Welcome to Wayland Academy
We’re a community school dedicated to widening the world of every single one our students, both academically and culturally.
We are dedicated to always striving ahead and innovating, to make sure that every child entrusted to us is equipped not only for the careers of today, but also those that don’t exist yet.
I’m proud to lead a school at the heart of its community. Our students, families, teaching teams, support staff and wider community are united by their shared aim – to create a brighter future for Watton, the surrounding villages and those that call them home
At Wayland Academy we approach change with a clear focus on the Big IDEA - innovate, discover, explore and activate - rather than rush for quick fixes or knee-jerk responses. Our mission is clear: putting students first, enabling success and building essential life skills.
Every day the academy is a rewarding and exhilarating place to lead. Working with students through their time at our academy is a great privilege. Our students in turn inspire others to greater success in the future.
