Waycroft Primary School opened in September 1998 as a 14 class primary with 400 on roll and 52 children in the nursery. Pupil numbers have remained at about 450 and future forecasts predict similar numbers.
Two well respected schools, Waycroft Infant and Waycroft Junior, which shared the same site were amalgamated. A substantial remodelling programme resulted in a superb range of facilities that includes a library, nursery unit, ICT suite, large hall and most recently a drama hall.
All our classrooms are linked to the internet and the application of computer technology provides an important focus in all areas of the curriculum. Facilities for developing children’s creative and sporting talents are also well catered for with excellent resources for art, design, music and PE. An extensive range of extra curricular clubs further extend the opportunities for children to make use of the well equipped site.
Waycroft Primary became an Academy at the end of August 2011. Click here to view the photos of our 'Official Opening Ceremony' with Michael Eavis.
