Lower School


Welcome to Norwich Lower School

The Lower School is in the Lower Close (on the east side of the Cathedral) and caters for boys and girls aged 4-11.  Its impressive facilities and wonderful opportunities give pupils an excellent start to their Norwich School education.

The vast majority of pupils from the Lower School progress to the Senior School at the age of eleven. Entry is based on the recommendation of the Head of the Lower School and there is usually no requirement to sit the formal entrance examination.
