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 aims and values are:
Pride and creative
Pastoral and Integrity
