Norwich School to expand provision to pre-prep age range from September 2018

16 January 2018

Norwich School is pleased to announce that it will be expanding its provision to the pre-prep age range (Reception to Year 2) from September 2018. The new cohort will be housed in brand new facilities by a conversion of the ground floor of the Lower Close pavilion within the existing Lower School on Bishopgate.

Head Master, Steffan Griffiths, said, “We look forward to the educational benefits we can bring to children at this younger age-group, both during their pre-prep years and as a foundation for the rest of their time at Norwich School. This positive development also answers a long-standing request from a growing number of parents for a simplification of their children’s school career.”

This development continues an exciting period of improvements in all parts of the school. It builds particularly on recent Lower School developments such as the addition of the science laboratory, the astroturfing of the tennis courts and the construction of the outdoor classroom.

Master of the Lower School, John Ingham, said, “The Lower Close is a wonderful educational environment and we are delighted that it continues to go from strength to strength, including children being able to experience it from a younger age. This innovation will enable us to expand our collaborations with other schools and make further positive contributions to Norfolk’s overall provision.”

Registration for applications is open and an information evening will be held at 7pm on 1st February 2018 at the Lower School. To register for this event please visit
