Education

West Norfolk is in a great position with a range of education opportunities both in Norfolk and the neighbouring counties – Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

We recognise that our young people are key to the future prosperity of the area.  Local schools are working with the wider public sector through an ‘improving attainment’ programme, developing initiatives to help pupils and teachers drive up the achievements of our younger generation and help prepare them for the next steps in their lives.

West Norfolk has a rapidly improving school system and the outcomes for children of all ages are on an upward trend.

In the last year (2014/15) there has been a 5% increase in outcomes at early years, there has been a 4% increase at the end of primary school and a 5% increase at GCSE (5 A* – C including English and Maths).

There has been a 7% increase in the proportion of schools judged good or better by Ofsted.

King’s Lynn and West Norfolk is the only district in Norfolk that has made this kind of progress at all key stages.
