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 our work conducted by the school in 2017-18 can be found here in our Reaching Out booklet.

Discover Your Ability Day

Following the success of last year's Discover Your Ability Day with Norwich charity Able2B, we will be holding the second event this May. 

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/

The result of Norwich School's partnership with Friend In Deed charity, this event sees teams ranging in ages from 0-90 taking part in fun sports activities. Members of our community of all ages have attended previous events, and this year's Intergenerational Sports Day will be our third.
