About Us

Our children enjoy learning always trying to do their best; they also feel safe and happy and learn that everyone is important and brings something special to our world. Our pupils know how to look after each other and their environment by making positive lifestyle choices linked to our work on Rights Respecting Schools. Staff and children pride themselves on high standards of work and behaviour and are rewarded by seeing the children progress so well in the classroom and on the playground.

Educating the future generation is a privilege which we are keen to share with parents, families and carers. Through strong partnerships we can support children to be the best they can be socially, academically and by nurturing their individual talents. We are all proud of our school.


Living and Learning together is the school Mission Statement.

The Waycroft Academy community very much believe that we are a team of adults and children who are all on a learning journey. We share the excitement of achieving and learning new things. We all have different strengths, interests and things we find difficult, because of this we believe passionately that Waycroft will deliver a broad and balanced curriculum and a range of clubs and enrichment activities.

Waycroft Multi-Academy Trust

We are proud to be part of Waycroft Multi-Academy Trust.

The Trust is a group of schools all located in South Bristol where the Directors and staff work together to create learning environments which promote high quality and enjoyable educational experiences suitable for every child. Although the curriculum, vision and ethos are consistent across the schools, each establishment has its own unique identity and serves its own community.

Waycroft MAT staff and children pride themselves on the high standards of work, pastoral care and discipline. As a result the traditional values of hard work, outstanding behaviour, a dedication to learning and personal challenge in all areas are evident. The curriculum is exciting, inspiring and rigorous with the resulting learning being a reward in itself. 

There is a clear focus on school improvement across the MAT to ensure pupils have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our children participate fully in the life of the school and leave fully equipped with the necessary social, technological and common sense skills to be outstanding citizens ready for the next stage of their education. This can only be achieved because of the commitment and support from everyone associated with our MAT.
