80 Pupils Attend Anti-Bullying Conference at Mayville

80 pupils from 8 different schools across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight gathered at Mayville High School today to take part in an anti-bullying initiative inspired by Princess Diana. The day long anti-bullying campaign was led by the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign. The main aim of the day is to train young people to be Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in schools creating a positive culture, and empowering them to create peer led campaigns in order to stop bullying. Mayville’s Mrs Reid, Assistant Head of Pastoral Care and English organised the event. The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have been learning about breaking down barriers and things they can do to make a difference.

Mayville Summer Fair

It was beautiful day for Mayville High School Summer Fair at Cockleshell. There was a chance to have your photo taken with the Checkatrade Trophy. Local firefighters arrived with their fire engine and proceeded to set up a water slide for children. Mayville pupils sang and danced and Past Pupils came along to say hello. There was so much going on. Many thanks to all those who helped, and to pupils and their families who came along to support. #nurturingsucessforall#valuingpupils


Learning About the Local Area

Mayville pupils have been learning all about the surrounding area on a Humanities Enrichment Trip. On Southsea seafront they found out about different types of coastal management, and then they visited Portsmouth & Southsea Synagogue for an incredibly informative guided tour. After stopping at the hot walls in Old Portsmouth for lunch they visited Portsmouth Cathedral and had lots of fun trying out different activities.#nurturingsuccessforall

Climate Change Protest

More than 200 Mayville pupils took to the playground dressed in green today to launch their own climate change protest. Even our smallest pupils twirled their green ribbons in support. Pupils made banners and also made their own personal Eco Pledges. Head of Science Kate Jones said, ”The initiative has been driven by our pupils themselves who are worried about the planet. She said they realise that by even changing something small can make a big difference. The Portsmouth News came to cover the Protest.


Mayville Helped Make History at #DDay75

Not even rain and high winds could stop 1000 children, including Junior pupils from Mayville High School taking part in their performance of a special composition for #D-Day75 on Southsea Common this morning. Pupils had to be moved from #DDay75 stage to a marquee due to high winds. The pupils then sang '6 June 1944', a brand new song which remembers the courage and commitment made by so many on D-Day. The event was organised by the Portsmouth Music Hub, and the song conducted by @MajHuwWilliams, Director of Music Training at the Royal Marine School of Music. Well done everyone. Incredible effort. Wonderful memories. Mayville was proud to be part of it.
