Norwich School is committed to providing outreach opportunities and carrying out partnership work with regional, national and international organisations. Our ethos talks of a loving and compassionate community and one of our key aims is to prepare our young people for a lifetime of leadership and service.
Our pupils and staff are actively encouraged to undertake voluntary activities in the wider community, from fundraising to helping out with practical tasks like gardening or working with food banks.
Just some of the areas that we support include:
- Access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects;
- Literacy and language
- Access to Higher Education
- The Arts
- Local community
- Local education
- Wider education
A summary of the work conducted by the school can be found in our Reaching Out booklet.
