About Us

I am really proud to be the Principal of Norwich Road Academy. Our children are wonderful, polite and keen to learn. There is a diverse and rich culture within our school all of which serves to enhance the learning experience of us all.

Our vision is to develop a 21st century learning environment that has a strong collaboration between home and the academy to achieve the very best for each child.

We believe that every child has a hidden potential to be uncovered and nurtured so that they can achieve their very best as they grow up.

Our academy has undergone changes since I joined as Principal and along with the staff, governors and the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust, we are committed to becoming an outstanding academy in Thetford.

Visitors are always welcome to come and see us in action. If you are considering sending your child to Norwich Road Academy, please do come and look and around and get a feel for what we can offer.

Mrs Thurlby
Principal
