Devizes School Raising Aspirations Building Futures


I am delighted to introduce you to Devizes School and give you a flavour of the ethos and culture that makes this such a special place to learn and work.  I am incredibly proud of the school and all who make it what it is.

Devizes School is a Good School (Ofsted 2015) with learning at the heart of all that we do.  We are a very forward-thinking school, always keen to do better.  It is a very happy place in which to learn and work.  Many who visit the school throughout the year comment on the calm and purposeful environment they find.  The positive relationships between students and staff, based on mutual respect, are at the heart of high standards of teaching and learning which result in all students making good progress.  “The school is a calm and supportive place in which to learn.”  Ofsted 2015 Students are polite and courteous to each other and to adults.  “The behaviour of students is good.” Ofsted 2015

The academic side to education of young people is obviously important but of equal importance is a knowledge and appreciation of the wider world.  This is a particular strength of the school and was acknowledged by our recent Ofsted inspection.  “The extensive range of extra-curricular activities enables students to participate in sporting and cultural events that would not otherwise be accessible to them.”  Ofsted 2015

Ofsted has graded the school GOOD on the last 4 occasions it has visited the school and demonstrates our consistent focus for high standards at Devizes School.  Read more
