A Norwich secondary school is celebrating after being recognised with two national ‘exceptional education’ awards.

City of Norwich School was rewarded for its curriculum design and professional learning with two awards from the national education organisation SSAT’s Framework for Exceptional Education.

When assessing the school, the moderator found the school, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust, was “making a difference to the lives of the children in their own school and in others across the city of Norwich and the Ormiston family.”

The school was also praised for how much it works with parents and its staff’s strong ethos of collaboration.
