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.

  • Access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects;
  • Literacy and language
  • Access to Higher Education
  • The Arts
  • Sport
  • Local community
  • Local education

Techathon

Norwich School

Norwich School are proud hosts Techathon, which is now in its third year. This family event is perfect for children aged 8-18 who have a keen interest in science and technology and takes place over two days during the Easter holiday. 

·  Families can work in teams compete to take on a technology challenge

·  No prior coding experience needed

·  Expert help from a team of experienced tech mentors

·  Cost  £10 including lunch and refreshments (concessions available)

It's a great opportunity to get children excited by technology - and for those who already have some experience to stretch themselves. Children enjoy themselves, learn new skills, and return to school with renewed enthusiasm.

Discover Your Ability Day

Able2B work with disabled children in the region by offering adapted sports programmes and activities designed to help them reach their potential. The charity strives to break down the barriers those who are disabled face and engage the wider community in learning about disability. 

The Discover Your Ability event brings children from across the county, both disabled and able-bodied, who form friendships as they learn about each other. Over several weeks, teams get to know each other and work on their fitness in order to take part in a truly inclusive sports day held at Norwich School. 

If you or your child is interested in taking part in this day, more information can be found on the Discover Your Ability website here: https://able2b.co.uk/what-is-the-dya-event/
