Great Wyrley High School is an 11 to 18 comprehensive school of approximately 850 students including 90 in the Sixth Form. Our catchment area predominantly covers the villages of Great Wyrley and Cheslyn Hay and we have an increasing number of students from our neighbouring county of Walsall choosing to attend our school.
We believe in high aspirations and expect our students to achieve good examination outcomes with the support and guidance of our committed staff.
Students are encouraged to become responsible citizens, who actively contribute to the school and local community. To do this, we promote and model mental, physical, spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing.

Aims & Ethos
At Great Wyrley we strive to ensure that every lesson counts, for every child, every day. This is both in and outside of the classroom. We expect teachers to deliver engaging lessons which will enable students to make good progress. In order for this to happen, positive behaviour is reinforced to ensure all learning experiences are productive for pupils and teachers in every class. We expect students to challenge themselves in every lesson.
Every day, we are amazed by the resilience, determination and ambition of our students. Whatever their individual talents, everyone in our school is encouraged to reach their full potential. With inspiration like this, who knows what your child could achieve?
The curriculum and approach is designed to inspire all of our students to succeed. At Great Wyrley, learners gain the ability, skills and confidence to achieve their personal goals. Whatever they are, every students talents are equally celebrated and nurtured.
We support every student from the most able through to those requiring learning support. The curriculum is constantly evolving, to better suit the wants and needs of our learners and their families.
Your child will receive excellent levels of care, advice and guidance. Our staff offer empathy, understanding and impressive subject knowledge. A programme of advice and guidance will provide support, helping students to make the choices that are right for them, enabling them to realise their future ambitions.
