Wyvern is a small, successful 11-16 boys’ school in an outstanding location in Laverstock, a village on the North Eastern outskirts of Salisbury.
A significant virtue of our size is the ability we have to reduce class sizes and increase the level of personalisation in the curriculum. Ofsted judged us as Good in 2012 and subsequently we have enjoyed strong academic successes, and importantly with encouraging progress from students’ starting points. While we celebrate this success, we are not complacent and always seek new ideas and commitment that will drive standards and teaching and learning ever higher.
Wyvern College is clearly defined by its Christian ethos as a voluntary aided Church of England School. This status is immersed into who we are and what we do. Our Christian ethos is also a fine motivator in encouraging the community to give of their best and offer a rounded education in a wonderful environment to boys of all faith, or none. This has been confirmed in a highly complimentary SIAMS inspection in March 2016. Visitors to the school will invariably comment on the warm and polite welcome received from both students and staff. New staff joining the school can be assured of a warm, supportive environment as well as robust professional challenge.
