Norwich School features in the Tatler Schools Guide 2020

08 November 2019

We are delighted to be included in this year's Tatler Schools Guide as one of the top schools in the UK.

The Tatler Schools Guide is an the impartial guide to all the best public and prep schools in the UK. 

Our review can be seen below:

"'Fantastic results. Lovely children. Wonderful location. Something for everyone.’ These are the words of one happy parent. Set in the heart of the city, Norwich School is a melting pot of Norfolk families who rejoiced when the pre-prep opened its doors in 2018, making it a ‘straight-through school’. The central location is a dream for public transport links and the school has a genius buddying system that ensures the younger ones soon get city savvy. In the sixth form, they’re joined by 15 overseas students – an initiative that is immensely popular with staff, parents and pupils due to the added ‘educational and cultural value,’ according to one insider. Most school days begin in the cathedral, allowing the school to come together for a period of news sharing, thought gathering and rousing hymn singing, often gate-crashed by Budge the cathedral cat. Driven by Head Steffan Griffiths (who has been in post for nearly a decade), Norwich is a community-focused school with an award-winning outreach programme that covers sport and academics, plus access to higher education and the arts. Exam results are consistently strong here – there were 59 per cent A*–As at A-level and 71 per cent at GCSE in 2018 – and the vast majority of students go on to top UK universities with a handful heading off to Hong Kong, Europe and North America, all with the support of the brilliant and active alumni community."
