We look forward to welcoming you to Cathedral Close.

Our Open Morning aims to give a good understanding of how the school works and an idea of the diverse range of academic and co-curricular opportunities that we offer, as well as give a glimpse of the distinctive qualities and special atmosphere that make this a wonderful school.

We encourage you to explore the historic grounds through our self-led tours, to watch some activities and to talk to members of the school community who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Our Admissions Team will be available to answer any specific admissions questions.

Why Norwich School?

Norwich School is an independent, co-educational day school for pupils between the ages of four and eighteen. Set in the Cathedral Close, the school’s special character nurtures confidence, self-expression, warm and lasting relationships and a deep appreciation of learning.

While we consistently achieve outstanding academic results, we believe that an education for life is about more than statistics. Our ethos is rooted in our beautiful surroundings, in the inspirational presence of the great Cathedral, in a remarkable history of almost 1000 years. But our true essence is recreated every day by the supportive atmosphere created by our inspirational staff, by our broad curriculum, by our excellent facilities and finally by the pupils themselves.
