Smithdon High School - Wnat

A secondary academy of West Norfolk Academies Trust

At Smithdon High School we share a simple vision. Every child is supported to make progress in every single lesson, every single day.

These are exciting times to join our school. We are the newest member of a dynamic academy trust and under a new Headteacher we are building on our Good Ofsted judgement to become a truly great school. As a result, our staff receive fantastic professional development opportunities.

Our school serves the coastal town of Hunstanton and the surrounding area with a clear focus on knowing the strengths and needs of every student. We believe every child deserves a warm welcome to every learning opportunity and a personalised learning experience; challenge and support leading to exceptional progress.

Although we boast a wide range of modern resources and facilities, our main building was the birth place of the Brutalist style of architecture in Britain and enjoys the protection of being Grade 2 listed. The building not only influences modern architecture but has also shaped our shared values of strength, integrity and excellence.

At Smithdon High School we welcome applicants who want to make a positive difference to the lives of our students.

Smithdon High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This includes obtaining references and ensures compliance with the DBS process.
