What the school says...

Town Close School is a co-educational preparatory school for children aged 3 to 13. Last inspected in November 2011, the School was adjudged to be outstanding in every single aspect (twelve in total), which places us in a very select band, among the finest schools in the country.
/> We value our individual girls and boys for the breadth and variety of their talents, and celebrate effort and commitment in every part of school life. Preparing our children for the future is at the heart of all we do so that when the time comes for them to leave Town Close School, they move seamlessly into very good senior schools locally and nationally, a good many celebrating scholarship success in a variety of subject areas. Central to this success is the quality of the School's teaching, which was graded 'outstanding' throughout the School and across the whole curriculum.

Our beautiful, wooded, fifteen acre site near Norwich city centre, gives all our children space and freedom, and contributes substantially to our reputation as an outstandingly happy school. We enjoy the very best of modern facilities, but more important still, is the sense of community that exists here. ...Read more

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

High levels of expectation –setting from reception in literacy, increasing to full blown setting by ability in years 7 and 8.
