Head Master's welcome
There are good schools all around this country that achieve fine results, feature impressively in league tables and do wonderfully well. Norwich School is certainly in that category, but it also has local character, delightful quirks and idiosyncrasies, beautiful surroundings and an unusual history. And it is made up of people who are uncommonly friendly, bright and energetic. This is a brilliant place to learn, because the love of learning is our central purpose. We believe that good scholarship makes life more fulfilling and opens up opportunities that extend far beyond school.
Being conscious of our amazing heritage, we operate in a pretty traditional way. Not stuffy or overly formal - but disciplined, organised and respectful. Pupils are expected to be smart, on time, courteous and civilised. The entire Senior School gathers in the Cathedral every morning to reflect upon important issues, to worship together and to consider the Christian principles that are at the heart of our ethos.
Within this loving, compassionate environment, we find that teaching and learning are all the more effective. And, I must emphasise, we make it our mission to ensure that no single pupil disrupts the teaching and learning of others. Every Norwich School boy or girl has an inalienable right: to come to school every day knowing that they will be able to enjoy their learning experiences without someone else making their life unpleasant or distracting their teacher from what he or she is trying to do.
Norwich School selects on academic potential, attitude, and all-round ability. We are looking for positive young people who relish challenging subjects, are enthusiastic about study and are willing to contribute to the broader aspects of school life: whether in music, drama, sport, debating, clubs, societies, Sea Scouts, the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, charitable fund-raising, community service or the many other activities that they will encounter here.
This website can offer only a flavour of the work we do here. If you wish to find out more, you would be welcome at any of our open days or to arrange a visit with our Registrar. I look forward to meeting you.
