Welcome to Senior School
Teaching, support and guidance
Academic study lies at the heart of Thetford Grammar School. We are determined to give our students every opportunity to make the most of their abilities through a combination of well taught lessons, a wide range of clubs and extra-curricular activities, a supportive learning environment and by enabling students to take responsibility for the academic direction they wish to take.
With guidance from their teachers and tutors, students are able to make increasingly important choices about their programme of study as they progress through the school.
Initially, most subjects are compulsory. In Year 9 we support and advise students as they face very important decisions about the GCSE courses they will follow. Throughout Years 10 and 11, we encourage our students to explore what is available at A-Level and how it would match their personal aptitudes and interests. It is important to us that students’ choices are positively made and right for them individually.
