Why choose our Secondary

The secondary phase (Yrs 7 – 11) of PVS is becoming increasingly popular with the local community. Since being established in 2011 the school has gone from strength to strength.

We serve our community by giving every child the opportunity to progress to Higher Education. We do this by providing excellent teaching delivered by subject specialists. Our core curriculum is very deliberately focused on Academic subjects but we are very proud of the fact that over 70% of Year 10 and 11 choose to continue to study a creative subject helping to build confidence and self-esteem in our young people. We believe that an appreciation and understanding of the arts in particular help to build future confidence, self-esteem and optimism in young people. We have recently achieved the ArtsMark Silver Award status which means that our developing expertise and provision in the Arts is a strength of the school.

The curriculum is enhanced by a full range of extracurricular visits and experiences. Our students have had opportunities to learn Japanese, visit the Russian Ballet and have met published authors this year: experiences that will last a lifetime. The current pandemic has restricted the number of extra curricular opportunities that we usually offer. However, we are using technology in new and exciting ways as a means of providing additional extra curricular experiences.
