Executive Head's Message
Thank you for your interest in Wyvil Primary School and Centre for Children with Speech and Language Impairment. The school has been providing education to local children since 1876 and I hope that you will discover through this website an organisation that is committed to every child reaching their potential and offering an array of opportunities designed to inspire their academic, creative, musical and sporting talents.
Pupils at the school make excellent progress and this is reflected in national test scores that exceed national averages. We also have forged relationships with world class partners that have led to the children having unique experiences. Notably, as one of only six schools to have partner status with the South Bank Centre, the pupils have had regular opportunities to perform, create and even undertake work experience at an internationally renowned venue for the arts.
The staff at Wyvil are a combination of the established and those at the earlier stages of their careers. There is an excellent array of skills and a shared commitment to the school. During the last academic year colleagues successfully led the school to achieve national awards for ICT, environmental education and commitment to inclusion.
Music is extremely important at Wyvil and in addition to a school orchestra, choir and steel pans band, many children study ABRSM exams (piano, clarinet, violin, cello and flute) and the school is part of the In Harmony Lambeth project.
In 2013/14 the school is looking forwards to further success for all pupils; working closely with our Federation partner, Vauxhall Primary School; combined projects for children, parents and staff in the Oval Learning Cluster and developing a new provision for children with autism with the London Borough of Lambeth.
Visits from families considering Wyvil for their child’s education are most welcome and can be arranged via the school office.
