About Weydon School
Weydon is an outstanding school (Ofsted 2009) and it has a high academic success rate at both GCSE and Key Stage 3. We are consistently ranked in the top three of 11-16 comprehensives in the country, according to The Sunday Times Parent Power, with 88% of students gaining five or more GCSEs at A*-C, including English and Maths and 42% A*-A grades.
The school became an Academy in April 2011 and has since gained Teaching School status. Weydon is also a National Support School, earning Leading Edge status. We are also an SSAT Schools Network Consultant School. Together with St John the Baptist School in Woking and Salesian School in Chertsey we became a Maths Hub in September 2014.
Our students’ achievements are impressive: 95% go onto further education with many going on to Oxbridge. Over the last decade the school has seen rapid improvements. We are one of the most oversubscribed schools in Surrey and enjoy an excellent reputation in the community. You will find the level of respect shown between staff and students is a joy.
The Weydon staff team is vibrant, hard-working, innovative and up for a challenge. The school enjoys a strong level of staff retention. Teaching and associate staff work well together as a team. Our associate staff members are often leading lights in suggesting and bringing about school improvements. The staff form a close knit group who enjoy each other’s professional and social company, as well as acting as ‘critical friends’. Furthermore, the parents and Governors add further strength to the school.
School trips, holidays and visits are plentiful. Staff have an active social scene and the staffroom (The Hub) is well used, being a reflection of the excellent team atmosphere which exists.
