About Norwich School

Norwich School is an independent, co-educational day school for pupils between the ages of four and eighteen. 

Set in the city’s historic Cathedral Close, the school is a traditional yet lively place to learn and combines a vibrant, imaginative culture with values of scholarship and mutual respect.

We hope that the following pages will provide a flavour of the school’s special character, which nurtures confidence, self-expression, warm and lasting relationships and a deep appreciation of learning.

While we consistently achieve outstanding academic results, we believe that an education for life is about more than statistics. Our ethos is rooted in our beautiful surroundings, in the inspirational presence of the great Cathedral, in a remarkable history of almost 1000 years. But our true essence is recreated every day by the supportive atmosphere created by our inspirational staff, by our broad curriculum, by our excellent facilities and finally by the pupils themselves.

Norwich School consists of a Lower and a Senior School. The Lower School is the base for our 4-11 year-old pupils (Reception - Year 6 ), while the Senior School caters for the 11-18 age range (Years 7-13).
