About Us

We aim to offer an education that supports and challenges each child to fulfil their true potential. We want our pupils to leave Wicklea confident, motivated and fully prepared for the next stage of their education and to look back on their time here with affection and pride.

As well as having high expectations of our staff and pupils, we also look for commitment from parents, families and carers. We want you to join us in a partnership that puts children’s success and well-being at the centre of everything we do.

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.
