Welcome to Villiers High School
I am delighted to be the Headteacher of Villiers High School. Not only does it have a proud history, being the longest running school in the borough, it has strong traditions and a very supportive learning community too. Villiers is a highly successful 11-19 co-educational school with students from a very diverse background. They work, play and flourish together developing respect and understanding of different cultures. All visitors to the school comment positively on the warmth of welcome, the harmonious atmosphere and the focused attitude of our students.
We have grown considerably in size and popularity over the last few years, a reflection of our high standards and our fantastic achievements. Currently, we are in the top 12% of all schools nationally, for our Progress 8 score, putting us significantly above the national average. Our students leave with qualifications that will set them up for the world of work and further education. We are a relatively small school with around 1300 students and nearly 120 teaching and support staff; this means that we are just about the right size to offer a full range of academic and vocational subjects, taught by specialist teachers and retain the small 'family' type of supportive environment in which we get to know every child.
Our last Ofsted inspection in April 2018 recognised us as a significantly better than a 'Good' school in which students make excellent progress and recommended us for an 'Outstanding' status in their next visit.
Although we take great pride in our high achievers, we are particularly proud that ALL our students leave with sound qualifications, experiences and skills on which to build their futures. Last year 100% of our Sixth Form students achieved a place on a course and at a university of their choice. We are particularly proud of our enrichment programme and personalised approach to students' needs. .
We want our students to enjoy coming to school and develop a love of learning. Our Motto " For life, not school, we learn" sums up our mission. We want students to be excellent learners and citizens who will make valuable contributions to their families and their community in the future. Our values "Honesty, Equity, Aspiration, Respect and Tenacity" underpin qualities we want to see in our students and therefore, our policies, procedures, approaches in the classroom are honed to develop these on a daily basis.
The school is a beautiful Grade 2 Listed building and we have undertaken a comprehensive refurbishment plan to upgrade all the classrooms and IT facilities.
It is always best to see the school in action and experience what learning really looks like on a daily basis at Villiers. We really would encourage you to arrange a visit.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
