About Us

 

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.

The White Horse Federation

The White Horse Federation, made in Swindon, founded in 2012

The White Horse Federation is a Multi Academy Trust of six primary schools, one special school and very shortly one secondary school. The federation grew from a passion to be collaborative in providing a first class education to a wide range of children so that each one could more fully understand what they were capable of, what talents they had and to strive for excellence in themselves in order to succeed in the next phase of their education and in the world of work.

At its heart is a belief that we want to develop the type of schools that we would be proud to send our own children to. We do this with a relentless drive for academic excellence blended with a shared moral purpose and shared values but also with an awful lot of fun and happiness in our schools. We genuinely believe in partnership working with our schools, the pupils and their parents and the wider community each serves to create the best possible outcomes for our children.

We also believe that our colleagues are among the finest in the country and we are proud to empower them through support, training and career opportunities. With such outstanding staff we are able to ensure every student achieves all that they are capable of and more, regardless of background, culture, heritage or ability.
