Formerly a state ran community school under Staffordshire, Great Wyrley was converted to an Academy for the academic year 2018/19 following a period of Ofsted special measures, and joined the Windsor Academy Trust. Great Wyrley Academy is located at the extreme south of the Staffordshire border with the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall in the West Midlands, and therefore the school educates pupils from both areas. It has played a major role in the village for many years and are known for their music and performance events throughout the year.
The school has facilities including 35+ classrooms, 8 science laboratories, 6 computer rooms, 2 design and technology workshops, creative art suites, a 300 seat theatre, a sports gym, a sixth form centre and a swimming pool.
