TOP SCHOOL IN NORFOLK
At Sheringham we aim for excellence for all of our students, whatever their abilities. The school makes no apologies for how it challenges all students to grapple enthusiastically over time with genuine difficulty in order to fulfil their academic, artistic and sporting potential, or how it sets high expectations of conduct and learning behaviours.
In our last inspection in May 2014, Ofsted judged the school Outstanding in behaviour and safety, and leadership and management. We are especially proud of judgements like,
‘Behaviour is outstanding. Students readily take responsibility for supporting each other and have highly positive attitudes to their learning.’
The inspectors recognised the good standards that students achieve in public examinations, especially in English and Mathematics, and praised the school saying,
‘Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school. It is underpinned by very effective curriculum arrangements…Students display a consistent thirst for knowledge.’
Of the classroom experience, inspectors wrote;
‘Strengths of teaching include warm and trusting relationships between staff and students, good subject knowledge, which is used to engage students and promote interest in subjects, and high quality questioning, which encourages students to think deeply about their work and the world around them.’
For the fifth year running the School has recorded an excellent set of GCSE results,
87% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades at GCSE and 75% achieved the so called 'gold standard' of 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Mathematics. This makes the school the highest performing non-fee paying school in Norfolk. We are also rightly proud that nearly half our students continue to satisfy the Ebacc measure.
The School also consolidated its position as the highest achieving public post-16 provider in the area. The vast majority of students will be studying at their first choice university including some of the top universities in the country.
I am excited to be taking over as Headteacher here. Sheringham is a proud town in a proud county and we are proud to serve its community by producing students who are knowledgeable, caring, eager to achieve and happy to take their places in a challenging and changing world. The students are wonderful, governors supportive and the staff is made up of exceptional professionals who are dedicated to leading our students towards resilience, curiosity and independence.
Come and visit us and see first-hand what makes this school such a special place for students, parents, carers and staff alike.

CHANGES TO SCHOOL UNIFORM FROM SEPTEMBER 2014
These changes have been made in consultation with students and governors in order to ensure uniformity of the dress code at school. However, we have endeavoured to keep it simple. We are making minor changes in order to ensure that parents do not have to purchase items such as blazers, shirts or ties. This makes our uniform very competitive price wise in comparison with other schools. Read more
