The ethos of Vandyke is based on strong, positive relationships between staff and students. The atmosphere is of a “college” whereby we seek to allow students autonomy and independence. Students respond very well to this creating a “special” atmosphere around school often commented upon by visitors. Staff go out of their way to provide great teaching and support and additional learning opportunities for students. Parents and carers are supportive of the school and feedback from parents and carers is always that the school is welcoming and friendly.
We are pleased to hold Sportsmark and Artsmark (Platinum) awards in recognition of our commitment to Sport/PE and our outstanding programme of extra-curricular sport and performing arts activities. Over 160 students take part in the DoE award scheme each year.
In September 2020 we opened a new teaching block comprising 12 new science labs, 10 new maths classrooms, Sixth Form centre including Sixth Form café and accommodation for staff.
