Arts and culture

We have a strong academic focus at Hethersett Academy – which in our view has to include rich access to arts and culture.

We encourage our pupils to explore and express themselves through art and creativity, building a wide range of communication and thinking skills along the way. 

We believe in the power of music to enhance lives, both through the sheer pleasure of listening to and enjoying music, ands the discipline and teamwork of individual and group playing and singing. Our string ensemble, jazz band, and rock school are just a few examples of the opportunities on offer.

Our practice rooms support individual and group playing, and we have a suite of computers offering digital composition tools.

We ensure students have regular opportunities to perform, both in school and to the public through school productions and our annual showcase at Norwich Playhouse.

Our students take part in events with our sister Inspiration Trust schools, such as our annual Christmas concert at Norwich Cathedral.
