Space to thrive...
Gresham’s is a historic and vibrant co-educational school, founded in 1555. Our school is set in 200 acres and enviably located between the award-winning coast and countryside of north Norfolk in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where we are inspired to bring out the best in each other.
We offer a fully rounded education to boys and girls from the age of two in our Nursery and Pre-Prep to Sixth Form students, from across the UK and overseas. In 2016, Gresham’s was awarded an ‘Excellent’ rating across all nine categories in all three schools following an Independent Schools Inspectorate visit, which is testament to our progressive academic curriculum, high-quality teaching and excellent pastoral care. At Gresham’s, pupils are prepared for rewarding personal and professional lives with the intellectual, personal and social qualities and skills needed to make a positive difference to the communities in which they live. We are immensely proud of their enthusiasm, commitment and generosity towards each other.
A progressive academic curriculum
Our progressive academic curriculum, high quality teaching and excellent facilities support every pupil’s learning journey throughout the school. Classroom learning is complemented by a variety of academic societies and clubs as well as our ever-popular field trips that engender a wider, outward focus. Our Sixth Formers can opt to study A-levels or the widely respected International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB). Gresham’s is the only school in Norfolk to offer the IB, has swiftly gained an international reputation as an IB centre of excellence, with pupils progressing to some of the world’s most prestigious academic institutions. Outside the classroom, pupils enjoy seemingly unlimited opportunities to participate in an exciting range of co-curricular sports, arts and music activities along with adventurous expeditions and community-based service. Whilst we can boast first class academic achievements, the academic success and personal development of all pupils at all levels gives us the greatest sense of fulfilment and reward.
A Gresham’s education enables our pupils to develop in a huge variety of areas and we have a tradition of producing outstanding achievers in all walks of life, including architects, diplomats, engineers, musicians, and sports men and women and many more. Old Greshamians have been inspiring others for generations from composer Sir Benjamin Britten and poet W.H. Auden to the founder of the Dyson Company, Sir James Dyson. More recently, Old Greshamians making their mark and creating headlines include international rugby players Tom and Ben Youngs and BAFTA and Golden Globe award winning actor Olivia Colman.

Beautiful north Norfolk
For those unfamiliar with our location in an Area of Outstanding Nature Beauty in north Norfolk, the best advice we can offer is to come and see it for yourselves. We are fortunate to benefit from spacious grounds in the Georgian market town of Holt and are situated just four miles from an award-winning coastline.
North Norfolk enjoys a diverse landscape from its stunning beaches, picturesque countryside and beautiful market towns and villages; it is a beautiful place to live and learn.
“Hard to think who would not thrive in this happy, well-run school.”
