Norwich School

Welcome to Norwich School

Norwich School is a co-educational, independent day school for pupils aged 4 to 18 and is the only school of its kind in the region.

Located in the historic Cathedral Close with a heritage dating back to 1096, our school is a lively place to learn and work, and our beautiful surroundings and the majestic presence of the great Cathedral inspire warm and lasting relationships.

We are one of the region’s top performing schools, graded “outstanding” by the Independent Schools Directorate and we have been recognised by the TES Independent School Awards, AMCIS Impact Awards, Norfolk Chamber’s Young Chamber Enterprise Recognition Awards and the Independent Schools Awards.

In addition to consistently achieving outstanding academic results, several of our sports teams and individuals represent the region at a national level. Our pupils also excel in the many extra-curricular activities available to them, in sport, performing arts, dance and community service and we are proud of the significant contributions we make to the wider community in which we live and work and the strong partnerships with have forged with other schools, charities, organisations and businesses on a local, national and global level. 

However, underpinning this, we believe our true values are reflected every day in the supportive atmosphere created by our engaging staff, by our broad curriculum, by our excellent facilities and finally by the pupils themselves.

Head, Steffan Griffiths, says: “Public examination performance is only one measure of a school’s effectiveness; we set more store by the holistic education we provide and the rounded individuals we seek to shape by the time they leave us. However, it is reassuring to know that academic performance remains strong as it is an important platform from which our pupils can prepare to make a positive contribution to 21st century society”.

We are also passionate about supporting career progression and championing education as a career path and as such Norwich School is a centre for PGCE placements, offering many different routes into teaching. We have close relationships with a number of Universities including UEA, Cambridge and Buckingham to offer placements to graduates. We are also linked with the Suffolk and Norfolk Initial Teacher Training Partnership and Norfolk Teacher Training Centre.
