Great Wyrley Academy is home to over 500 students aged 11 to 18 and 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, as well as attracting students from Cannock, Bloxwich and North Walsall.

The schools motto is "Relentlessly Pursuing Excellence". This applies equally to the twin objectives of every student achieving academic success and fulfilling their potential. Great Wyrley is a school built on traditional values. The ethos and beliefs are evident in "The Wyrley Way". This is a charter committed to by the whole school community and celebrates the characteristics of respect and responsibility. The school's active house system underlines these traits every day.

The school has been on a remarkable journey over the past 3 years. Our exam results showed significant progress in 2019 and our CAG and TAG data was consistent with the upward trajectory of the school. This is down to the incredible work of students and staff who have worked tirelessly to make this possible.

In addition, we have significantly upgraded the school environment - investing heavily in improving the building to provide better learning facilities for our young people. This summer we have added a state-of-the-art 3G pitch, massively enhancing our sport facilities.

It is an incredibly exciting time to be at Great Wyrley Academy as we look to build on the excellent three years we've had as part of Windsor Academy Trust.
