Students, staff, and parents are incredibly proud of their school.
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.
Students are polite and courteous to each other and to adults.
Ofsted has graded the school ‘Good’ on the last four occasions it has visited, demonstrating our consistent focus on maintaining high standards at Devizes School.
Our results last summer again showed that our students can and do achieve the highest possible grades, with many going on to the top Russell Group universities and others securing places at their preferred universities all over the UK which will best support them in their intended career path.
We want students to feel happy and successful in school, enjoy their learning, be kind, and make a unique contribution to the life of the school. Our school values are pride, courage, and resilience; we want students to be enriched by their experiences at school, both academically and personally.
We have very high expectations at Devizes School, and this is reflected in our students’ appearance, behaviour, and attitudes toward learning. Students take a real pride in their school, as do all staff, and all are fully committed to “raising aspirations and building futures” for all young people. The school’s curriculum provides opportunities for students to study subjects which are well-suited to their needs, aspirations, and talents.
