About Gresham's School

Gresham’s Senior School is a co-educational school for both day and boarding pupils aged 13 to 18. Set in nearly 200 acres of countryside, the school is just four miles from the north Norfolk coast. Inside the classroom and out, we believe in giving pupils the time and space they need to become confident, well-rounded individuals. Academically, we offer a very wide range of subjects, ensuring that all interests and talents are well catered for. In the Sixth Form the International Baccalaureate Diploma is offered alongside A-levels. Students can also enjoy a wide range of non-academic activities, including drama, music and community activities, as well as outside visits and expeditions. We are particularly well-known for our extensive facilities and sporting achievements. This unique combination of choice and excellence ensures that we have a strong tradition of producing achievers in all walks of life. Why not come and see for yourself the difference a Gresham’s education makes? We welcome individual visits and also host Open Mornings in the Autumn and Spring terms. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Students applying for Year 9 are invited to come in during the Lent (Spring) Term for an assessment day when they are in Year 8. Written reports from the pupil’s current school and a reference are also used in the assessment process. Entrance assessments are taken in Maths and English. 

Entry to Sixth Form

Entry to the Sixth Form (Year 12) is dependent upon the candidate's school reports, interview, predicted GCSE grades and a reference from the candidate's current school.

Final acceptance depends on students gaining a minimum of six GCSE grades A*- B, as well as a minimum of a C grade in Mathematics and English. Usually a minimum of a GCSE B grade is expected in a subject to be pursued in the Sixth Form. Further information is available via our Admissions Team at or at 01263 714614
