Academic Enrichment

Extending learning beyond the classroom is integral to the Thetford Grammar School experience, it is one of the vehicles for helping pupils develop a life-long love of learning. Here are some of the regular ways in which our school provides academic enrichment for pupils of all ages:


  • Lunchtime and after school clubs, for example Scholars' Club 
  • Off-site trips and activities beyond those tied to the curriculum
  • Entry in a wide range of local, national and international competitions such as Science Olympiads 
  • Nationally and internationally recognised further qualifications including Arts Award, Duke of Edinburgh's Award, LAMDA, ABRSM and the EPQ


At the core of our academic enrichment offer is a desire to build a programme that suits the current needs and interests of our pupils and broad skills of our talented and dedicated staff. This means our offer is frequently refreshed to reflect the best of our community's intellectual curiosity.
