Aspire together, Achieve together
Adfecere pariter, Perfecere pariter



The Governors of Wyedean School are proud of the opportunities offered to our young people to develop the values and skills essential for their future.  We are determined to appoint highly dedicated teachers to the staff who have the interest of every student at heart.  It is our wish that all students achieve their full potential with academic qualifications whilst developing the personal qualities of initiative and self-confidence.   Parents and staff are represented on the Governing Body, working closely with the Principal and Leadership Team to set the aims and targets for the school and provide a broad and balanced curriculum. We recognise that support at home is an essential part of learning for young people and we are always ready to receive the views of parents and hope some can consider standing for election as Parent Governors when the situation arises.  You are assured of a warm and friendly welcome when visiting the school.  You can contact any member of the Governing Body via the Governor Support Officer:


Our Vision

The pursuit of excellence in all of the school’s activities is demonstrated by an uncompromising and highly successful drive to strongly improve, or maintain, the highest levels of achievement and personal development for all students over a sustained period of time.

All leaders and managers, including those responsible for governance, are highly ambitious for the students and lead by example. They base their actions on a deep and accurate understanding of the school’s performance, and of the staff and students’ skills and attributes.
