By offering outstanding facilities surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, excellent teaching and a wide range of activities a Gresham’s education gives your child all the time and space they need to thrive.

“Relationships between teachers and pupils are exceptionally strong.”

INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS INSPECTORATE REPORT

An ‘Excellent’ School

Gresham’s was awarded an ‘Excellent’ rating across all nine categories in all three schools following an Independent Schools Inspectorate visit.

Small class sizes

Children are taught in small class sizes, which are specifically tailored to their year group. Without mixing ages, we can ensure all teaching is individualised and focused on the appropriate curriculum. Each class is kept small, but year groups are larger which supports peer learning and social interaction opportunities, crucial for early year’s development. As well as developing Maths and reading skills, children are exposed to a range of languages which include Mandarin and Italian.

Discovering passions and talent

We provide specialist teaching to give every child the opportunity to try a variety of activities and find other areas of achievement aside from purely academic. Our offer includes drama and dance for the budding Olivia Colman, sport for the future Tom or Ben Youngs and music for the next Benjamin Britten (just a few of our outstanding former pupils!). The children have their day filled with stimulating activities and are able to take advantage of all the outstanding facilities of our Prep and Senior Schools.

Outdoor learning

With the breathtaking North Norfolk coast just a stone’s throw away, and surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our Pre-Prep school is perfectly situated to offer excellent outdoor learning activities, whatever the weather. We find the great outdoors offers a stimulating environment where imaginations can run free and creativity can be enhanced.

Wrap around care as standard

We know that the traditional school day doesn’t always fit in with a parent’s busy life. Therefore, at no additional cost, we provide wrap around care for children from 8:00am until 5:30pm (5:00pm on a Wednesday). Of course, we ensure this time is fun and enjoyable for children with range of games and activities in a relaxed and happy atmosphere. In the morning we serve breakfast to prepare children for the busy day ahead, and in the evening we provide tea.
