On Thursday 14 February the Governing Body of the Mandeville School Specialist Sports College passed a resolution to apply to the Secretary of State for Education to become an Oasis Sponsored Academy.

This decision was reached after extensive research to ensure that the school continues to build on current improvements and successes at pace commensurate with student aspirations and potential.

Governors are meeting with me during half - term to discuss planning and priorities and I will keep you advised of our progress and decision making.

Thank you for your continued support.

School Fully Open
by Mr P J Patchett - Friday, 15 February 2013, 12:48 PM

On Monday 25 February the school will return to full operation and opens for all students.

Engineers have now successfully restored the operation of the main heating plant following the extensive damage caused by flooding earlier this week.

The last week of this half-term has been extremely challenging for all concerned and I would like to thank parents/carers for their co-operation and understanding during these difficult circumstances which were beyond our control.

The Sixth Form Subject Teacher Meeting takes place in the main school hall between 4.00 and 6.30pm on Thursday 7th February 2013.  

ALL Sixth Form students should attend and we would like as many parents as possible to accompany their child.

This is a good opportunity for parents and students to have an individual conversation with subject specialists and receive detailed information about  progress and ways forward.”

Thank you

English Language Exam
by Mrs K Horton - Friday, 21 December 2012, 1:57 PM


Attention Parents/Guardians

We need your help!

The English Language Exam is in 20 days.  We need our students to use that time wisely in order to be fully prepared.

Encourage Year 11 to use the VLE.  There is a DAILY revision programme for students where we will be posting 10-20 minute activities which link directly to the exam.  We will track and monitor how frequently students use this resource and reward students with positive points.

The course is here:

Thank you in advance for your support!
