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.

Testimonial

Amelia-Rose Year 8

Everyone at Villiers is just so nice! I always feel that I can talk to my tutor or a teacher if I feel worried about something, a bit stuck or need help and advice. The school is really multicultural and I enjoy the different influences and how everyone is so respectful with one another. My teachers are all great and the lessons are so engaging and interesting. I love Maths and History and want to be a Judge one day – I feel I’m getting all the right support from Villiers to help me achieve my dreams.

Isra Year 9

Villiers offers a great variety of choices. I have 4 sisters who are also at the school and we all like different topics – but at Villiers we can all learn something new. It is also a very inclusive school. Students, teachers and support staff come from all over the world and we can all learn new and interesting things from each other.

Ashvilla Year 7

I enjoy how multicultural Villiers is and how this is celebrated through events. I will even be performing in a fashion show and a dance as part of our Multicultural Evening. Our teachers are all so nice, always try to make their lessons interesting and they have also helped me build my confidence. Another great thing about Villiers is the interesting range of free after school and lunch time clubs – there are so many fun things to choose from!

Johan Year 7

I felt nervous about moving to a High School, but everyone at Villiers made us feel so welcome. The teachers are so kind and the older students helped to show us around and settle in. Now I am part of the School Council and work with students from all year groups. It is really great to see how Villiers takes the students’ ideas and suggestions seriously – we have regular meetings with the Head teacher. And I really love the delicious food in the canteen!

Coming to Villiers really feels like being part of a friendly community – everyone looks out for each other. The tutors are always there for us and every student is given the opportunity to develop their life skills. I enjoy History and the lessons are brought to life through great trips to exhibitions or museums.

Musa Year 8

I am so glad I came to Villiers. It was very easy to make friends and from the beginning, all the teachers have been so supportive. I like the diversity of the school and how respectful everyone is to each other. Some of my favourite subjects are PE and Drama and the facilities at Villiers are great.

Sunveet Year 11

Villiers has a wide range of opportunities for you to step outside of. It has a diverse and multicultural society and has some of the best teachers. It's special because everyone is so welcoming, teachers are so engaging in lessons. I say there’s nothing better than Villiers.
