I am delighted to introduce you to The Vyne Community School. As the Head teacher I am exceptionally proud of our school and our students. The Vyne is set in beautiful grounds and has excellent facilities. We are a specialist school for the Arts and have extensive links across Basingstoke with our Primary schools, Basingstoke College of Technology and Queen Mary’s College, as well as our unique and innovative partnerships with our friends and colleagues at Fujitsu and AWE.
The Vyne’s OFSTED inspection of May 2016 rated the school as “Good” in all areas and “Outstanding” for Personal Development. We are proud of our reputation as a small, friendly school, built on strong, traditional ‘Vyne Values’, where exceptional pastoral care, the acceptance of others and celebration of diversity and excellent academic achievement for all students are the cornerstones of our success. This reputation is endorsed by those parents and prospective students who come to visit us during our many Open Mornings.
The improvements of recent years at The Vyne have been impressive, secured by a committed, loyal and talented team of governors, leaders, teachers and support staff. As the Head teacher, I make time to listen carefully and genuinely to the views of parents and carers and the community – I am acutely aware that the school cannot be successful without your support. Whatever your child’s interest, need or ambition, we will stop at nothing to nurture them and help them to be successful!
We would love you to come and visit to see and hear about our success story and join us on our journey to “Outstanding”. We are certainly a school with a passion for helping all students to achieve success and fulfil their hopes, dreams and potential.
Mark Kingswood, Headteacher
