Welcome to our School
Set in the lee of Laverstock Down, Wyvern College serves as a secondary school for boys in Salisbury. Easily accessible for car users, those on foot, cyclists or by bus, the school continues to form an integral part of life for boys aged 11-16 in Salisbury.
In addition to providing each student with increasing confidence and support, this school welcomes every potential student with an outright commitment - to show them compassion and to teach them courage. A great strength of Wyvern is that it is not too big or too small. This strength is reinforced by the innovative pastoral support and structures the school has in place for the students.
Wyvern is that kind of school community, easy to participate in from the first day, a place where each student can make their mark.
Another of our key strengths is the quality of our facilities. As a designated specialist Technology College our school has some of the best equipped science laboratories in Wiltshire. Also our computer suites boast the latest technology and our catering facilities are of such a high standard and generous capacity that they are utilised by other local schools.
Underpinning all this is the ethos that being a Voluntary Aided Church of England school brings. We share the vision that all who join us can gain life affirming experience, secure skills and take opportunities that gives them choices for whatever is next in life. Each student is valued highly for who they are and our aim is to nurture and further equip them as we share that learning experience together.
