Our school Reindeer Run was not only a wonderful festive day it raised an incredible £3005 for our local children’s hospice, Jigsaw.

Vicki came into school from the hospice to collect the sponsorship money and thank the pupils.

Thank you all for helping to support this vital service which supports many of our pupils and families here at Mayfield.


It's the 5th anniversary of the Campus Whitehaven project in Cumbria, the state-of-the-art education and community facilities which brings together St Benedict’s Catholic High School and Mayfield School for children with special educational needs.

This was the largest single investment from the NDA and Sellafield Ltd, reaffirming our commitment to investing in skills, growth in communities and local and regional education.

Find out more about the history of the project in this month's InCumbria here:


We were visited today by Vanessa from the charity ‘Give us a break 2010’ they have kindly donated £25,000 to our school!

Tonight we celebrated our OUTSTANDING Ofsted result with a quiz and pizza night for all our wonderful staff.
It was lovely to all spend time together, well done to ‘The Recruiters’ who were our winning team 👏👏


We were presented with a £600 donation from Jake’s great grandmother. The money was raised at the Veterans club in Egremont, instead of buying Christmas cards they all donated money and also raised further funds through hampers and raffles! 😊
Thank you so much ❤️

Mayfield School was visited by the Engineering Centre of Excellence at Sellafield where they provide us with a fantastic day full of science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities. Everyone got involved and there was something for everyone. We had a visit from the robot dog, explored with the plasma balls, coding mice, worked on different circuits and helped build models using Lego and straw connectors as well as many more fun activities. A huge thank you to Sellafield for organising such a wonderful at our school and thank you for the donations of a plasma ball and lights.

Today was the start of our Calvert Lakes visits.
We were lucky enough to receive a large grant that contributed heavily to the cost of the trips, that will run over the next week and a half.
All pupils in KS3 and beyond have been offered the opportunity which is fantastic!
Today’s activities were Rock and Rope, High Ropes, Zip Line, Swing and Bush Craft!
We can’t wait for tomorrow 😁

We had lots of festive fun at both our Whitehaven and Cockermouth sites for our Reindeer Runs in aid of Jigsaw children's hospice. Pupils ran, wheeled and skipped whilst often being chased by our naughty elf. There was also a snow storm, orienteering and even a visit from Santa to give us a medal!
