About Us

Norfolk Academies, part of the TEN Group, is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT), a company limited by guarantee.

Norfolk Academies holds ultimate responsibility for all decisions regarding the running of the individual academies and is accountable for their performance. However, Norfolk Academies delegates some of the matters to Academy Councils (ACs) in order to enable more focused local control, though it remains legally responsible for standards across all academies within the MAT.

At present there are four academies within the Norfolk Academies MAT:

Wayland Junior pupils decorate model jet for RAF Centenary

Pupils at Wayland Junior Academy Watton have contributed to preparations for next year’s Centenary celebration of the Royal Air Force by colourfully decorating a model of a F-35 Lightning II jet, which will go on display in the town from March until September next year.

The 4-feet long fibreglass model of the jet has been covered in more than 300 individually-coloured versions of the Wayland Junior logo, which is a letter ‘w’.  Some pupils incorporated words and phrases into their designs, to reflect the values of their school community or as messages of appreciation for the RAF.

Achievement Evening marks successes of Wayland Academy's class of 2017

Following a year of record-breaking results at the TEN Group Academy, the event provided an opportunity to recognise pupils’ individual subject achievements and to celebrate their progression on to A Levels and college courses at a wide range of sixth forms, colleges and training providers.
