Welcome to North Walsham High School

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision - it impacts on their future aspirations and also on their happiness for the next few years. We are proud of our school and our students for what they achieve whilst they are here, and in their lives beyond.

We offer a caring, calm and nurturing environment for students to learn and develop. Every individual is supported to achieve the very highest standards they can with first rate teaching and facilities. Our aim is for students to feel secure, happy and confident, and for their relationships with staff and other students to be built around mutual respect so they can thrive in all aspects of school life.

We would love to invite you to our Open Evenings on Thursday 21 September between 6-8pm. We appreciate that this is likely to be the first Open Evening you will attend and so we are also offering a second opportunity on Thursday 19 October, when we will be holding a second Open Evening for those that could not make the first one or those who still have not made up their minds.

It is my belief that the school improvement we have undertaken has made our school the best Secondary School in North Norfolk, with the best chances for students to be successful, as well as offering the widest possible extra curricular opportunities.  At what other school does every child learn a musical instrument in Year 7, every child take part in a theatrical performance in Year 8 and complete the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award in Year 9? None that I know of!

Don’t take my word for it. Please come along to our open Evening and hear from Parents who have moved their children here mid year having spent time looking at alternatives, parents whose children were successful in last year’s exams, Year 7 students who joined last year and our Student Leadership Team. All of whom will speak to you and let you know what it is like to be a part of the most exciting school family in Norfolk.
