Prep & Junior School Open Morning on Saturday 17th June 2017, from 10:00am to 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 fulfill 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.
Creative Arts is firmly embedded within school life at Mayville. The summer term last year saw a cross-section of our senior pupils performing ‘Bugsy Malone’ — with two casts on consecutive days, it was a huge challenge for performers and backstage crew.
In 2016, Juniors enjoyed summer residentials, including a Bushcraft course and trips to Calshot and Kingswood activity centres.
Our open morning is free — do join us!
We are planning to hold a Star Wars day on Thursday 4th May. This will be an opportunity to use some of the captivating characters and stories from the Star Wars universe to spark learning in a creative and engaging way. The children are all invited to dress up as their favourite Star Wars character for the day but it is absolutely not a requirement.
On Tuesday 28th March, the whole Junior school will be going to Castle Fields for the annual cross country event. All children from UII to UIII will be competing for House honours. They will need to wear their House colour t-shirts with their PE kits. UI and LII will be coming to support and will be wearing their house t-shirts too to cheer on their teams. Parents are most welcome to join us on the day. The actual races will begin around 1:30pm.
Pre Prep and Junior Pupils
This Friday it is Comic Relief 2017 and we would like to invite the children to wear something red with their uniform. It can be anything that they like. If they would like to take part then they need to bring a £1 donation for us to pass on to Comic relief. There will be opportunities to tell their favourite jokes to different year groups throughout the day.
At 9am on Wednesday there will be a Junior School parade of Easter Bonnets and/or Easter Egg decoration skills. Every child that enters school with an Easter Bonnet or with an egg that has been decorated will receive a small prize and there will be an overall prize for each class. We look forward to seeing the creations that come through the door next week
