Find out What’s the Big IDEA

Wayland Academy Open Evening – Thursday 26th September starting at 6 pm

Firstly, may I take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Principal at Wayland Academy.  I would like to extend a warm invitation to you to come and meet the staff and students at Wayland Academy’s Open Evening. During the evening you will be able to have quality time with the Heads of Faculty and Lead Professionals, see exciting demonstrations and witness first-hand the continued transformation that is taking place at the Academy.

Over the last 10 years I have seen Wayland Academy continuing to develop and adapt to the changing landscape of education.  Our students have the world at their fingertips, but they also require new skill sets to thrive and succeed in a constantly changing environment.  Like the digital world, education continues to evolve rapidly as new standards and performance measures are introduced.  

At Wayland Academy Norfolk we approach change with a clear focus on the Big IDEA (Innovate, Discover, Explore, Activate), rather than rush for quick fixes or knee-jerk responses.  Our sense of mission at the Academy is clear: putting students first, enabling success and building essential life skills.

My aim as principal is to develop students’ knowledge, skills and emotional intelligence so that they are best prepared for the wider world and life beyond Wayland Academy, whether that is on to university, straight into employment or on to an apprenticeship.  Visitors will be able to see firsthand the expansion of the Design Technology Block with the £250,000 development of Food & Nutrition, the new Performing Art Hub that includes a new professional standard Dance Studio and a new Drama Studio. There has also been extensive renovation to the Sports Hall. All of this work was completed in 2019.

Every day the Academy is a rewarding and exhilarating place to lead.  Working with students through their time at the Academy is a great privilege.  Our students, in turn, inspire others to greater success in the future.

Wayland Academy provides a quality education for all students. We provide students with the best route to success and inspire them to develop themselves both academically and personally.  We will also be offering a series of Open Mornings on Monday 30th September, Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd October. This will entail a tour of the Academy which will start at Reception at 9:15am each morning.  Please contact the Academy to book your preferred choice of date.

If you require any further information please contact the Academy.
