Description

“Gresham’s is a little slice of heaven”
Tatler Schools Guide 2022

“Leavers emerge ‘well-rounded, well-mannered and resilient’ ”
Tatler Schools Guide 2022

“Hard to think who would not thrive in this happy, well-run school.”
The Good Schools Guide

Founded in 1555, Gresham’s is an authentic boarding and day school providing a fully rounded education to boys and girls aged 2 to 18. The school is set on a 200 acre site, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just four miles from the breathtaking North Norfolk coast. 

At every level, we provide a curriculum which is versatile and enriching. In the Sixth Form, pupils can choose to study the IB Diploma Programme, a portfolio of three A level subjects, or replace one or two A levels with BTEC National Diplomas.

With a broad range of extra-curricular, sporting and cultural opportunities on offer, Gresham’s encourages independent thought, tenacity and creativity to enable pupils to explore their own interests and futures. A wealth of activities, trips and expeditions play a central role in enriching our pupils’ lives. The Combined Cadet Force and Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme offer opportunities for pupils to develop leadership and team building skills whilst our Community, Action and Service programme sees pupils taking an active lead in charitable and fundraising events. 

The Dyson Building opened at Gresham’s in September 2021. Sir James Dyson, a former pupil at the school, enabled the innovative new centre for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education. The building of a dedicated centre for STEAM subjects disrupts the established narrative that young people must choose between science and the arts at an early stage of their life. Sir James Dyson said “By creating state-of-the-art spaces I hope that we can foster, inspire and educate more brilliant young minds. I am so pleased that Gresham’s will be leading the charge.”

The school has a tradition of producing outstanding achievers in all walks of life, including architects, diplomats, engineers, musicians and many more. Old Greshamians have been inspiring others for generations, from composer Sir Benjamin Britten to poet W.H. Auden. More recently, Old Greshamians making their mark include international rugby players Tom and Ben Youngs and Academy Award winning actor Olivia Colman.
