What says..

Emphasis – especially in sixth form – on independent learning – hence many areas for quiet study. Lots of short term individual support for those struggling with individual subjects. ‘If you’re stuck you can go to a teacher – you’re never made to feel embarrassed. They encourage you to come.’ Universal approval of the new games afternoon which makes for more time on pitches and courts and better squad development. Improved performance as a result and general praise for new head of sport and the introduction of teams for those not destined for sporting stardom...

What the school says...

We encourage our students to experience as much as possible during their time with us by developing intellectual curiosity and a bold, confident approach to tackling both academic and personal challenges. Music, sport and drama are all strong features of the school. Choosing from more than 20 music ensembles to hockey, tennis, netball, gymnastics and lacrosse through to a variety of dance and drama groups the opportunities are broad and varied. In addition, there are up to 30 co-curricular clubs including Debating, Rowing, Textiles, Fencing, Amnesty, Robotics, Chess and the Cosmos (Science) Group. Girls can also go exploring or enter the world of business through the Duke of Edinburghs Award and Young Enterprise Schemes.

Academically, a wide range of subjects is available - currently 24 at A level and 20 at GCSE. Future engineers, artists, physicists and politicians all thrive at Norwich High School. We are proud of both the depth and breadth of our curriculum, and of our girls who achieve excellent academic results while enthusiastically engaging in the breadth of opportunities available to them which range from a vast array of cultural exchanges and voluntary service activities to timetabled My Time sessions and an innovative curriculum across the whole school - Early Years to Sixth Form.

Scholarships (including Music, Drama, Art and Design and Sport Scholarships) and bursaries are available in the senior school. Our Registrar will be pleased to give any further information you require, and can be contacted on 01603 453265.
