Vision Statement & Aims


Wyvern Academy is more than a place where pupils learn – it’s a place where growth of their character and minds is at the heart of everything we strive for. Our school has a unique, friendly and warm atmosphere with high expectations and a clear focus on achievement.

Our school motto, ‘Nunquam cedo’ (never yield), is historically connected to our local area. We are proud to be part of that tradition and embrace our role within it as we inspire and challenge our pupils to grow into responsible citizens who can go out and shape the future of their community and the world beyond.

Our aims are structured within our teaching and learning vision using the acronym GROWTH.

Grit, resilience and determination are all qualities we instil in our young people. While aiming to secure academic success is of paramount importance, we aim to educate the whole child and equip our young people with life skills.

Responsibility and taking ownership of their own choices is modelled and encouraged at each step of their school journey so that they can confidently take an active, rewarding and fulfilling place in the community.

Opportunities and leadership skills to bring their dreams to reality. Through personalised individual attention our learners are confident and creative thinkers, ready to take the next step in their lives.

Wisdom imparted and gained through a variety of engaging experiences and activities in and beyond the classroom, gives our pupils the confidence to follow their dreams and make informed life choices.

Thinking Tools that stimulate imagination, logical deduction, investigation, problem solving skills and the ability to work flexibly with ICT and new technologies.

High Achievement and ambition for every young person is a right we believe in with self-motivation and well-being bringing together the academic and pastoral care vision for pupil success.
