The Curriculum

Learning and scholarship are at the heart of a Norwich School education. Pupils benefit from specialised facilities and a broad curriculum enriched through foreign exchanges, trips and cultural visits.

Games & The Arts

Our games programme offers pupils opportunities to explore different sports through comprehensive major and minor sports programmes. Arts enjoy a strong profile and pupils are encouraged to develop their own diverse talents and to make their own mark on the creative life of the school.

Pastoral Care

Pupils receive pastoral support through two distinct structures. Pupils are allocated to a house upon joining the school and remain in that house as they move up through the school. Each house is managed by a housemaster. The day-to-day care of pupils falls to tutors, who monitor their academic progress, general welfare and co-curricular involvement. Complementing the house structure is the ‘horizontal’ year structure which is overseen by heads of section.

University Places

75 per cent placed at Top 30 UK universities. 15 places at Oxbridge.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Learning and scholarship are at the heart of the broad education that Norwich School provides. Christian values – notably love and compassion for one another – underpin activities and relationships. We also believe it is the quality of human relationships which forms the special ingredient in the Norwich School recipe.

Outstanding Characteristics

  • The setting is a special and integral part of a Norwich School education. Daily assemblies in the cathedral provide a unique sense of history and community. And, being right in the middle of the city is an added bonus.
  • The school seems to have the knack of producing pupils who are not in a mould (celebrating people’s strengths and talents of all kinds is really important), but who are self-confident without arrogance, who are warm and open, and mix readily.
  • The sense of community is at the core of school life today. Everyone looks out for each other, regardless of age and house.
