Principal's Welcome

Firstly, may I take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Principal at Wayland Academy Norfolk. Over the last 6 years I have seen Wayland Academy continuing to develop and improve. Progress measures and GCSE results illustrate the drive of Leadership and the passion of teachers to support students in achieving the very best that they can. It is a great privilege to be the Principal at Wayland Academy, I am delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with student, parents and teachers.  

As an Academy we are on a journey to OUTSTANDING. We secured a GOOD rating in 2013 and this was testament to students, parents, teachers and support staff. This GOOD rating was achieved in every aspect of school life.

At Wayland Academy we will always strive to offer a unique personalised learning experience, where students of all abilities are catered for and I will continue to expect every student to give their best every day and in every lesson.

About us

In today’s globalised, digital and social media age we are witnessing an unprecedented pace of change that shapes all aspects of how people relate to one another, how we work, learn and spend our leisure time. Already, Facebook has become “old” – older in fact than our Year 7 students who will join the Academy in September.
