Welcome to Thetford Grammar School. We are an all through independent school educating pupils and students from the age of 3 until 19.
To provide a unique, personalised education for all pupils aged 3-18 years;
To celebrate and support each child as an individual, finding their strengths and challenging them to achieve and to grow;
To provide a stimulating curriculum and excellent levels of pastoral care that enable the highest possible academic achievement and personal development of each pupil;
To cultivate in our pupils an international outlook that prepares them for success beyond school and inspires them to contribute positively as global citizens.
We believe in the importance of a small school setting where an in-depth knowledge of each pupil – their strengths, their needs, their hopes – are known by all staff. This means we are able to set challenges appropriate to our pupils’ ability levels, ensuring that they are always being stretched to achieve the very best of which they are capable.
Being a small school allows us to be flexible and creative with our curriculum. Small classes ensure that pupils receive individual attention from teachers. The excellent relations between pupils and staff result in a strong family atmosphere. Knowing our pupils well allows us to encourage them to take risks safe in the knowledge that we will support them.
We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities because we know that well-rounded young people are best equipped to thrive academically and socially. Our pupils have many opportunities to develop artistic, sporting, musical and linguistic skill through additional classes, clubs and activities. This approach means pupils become increasing confident, resilient and able throughout their time with us.
We pride ourselves on caring for the individual by emphasising personal development, academic excellence and sound preparations for a global future.
We promote academic achievement within a respectful and caring atmosphere where traditional standards are valued.
We help students develop their character through a wide range of educational pursuits, leadership endeavours and extra-curricular activities, whilst nurturing their personal qualities and self-esteem at every opportunity.
Our commitment to these priorities help pupils become well-balanced, happy and interesting people who are a pleasure to meet and know.
Our hope is that they will become successful and considerate leaders that can contribute to a better world.
