Old Buckenham High School is a small/medium-sized high school set in the heart of the beautiful Norfolk countryside. We currently have around 600 students aged between 11 and 16 years, boys and girls. In each of our years we have five tutor groups with an average of 24 students in each.
Students are assigned a ‘house’ when they start; Borrow, Coke, Crome, Fry, Townshend. Students in each house compete in various interhouse competitions, including music and sports, and students are mentored by older students in their own house or paired with a literacy assistant to support their reading or numeracy assistant for maths.
Our leadership group consists of a headteacher, deputy headteacher and assistant headteacher. The school/students are supported by a director of teaching and learning and two directors of raising achievement. We also have five year group leaders who oversee all students in their year group, from years 7 to 11.
We have curriculum leaders and subject teachers in each subject area; English, Maths, Science, Design & Technology, Expressive Arts, Geography, History, Computing, Modern Foreign Languages, Physical Education, Personal Development.
