Welcome from the principal

Welcome to Thetford Academy. We have a clear aim for our pupils: that they are happy, safe and successful. This aim directly influences every action we take as a school. We have the highest expectations of our pupils and are committed to maintaining a calm, structured, and supportive learning environment that enables them to prosper.

Thetford Academy offers a rigorous academic education from year seven right through to sixth form because we believe that our pupils should have access to the best that has been thought, said, and created.

We ensure our pupils take part in a range of enriching experiences, from participation in sports clubs and teams to a multitude of trips and visits, at home and abroad. Pupils have  opportunities to take part in a variety of vibrant arts, music, and drama activities too.

Our custom-built campus has enviable facilities: classrooms and labs designed for modern teaching, and extensive grounds for a full range of sports. Our teachers are passionate advocates for their students, and can draw on the world-recognised expertise of the Inspiration Trust’s education team.

As part of the Trust - twice ranked the top comprehensive schools group in the country for pupil progress to GCSE - we can draw on the resources and expertise from across our East Anglian family of schools to support our students and staff. 

The academy has a proud culture of learning, aspiration, and community. It's a great place to be, and I invite you to come and see for yourself exactly what makes Thetford Academy such a special place, and the right place for your child to learn for their future.
