Welcome to Pittville School's website. I hope you will enjoy finding out more about our wonderful school. I am very proud of the achievements of all our students both in and out of the classroom.
The overall results of all exam qualifications taken in 2014 has resulted in our students achieving 71% A*-C. We saw improvements in many GCSE subjects such as maths, English Literature, history, geography, statistics, ICT and drama. In further maths 77% of students achieved A*-C. We have seen a further increase in the number of students achieving 2 x A* - C in GCSE science. We are delighted that for a second year running we have seen an improvement in the number of students achieving 3 A and A* grades at GCSE. Many congratulations to all our students.
These continue to be exciting times at Pittville. Teaching and learning continues to be at the heart of the school; we want to continue to develop our curriculum so that it is relevant to students’ needs and aspirations. Data is being used effectively to track progress and engage parents in helping all to succeed. The school environment continues to improve and students feel safe and happy. They are proud of their school and they want to learn. As Ofsted commented in December 2011, “students are proud of the changes they are helping to bring about”. We want to continue to improve so that all our students continue to aspire to achieve their full potential.

• Livingstone House students will wear purple to support Macmillan Cancer Research.
• Abbott House students will wear red to support the British Heart Foundation.
• Aston House will wear green to support the Aston Project.
In order to take part in the day students will pay a £1.00 to wear as much of their house colour as they would like. If students only wish to wear a small amount of colour (jewellery etc) then they should still wear their uniform. Students not taking part should also wear their normal uniform.
All the funds raised will go to the respective charities. Money will be collected during week beginning 2nd February 2015. This money should be handed into tutors.
