Welcome and thank you for your interest in Taverham High School

Taverham is a popular and successful 11-18 mixed comprehensive school in Norwich. We became part of the Enrich Learning Trust Family of schools in February 2024 and have approximately 1250 students on roll, over 140 members of staff and an annual budget in the region of £6 million.

Academically, attainment is high and with progress on an upward trajectory. The proportion of students passing five or more GCSE at grades A* - C (including English and maths) and making at least three levels of progress in English and maths far exceeds national expectations.

In our recent Ofsted report the inspectors made the summary judgement that the school continues to be good. Ofsted have recognised that the school has a 'caring, nurturing ethos and a culture of high achievement which is based firmly on the excellent relations promoted between students and staff.'

Extra-curricular activities are an important part of school life. There are extremely strong musical and sporting traditions but we are also proud to be involved in projects with local schools; with schools nationally; and with schools abroad, most notably in France, Germany and China. Our annual expedition has given students the opportunity to travel to Ghana, Romania, Peru, Borneo and Morocco.

The Local Governing Board, hosts a wealth and knowledge from both the world of education and beyond, and reflective of our community.

Applicants are encouraged to visit the school to experience the great learning environment we have created.
