Villiers is a highly successful, 11-19 co-educational school with students from a variety of religions, faiths and countries. They work, play and flourish together in our outstanding learning environment developing respect and understanding for each other so that they are well prepared for their adult lives. All visitors to the school comment positively on the warmth of welcome, harmonious atmosphere around the school and the focused attitude of pupils.
We have grown in size and popularity over the last few years, a reflection of our high standards and our fantastic achievements. Currently we have just over 1300 pupils and nearly 180 teaching and support staff. This means that whilst we are small enough to retain a friendly atmosphere and know everyone’s face, the school is large enough to offer a full range of academic and vocational subjects taught by specialist teachers.
The school also has a rapidly improving Sixth Form with just over 210 students taking a variety of Advanced Level and BTEC courses. Academically we establish good working habits in an environment that is wholly conducive to learning and study. Our results have been improving year on year and our progress 8 data has put our performance among the top 12% in the country. This demonstrates that we are bringing about effective learning whilst maintaining concern for the individual.
Although we take great pride in our high achievers, we are particularly proud that ALL of our students leave with sound qualifications on which to build their future.
