Teaching in Norfolk
Education in Norfolk is incredibly diverse. Norfolk is the fifth largest shire county in England and has schools in urban centres, rural villages, coastal towns and market towns, all with their own strengths and challenges.
There are 430 state schools – 363 Primary (including Infant and Junior), 52 Secondary, two “all through” and 11 Special, ranging in size from 10 to 1820 pupils. Many of these schools are academies and a few are free schools. Increasingly, schools of all types are part of formal federations or trusts. Some schools are also Teaching Schools, working with other partner schools to generate improvement. In addition, there are 12 Independent Schools, three Sixth Form Colleges, four Further Education Colleges and 29 training providers with deliver bases.
Being part of Norfolk education can be a springboard for your career. Those who bring their skills to Norfolk will be given opportunities to develop even further and to progress to whatever they want to be: whether that is to hone expertise in teaching through research, to support other schools in getting to where they need to be, or to progress into leadership of a school or a group of schools.
