Headteacher's Message, Friday 5th November 2021

We welcomed over 500 families to CNS last night for our Sixth Form Open Evening. It was a wonderful evening with students and staff enjoying the opportunity to share and celebrate their work. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I am grateful to everyone who supported and attended the event. Ms Nichols spoke of time, space and breadth in her speech which was complemented by the superb speeches from our head students who spoke of the impact being at CNS Sixth Form has had on them personally. For further information please go to City of Norwich School - Sixth Form Open Evening 2021 ( 

As informed by letter this week we are reintroducing face coverings in communal and social areas from Monday. If members of the school community are moving, face coverings need to be worn, if people are sitting, they can be removed. This will apply to visitors to the school as well and thank you for your cooperation with this and helping all members of the school community feel safe.  

I had a relaxing half term break and hope you did too. Have a lovely weekend and good luck to all Year 11 families with revision for mocks which are being held on Tuesday next week.
