City of Norwich School

Main School Open Evening 

At City of Norwich School, An Ormiston Academy, we know that choosing the right school for your child is a challenging experience.  Our school motto of 'Excellence in all" reflects our vision of achieving the very highest standards in everything we do, alongside a strong ethos of community and care. 

The broad, balanced and enriching curriculum aims to enable every child to maximise their potential and grow in academic and creative depth as well as confidence and happiness, equipping them with the necessary skills to assuredly take their next steps towards a deeply rewarding life. 

Students at CNS are able to benefit from a number of unique opportunities, such as the school’s partnership with the London Guildhall School for Music and Drama and the Norfolk Music Hub. We also offer a comprehensive range of co-curricular activities to run alongside the school curriculum including the Youth STEMM Award programme and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, offering Bronze, Silver and Gold.

We warmly invite you to come and see the school for yourself and meet our staff who take immense pride in their school and the students they teach, support and care for. 

This year's main school Open Evening will be held on Thursday 30th September from 5.30pm to 8pm, with the Headteacher's address at 6pm, 6.30pm and 7pm. 

To support social distancing, we are restricting the number that can attend each Headteacher's address to a maximum of 250 people and these places need to be booked via Eventbrite:

Please bring your ticket with you to ensure entry and arrive five minutes before the start of the address.

For tours around the school on the night, guides will be available in front of the Arc.
