It gives me enormous pleasure to welcome you to Great Wyrley Academy. I am extremely proud to have led the school since we became part of the Windsor Academy Trust family in September 2018.

Situated in South Staffordshire, the school serves the communities of Great Wyrley and Landywood, although we attract many students from Cannock, Bloxwich and North Walsall.

Our school motto is “Relentlessly Pursuing Excellence”. This applies equally to our twin objectives of every student achieving academic success and fulfilling their personal potential.

We are a school built on traditional values.  Our ethos and beliefs are evident in “The Wyrley Way”. This is a charter committed to by our whole school community and celebrates the twin tenets of respect and responsibility. Our active House system underlines these traits every day.

We have been on a remarkable journey over the past twelve months. Our summer exam results showed significant improvement. I am incredibly proud of the students and staff who worked tirelessly to make this possible. We should be amongst the most improved schools in the region, if not the whole of the country.

In addition, we have significantly upgraded the school environment- investing in the building to provide better learning facilities for our young people.

It is an incredibly exciting time to be at Great Wyrley Academy as we look to build on the excellent first year we’ve had as part of Windsor Academy Trust. Please come and visit us – we are incredibly proud of our school, staff and students and would love to show you around.

Mr Ian Moreton
