At Cornelius Vermuyden School we are equally proud of all of our talented individuals. We are delighted to have Mirava Vekaria (7S1) who has recently joined Year 7 who specialises in Bollywood dancing.

Mirava is talented performer whose achievements at such a tender age include performing for the Indian Prime Minister in London, entering Britain’s Got Talent, came 2nd in the ‘Great Big School Dance’ and was awarded 1st Indian soloist in the ‘Teen Star’ competition. We look forward to celebrating more of Mirava’s achievements in the very near future.

Mirava Vekaria year 7

I am a Bollywood dancer. I can do over 10 styles of dance such as whacking, kathack, popping, locking, cramping and many more. I have achieved great things such as being one of the UKs rare kids to reach over Gold at the age of 9, auditioning for BGT and coming through to the grand final as the only soloist in the great big school dance off.

I have recently achieved being the first Bollywood dancer to come through to the grand final of Teenstar. I have just passed my audition for India’s second biggest (I think) competition that will be held in Chicago called the International India Icon. I’m also a great speaker as I came second in the ‘Your Shout’ competition.

National association of
Able Children in England

Cornelius Vermuyden are an official member of NACE (National association of Able Children in England).

Not only does this partnership support our development of our highest achieving pupils, it supports the development of every pupil in the school. We are committed to ensuring that a high level of challenge exists in the classroom in every lesson and to help potential convert to success and happiness for our pupils. We are firm believers that "rising tides lift all ships" and that if all students have a daily diet of challenging experiences at school and beyond, then this will help support their educational and personal development as learners and as people. Yet, as our 2016 GCSE results showed, those who come to us classed as more able achieve incredible results – for example, Callum Cuthbert leaving the school with 11 A* grades is an achievement that is not just well above the national average in terms of progress and achievement, but one that should be celebrated in terms of the school's work with its high achieving pupils.

However, here at Cornelius Vermuyden, we promote the ethos that all children must be given access to a positive mindset in terms of their learning. The message is clear; all young people are capable of reaching any goal they set their mind to if they are challenged and show a positive attitude to self - improvement . Cornelius Vermuyden places challenge and the importance of a 'growth mindset' at the heart of its teaching and learning vision for our pupils and our association with NACE is supporting this commitment to all pupils at the school.
