Partnerships at Norwich School

Together We Can 

Our latest publication, Together We Can, is a summary of our partnerships activity from 2019-20. The school is committed to making a positive impact in our community and Together We Can is a celebration of the different ways in which we seek to make a difference. 

Our thanks go to the many charities, organisations and schools who have made all of this possible and we are grateful to the members of the Norwich School community who have shown a true dedication to helping others.

 

Norwich School is committed to providing partnership opportunities and carrying out outreach work with both local, 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 partnerships and community work in 2018-19 can be found in our Reaching Out Video 2018-19 and Reaching Out Infographic.

Norfolk Youth Summit 2021/22

After the success of last year's inaugural events, Norwich School is organising a series of meetings called The Norfolk Youth Summit for 2021/22.

The series of meetings are organised and driven by pupils from many different schools and provide an opportunity for young people across our county to come together to discuss the most important issues facing their gerenation.

With talks from expert speakers, each session invited pupils to contribute to a greater discussion. We hope that each school’s representatives will then go back to their community to raise the issues in their own schools and begin making active changes. 

The Summit is open to pupils in years 11 and 13 and registrations will open early in the Autumn term. For more information, please email partnerships@norwich-school.org.uk.
