What says..

Tots in Polliwiggle Nursery – that being the Norfolk word for tadpole, don’t you know? Good, colourful clutter here and there – not one of those sanitised juniors; atmosphere is relaxed, orderly and purposeful. Lovely library with beanbags invites curling up and wallowing. Lessons are stimulating and fun. 'They’ve got to be worth getting out of bed for,’ says the school, and much thought goes into structuring the curriculum. Good support in school for those with minor learning difficulties – small group work and an imminent boost to the numbers of LAs when we visited. Woods, fields, jungle gym...

What the school says...

The Junior School at Norwich High School for Girls is situated in its own self-contained building, Stafford House and maintains its own identity and character. The academic education we offer is of the very highest quality in all areas of the curriculum and a sense of fun, enjoyment and enthusiasm pervades all we do. We offer our girls every opportunity not only to develop their own particular talents and skills, be they academic, sporting, musical or artistic but also to become productive and caring members of a community. We do this by offering lots of activities to help them to establish strong friendships which will often last into adulthood and by looking for ways to become involved in the local community.

The best way to find out more about what we do is to see it first hand. We would be delighted to welcome you to the Junior School - please contact us to arrange a visit or Taster Session.

Years you were there

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head of juniors

Since September 2016, Nick Tiley-Nunn, previously deputy head at The Old School Henstead. BA in primary education from Canterbury Christ Church; has also taught at Woodbridge School and been assistant head at Radnor House. He is a regional lead for primary maths and author of 'How to teach primary maths - anyone can feed sweets to sharks'.


Nursery from 3 and not oversubscribed – the locals being, seemingly, a little slow to seize their opportunities. Assessment via a play day when they look for manual dexterity, interaction, responsiveness etc. Reception has 20 and a further 20 by year 3. Again, currently not too much pressure on places but, as the place starts to zoom, this is unlikely to stay the case.
