Headteacher's Welcome

We cultivate and nurture attitudes of support, respect and care in all our activities and relationships and for all our children. Equally important is learning. We have set high standards for everything we do and strongly believe in the importance of the core skills of communication, reading, writing and mathematics. Come and visit! You are sure to get a feel for what we are all about as soon as you walk in. The staff share in my belief that all children can achieve success, with the right teaching, guidance and nurturing environment that we promote here. We encourage our pupils to develop that self-belief and we set high expectations for them, because we know that they achieve their best when they are challenged, engaged, and motivated. Our excellent pastoral support system provides access for all children to staff,  who are there to listen, challenge, and engage them in their school day. In the Junior School, each child is also part of our house system, where they can feel part of a team. This instills a strong sense of belonging and community. We are proud of the wonderful schools we have created for the children and families in North Walsham- please come and join us!

The Infant School is an effective place to learn: Ofsted have judged us to be outstanding.

The Junior School has also been judged to be good overall and outstanding in the areas of behaviour and safety.
