About Mayfield School

Mayfield educates children and young people, who have a range of learning difficulties, between the ages of 3 and 19.  We have approximately 300 students on roll and we are split across 2 different sites – Heathfield Road and HML.

We pride ourselves on the inclusive work that we carry out with other schools and partners in the community and have developed excellent relationships with local businesses and charities.  This has had a positive effect on our school’s curriculum, and the pupils’ have benefited from a range of extra-curricular and subject enhancing activities during their time with us; including trips to local centres of interest and opportunities to develop their social skills on residential outings.  Our curriculum model outlines the emphasis that we place on each child as an individual.

We understand the important role that families provide in supporting their child’s education, and here at Mayfield, we ensure that we promote a positive learning environment that is welcoming and supportive to everyone.  We have a designated Pastoral Team that work tirelessly to support our families and students.  This includes arranging coffee mornings, workshops and welcoming new families to the school.
