School Vision/Ethos


The only way we grow is by trying new things, from the way we teach to finding new technologies. We are always on the lookout for better ways of doing things. At Wayland Academy, we are not afraid to push boundaries, break tradition and innovate to educate. 


Understanding what makes someone who they are is extremely powerful. From their strenghts to their weaknesses, their beliefs to their culture. We can give young people the opportunities to discover who they are and who they want to become, academically and emotionally. 


There is a big wide world out there and we want to share it with our pupils. Our teaching goes beyond the classroom, giving them real experiences which allow them to develop the key skills needed to grasp new opportunities, and lead them to a life they love. 


We equip our young people with the confidence to believe in themselves. Supporting them on every step of that journey, overcoming any obstacles and rewarding all success, big or small. So when it's time to move on they feel like they can take on the world.
