Principal Message

A Welcome from Mr. Michael Rose, Principal

Wayland Academy Norfolk continues to respond to the needs and ambitions of the young people in this rural part of Norfolk.

Wayland Academy Norfolk is child centred and puts both individuals and groups at the heart of all our decisions and planning.

Wayland Academy Norfolk continues to work hard towards higher levels of achievement and attainment for all of our students. Young people today have a range of complex needs and challenges to face in an ever changing educational landscape. We are proud that our students have increased their rate of progress in English and Maths over the last three years. We are also proud that an increasing number of our students attain good grades across a wide range of academic and vocational subjects, increasing the ‘Value Added’ they achieve significantly. In 2013 Wayland Academy Norfolk achieved the 8th highest value score out of 52 other academies and high schools (DfE League Tables 2013 results).

We welcome visits to the academy and parents can be assured of a personal meeting with the Principal, Mr Rose.

School Policies

All policies are subject to review and will be updated periodically and as required by the new governing body.

Please note that any polices that refer to Wayland Community High School or WCHS remain valid until their review date.

See a list of our policies below.

The Ethos, Aims and Values of the School

As an Academy, we are proud of our rich and diverse curriculum.

Students historically leave Wayland Academy at 16 and progress to the best Sixth Form centres and Further Education colleges in Norfolk. Some also go on to attend the internationally recognised Gordonstoun independent school in Scotland. Year on year, more students move into Higher Education or gain employment in their chosen career path. We have ambitions to develop a post-16 faculty and opportunities on our site.

While recognising the rich cultural heritage of Norfolk, we expect our students to broaden their horizons, to aim high and to establish successful careers, for example, in research, engineering, management, languages and the sciences.

As well as ensuring that students have excellent numeracy and literacy skills, we offer a personalised, flexible and inclusive curriculum, which is specifically constructed to meet their individual interests, skills and needs.

Our dynamic curriculum is designed to stretch their imaginations, raise their expectations and enrich their knowledge across all subjects, including links to their community, both locally and internationally. We run a number of after-school clubs, regular holiday revision and skills training events, and work alongside business and industry to enable creative thinking and planning. Whether our students are aiming for Higher Education or are ready for the world of work through an apprenticeship programme, we prepare for all eventualities.

The Academy Values are:

  •     CHILD CENTRED
  •     DEVELOPMENTAL
  •     CREATIVE
  •     PRIDE
  •     ACHIEVEMENT
  •     INTEGRITY
