Norwich School is delighted to have been listed as one of the 8 ‘Best British Schools representing the Arts’ in a report by School House Magazine. At a time when funding cuts in education are in the headlines, the role that independent schools play in supporting and developing new talent in the arts is vital. It is something that Norwich School encourages and pupils have plenty of opportunities to take part in drama, dance and music productions throughout the year, both in the school’s recently renovated Blake Studio and in external venues throughout Norwich.
The Drama Director in Residence, Matilda Ziegler, commented “The arts are taken very seriously at Norwich School and invested in heavily, pupils jump on board and really want to get involved.”
The report has recognised the school at a national level for its role in setting up the Young Norfolk Arts festival six years ago as a multi-art platform for young people.
