Diss High School is a mixed, 11 – 18 standalone academy situated in the south Norfolk town of Diss. It is an academy converter supported by a single-academy trust called the Diss High School trust. With a well-deserved reputation for being a consistently ‘Good’ school, academic standards are high, and students gain places at Oxford and Cambridge every year. Governors are equally proud of those students following apprenticeship routes into their chosen careers. A larger than average size for a secondary school, the school will provide 1,200 places for secondary school students between the ages of 11-18 when fully subscribed.

The School is situated on the north-eastern edge of the town on an attractive 32-acre site and is well provided with playing fields. Specialist facilities include a good Library, Drama Studios, Music Suite, Art Studios, Workshops, Laboratories, Technology Rooms, Media Suite and a Conference Centre. Sixth Form students use specialist facilities in the main school, but also have a tutorial and social base, with some teaching accommodation, in ‘Uplands House’ – an adapted large Edwardian House on the school campus.

The pastoral system is year based with Heads of Year supported by an Assistant Head of Year and responsible for teams of tutors in each year group. These teams move with their year group through the School from Years 7-11. There is a separate tutor team for Sixth Form students. The efficiency and effectiveness of the pastoral system is generally regarded as a major strength of this school.
