Welcome from the principal

Welcome to Thetford Academy – a friendly, passionate place full of learning, where our priority is ensuing that every student has the widest range of opportunities, and the support to make the most of them.

From joining us from primary school all the way through to sixth form, we offer a strong academic education backed by the sporting and cultural experiences that help our young people develop. Our award-winning careers service ensures they can make confident next steps too.

We extend open arms to our many local communities, and have fantastic links with local businesses, arts, music, and sports groups. Our academy is a place for the whole town to come and grow.

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.
