David Dent was delighted on behalf of the Chamber to attend the Wayland Academy’s Achievement Award event for the class of 22 on the evening of 28th November.
The Chamber is a supporter of our local academy, and seeks to promote entrepreneurship and employment opportunities for local students as they progress from school to work. The Academy students contributed to a survey that formed an important contribution to the application for Levelling-Up funds for the Business, Community and Leisure Centre on the Watton Wayland House site, incorporating a digital games arena, cinema, podcast studios and space for business in the digital sector.
The Chamber was delighted to sponsor the student awards and to see the school progress under the stewardship of its Principal Glen Allott, the Inspiration Trust and Academy Committee Chair Harry Buscall. Fantastic exam results in 2022 saw the Wayland Academy ranked fourth highest performing school in Norfolk. Incredible results well above the national average in English and Maths with half a grade better overall across academic subjects than similar students across England. Congratulations to all!
Having a thriving secondary school is one of the factors that people and businesses consider when relocating to a new area. We want to keep growing our business community here in Wayland, so make sure you let your business contacts know that the Wayland Academy is one of the best in Norfolk!
