Outreach

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
  • Sport
  • Local community
  • Local education
  • Wider education
  • Charity

A summary of the work conducted by the school can be found in our Reaching Out booklet.

Our 2017-18 Reaching Out booklet can be found here.

Intergenerational Sports Day with Friend In Deed

29th June 2019

Once again, the school will be holding an Intergenerational Sports Day with charity Friend In Deed. The event will see participants aged from 0-90 years old take part in sporting activities. The aim is to help integrate the older generations into our community and to forge links between old and young, whilst raising awareness of those living with dementia.

 

Discover Your Ability 

Sunday 2nd June 2019

Norwich School has been working with Able2B and the charity Just4children to hold a "Discover Your Ability" event at the school. We asked 30 disabled children and 30 Norwich School children to work together in teams to take part in sports day activities, including a running/walking race around the Cathedral grounds and a cycle ride. Teams were carefully paired together to match interests and likes, and they worked together in the run-up to the event to decide on a strategy for completing the course to the best of their ability. The day was a visual display of how changing the perceptions of disability and achieving full inclusivity can lead to improved outcomes for everyone.

We are inviting pupils across the region to take part in a creative writing project, by submitting a piece of prose, poetry, lyrics, script or audio, in response to the Dying Matters campaign I Wish We'd Spoken Earlier.

This exciting opportunity has resulted in some very thoughtful and poignant submissions. A published version will be available here soon.

 

Sensational Science Workshops

Norwich Lower School

The Lower School is delighted to invite pupils from local primary schools for a day of scientific learning with our resident scientist Mr Worton. Pupils will don lab coats and goggles to become "mini scientists" for the day, which will conclude in the launch of a class rocket. We look forward to welcoming more primary schools in the Summer Term.
