We are proud to be the only University accredited laboratory school in Norfolk. As a Laboratory School we are committed to research-based practice which is strengthened through peer-to-peer learning, ongoing professional development and collaboration with other schools and partners.
Whilst there are accredited schools all over the world, we were the first in Norfolk to be selected. We were approached to be part of University of Bolton’s Lab School network because of our Good OFSTED rating, our strong exam results, our ethos and our record of researched-based pedagogy.
If you feel you have the right experience, skills and enthusiasm, and would like to join our highly committed team, then we would very much like to hear from you.
