Welcome to the Parish Church of Mayfield. We are in a beautiful part of Staffordshire, very close to the market town of Ashbourne.
There has been a church in Mayfield for over a thousand years. Today we are an active church with close links with Henry Prince School, the Church Aided primary school in Mayfield. We also have a busy Sunday School for children from three years. Many events take place throughout the year.
- Henry Prince School to stay open!
Good news - consultation to close Henry Prince School has been formally abandoned by the school governors, as the immediate threat of closure has passed. It is essential though going forward that we all, as a community, support and promote the school to increase pupil numbers and secure the long term future of Mayfield's School.
- Henry Prince School Public Meeting. To discuss the proposal to convert Henry Prince School to a primary school. At 5.30 pm in the Memorial Hall. The proposal is part of the business plan to increase the number of pupils at the school. If the proposal goes ahead then parents will have the choice of whether their children go from Henry Prince to QEGs in Asbourne or to Rycroft.
- Latest Henry Prince School Ofsted inspection (Oct 17) says
"This school continues to be good."
"The needs of pupils across the school are well catered for in a warm and nurturing environment. This is particularly true for those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, including social, emotional and mental health needs."
"Pupils talked enthusiastically about residential trips, playing a musical instrument, taking part in sports activities and learning French."
