What the school offers its staff

Hewett Academy is one of the most iconic schools in Norwich. We were graded as a ‘good’ school by Ofsted in our last inspection. Since then we have built strong relationships with our community and pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive school in which children from all backgrounds walk alongside the most diverse student population in Norwich. Our students demonstrate respect for each other and their teachers through calm and purposeful attitude around school, in lessons and during Hewett Lunch. We aspire to bridge the disadvantage gap for which the four pieces our students exhibited in the Royal Academy of Arts last year are a testament. This is achieved through our dedication to our community and the ambitious and broad knowledge-rich curriculum we provide. Once you are part of Hewett, you always will be - come and join the family.
