Myton School is an 11-18 coeducational comprehensive school. Most students live locally, although the school attracts students from outside the priority area. The school is located on Myton Road in the town of Warwick in Warwickshire, England. The history of the school in its current form dates from 1968. As of January 2013[update] the school has 1,600 students.
The school started life as Oken High School, a mixed-sex, non-selective secondary school which was opened in 1954. In 1959 Oken became Oken High School for Boys when the girls were transferred to the newly established Beauchamp High School for Girls. The two single-sex schools had each moved to the site that Myton School presently occupies and they were amalgamated in 1968. Since then the school has grown substantially as the size of each school year has increased, 11 year olds were admitted for the first time in 1996 (when Warwickshire changed its secondary school start date to a year earlier) and as the Sixth Form has grown in size. The school became a grant maintained school in 1992, and a foundation school after grant maintained status was abolished by the incoming Labour government in 1997. Under the government's school specialisation funding scheme it has become a specialist Science College. On 1 July 2011, the school became an academy.
The School's aim is to ensure both students and staff are successful through achieving their full potential as learners and individuals. To attain this aim, the School strives to ensure all are successful learners who know how to improve their learning, being equipped to be critical and reflective learners at Myton and beyond.
Myton School has a Sixth Form of approximately 300 students. The Sixth Form offers a challenging and supportive framework of outstanding teaching. the school has a dedicated Sixth Form Support Tutor, skilled in such key areas as UCAS & Oxbridge applications. Ofsted 2012 noted the 'outstanding teaching' in the Sixth Form as a significant strength of the school. 85% of the students on average gain entry to their first choice university on leaving, including Oxford, Cambridge and overseas.
