Welcome to our website
We believe our school is unique and can offer our students a range of experiences second to none. We are the smallest high school in Norfolk and proud to be so. Our outstanding student/ teacher ratio is 12:1. This enables us to provide genuinely personal attention in order to develop every students potential. Our staff are committed to this approach and to improving the quality of learning for all. We have high expectations of all our students and expect a high standard of behaviour in return.
External examination results consistently show our students make good progress above national averages. Assessment of our learning support team shows it to be a model of good practice.
Alderman Peel and Visitors
Visitors often comment on the happy and purposeful atmosphere here. One ex-student, now employed as a forensic scientist, recently wrote to say the school gave me the confidence to believe I would succeed. Its that level of support and trust that helps our students thrive!
We look forward to meeting, and working in partnership, with parents who want as much for their children as we do. Read our Prospectus for more information
This balance of skills and talents helps as create a school with a true sense of community spirit, where students are encouraged to aim high, be responsible, support each other and respect the environment around them.
Alderman Peel a Specialist Sports College
The school is a specialist sports college. This designation has brought added staffing, resources and opportunities to the school. Students, staff and the community can benefit from our floodlit multi-sports area which has the best surface available. The new conference room and other facilities have transformed the learning environment in the last few years. As a Sports College, we believe in the values of competition, challenge and teamwork. These are readily demonstrated across the school with student leaders in subjects other than PE and competition extending to class and extra-curricular activities
