Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to Thetford Grammar School, where centuries of successfully nurturing academic excellence is drawn upon as we prepare all learners for success in the 21st Century


We believe in the importance of a small school setting where a detailed picture of each pupil – their strengths, their needs, their hopes – is 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.

The excellent relationships between pupils and staff result in a strong family atmosphere.

Small classes ensure that pupils receive individual attention from teachers. The excellent relationships between pupils and staff result in a strong family atmosphere. Knowing our pupils well encourages them to take risks, safe and certain of our support for 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 increasingly confident, resilient and able throughout their time with us.

Our pupils achieve outstanding results at GCSE and A level, with the majority of our Sixth Form going on to study at universities in the top tier of UK and global rankings including Oxford and Cambridge.

It is my great privilege to lead Thetford Grammar School; I look forward to meeting you, and your children, and introducing you to the exceptional pupils and teachers that make us the wonderful school that we are.
