Norwich School has a long and fascinating history. Its roots and the buildings it occupies date back to the foundation of the Cathedral. Each day, the pupils and teachers go about their business in and around magnificent medieval buildings.

It is impossible to ignore the sense of tradition and the beauty of the surroundings.

The School has a long list of distinguished former pupils, including Sir Edward Coke, Humphry Repton, Lt Col Derek Seagrim VC, Major Hugh Seagrim GC, Lord Blake and Lord Ashcroft.

The most famous of all Old Norvicensians is Horatio, Viscount Nelson.
