Head Teacher's Message

Dear Parents and Carers

Many thanks to all the families, governors and staff who attended our Awards Evening at Warwick Hall on Thursday 3 October. Our special guest speaker, former Myton student, Neil Adams MBE spoke about his judo career and stressed the importance of getting as many experiences as possible while you’re at school; taking every opportunity that comes your way and having alternative plans lined up in case something doesn’t work out first time.

Our Heads of Senate, Katie Nayler and Ed Tennant, spoke enthusiastically about their journeys through secondary school and shared some of the many and varied achievements of our students over the past year. (more…)


Are you eligible for free school meals?

Did you know that when you successfully apply for free school meals, Myton School will receive significant extra government funding, even if your child does not want the meal? This additional funding is used to help children from lower income families do their very best at school. Once you qualify for free school meals you may also get help with things like transport costs, school trips and uniform. (more…)

A reminder about our library

A reminder that our library is open every day: Mon-Thurs – 8.15am-4.15pm and Fri – 8.15am-4pm. Everyone is welcome to use the LRC before and after school: students can enjoy using our facilities, do their homework or simply relax with a book! Find out more about our facilities on our website: About the Learning Resource Centre.

Cycle repairs

If any student has a problem with their bicycle, help is available in school. Just go along to the Science Department after school and look for Mr Hobbs, Dr Sarjeant, Mr Garner or Mr Wallis. We have a range of tools and repair kits in room S5 and we will try to help fix punctures or other bike problems.

Thanks to the School Fund and the Friends of Myton School for funding the equipment. Cycle safe!
