Headteacher - Mrs Claire Elliott

Old Buckenham High School is located in the beautiful and historic village of Old Buckenham in Norfolk. Our school benefits from being within a stunning, rural setting; with a drive and focus on ensuring our students are provided with every opportunity to become successful members of society.

We pride ourselves on the experiences we offer beyond the classroom, including a wide range of lunchtime and after school clubs and events, where academic performance and personal development go hand in hand.

Our academic and personal development curriculum is designed to equip our students with the skills and ‘habits’ necessary to become confident, resilient and ambitious learners and leaders.

We are a strong community school in which mutual respect, tolerance and cooperation is at the heart of our values. The relationship between staff and students is a key strength and we will support, nurture and encourage our students throughout their learning journey with us.

At our school, the individual is recognised and all students, no matter what their prior learning or their perceived ability or circumstances, are expected to achieve, be part of a can-do culture and ultimately of course be successful and achieve their full potential.

As part of the Sapientia Education Trust, our aim is to ensure our students are provided with a world-class education locally; ensuring our students receive high quality teaching and are equipped with the skills needed to flourish.

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of Old Buckenham High School.
