OPEN EVENING 2014 - Wednesday 24th September

We look forward to seeing you at our open evening on Wednesday 24th September 2014 at 6:30pm.

Welcome

Pewsey Vale School is an Academy Trust, proud to be a true community school with a friendly atmosphere where all children can develop their potential to the full.  Ofsted rated us Good in every area in July 2013 under a much tougher regime when many other schools have been downgraded. We are also recognised as one of 20 Lead Behaviour Schools in the whole country.
 We  provide a personalised education, where every pupil is treated as an individual and challenged to achieve the best results.  As we are a smaller school, we are able to offer smaller than average class sizes which would equal some public schools.   We are proud of our reputation for developing the potential of all children whatever their talents.

Pewsey Vale School creates an environment which is safe, challenging and inspiring.  As we do not have a sixth form, this allows us to offer students impartial advice on a range of post 16 options, whether it be the traditional academic route or studying for specialist qualifications. We have strong links with universities who work with our students from Year 7 before they go on to do A Levels at local Academy Schools, FE Colleges or even Public Schools. Former students tell us they welcomed a change of school at 16 when they felt they were ready for fresh challenges.
 As an Arts Academy, we emphasise literacy and creative skills, which helped us earn the Artsmark Gold Award. We have a wide range of free after school clubs and excellent sporting facilities, shortly to be extended to become some of the best in Wiltshire.
  Please do come and look round, or see what some of our pupils and former students think of us, for they are our best advertisement

Jade Raisey

I took four A levels and got an A in Law an A in History an A* in Sociology and an A* in English Language. I'm going to the University of Manchester to study Law. The teachers at Pewsey gave me confidence in myself and takign extra GCSE's like Statistics and Media encouraged me to push myself academically. In addition Pewsey for me broke the stereotype that school cant be fun.


Annabel Edwards

For my A levels I got 4 As in Psychology, Chemistry, English Literature and French.

I was at Oxford University studying Experimental Psychology, and have just graduated with a 2.1. I'm now about to start an MSc in Mental Health Studies at King's College London.

I think one of the best things about being at Pewsey was that as it was quite a small school and really had the sense of being a very friendly and close-knit community. All the teachers knew your name even if they never taught you, and you knew most of the other pupils even in other years. This really made me feel valued as an individual, rather than just another one of hundreds of students. I think that, especially as I was extremely shy, this helped me to gain a lot more confidence in my own abilities both academically, and in non-academic activities such as the school plays. I don't think I could have had such a positive experience from any other school


Jed Waldren

It doesn’t matter who you are. Everybody gets nervous when the start somewhere new. I was no exception. However after a matter of days, all of that had changed. The teachers, and students at Pewsey Vale are more of an extended family than a school, welcoming and supportive to the last.  With everyone looking out for everyone else, creating a dynamic that I have never seen before, and will never see again in a school.
Over the 5 years I’ve been at this school. I’ve had some great times, with memories that will last a lifetime, most with my friends, but many in lessons. I’ve also made some great friends, staff and students alike. Many of which I’m keeping in touch with.
But when it comes down to teaching and lessons. I’ve never seen a school like it. All of the lessons are interesting and the teachers go above and beyond to help if you are struggling with anything. Often staying behind in their own time to make sure that you understand exactly what was being taught.    
Looking back at my time at PVS, I don’t think I could have chosen a more friendly, dedicated and supportive group of people to be with and I’m proud to have been a part of it.


Emma Mundy

I am moving to Winchester, taking a gap year and studying Sports Science at Winchester University next year. Going to Pewsey allowed me to take a huge range of subjects and achieve high grades in all of them due to the hard work of the my teachers. Taking such diverse subjects allowed me to be better prepared when making a decision on what I wanted to do in higher education.
