City of Norwich School



Welcome to the City of Norwich School Association (CNSA) page. 


CNSA exists to support the school and enrich the education of the students by:

  • Raising funds and arranging events
  • Developing positive relationships between parents, staff and the wider community.

 If your child is at CNS, you are automatically a member of CNSA. 

 We organise events such as quiz and chips nights, the summer Fest and refreshments stalls at other school events.  Students are involved in suggesting how to spend the money we raise.  Recent funding projects include: more picnic benches and bins for outside areas, footballs for use at lunchtime, water bottle refill stations, an eco car kit, sixth form bike racks and T-shirts in house colours for Year 6 induction week.  We have been given lots of ideas for more fundraising, so please do support us to help raise more funds.


CNS Fest Saturday 9 July from 12 - 4pm

This will be the first Fest we’ve held since 2018 and it promises to be a great community event.   
There will be live music and performances by students, a car boot sale, driving experience for children, inflatables, food stalls including hot dog BBQ, hot drinks and cakes, a bar, craft stalls, free sports activities - and more!  

Can you help please?

We need lots of volunteers to help with staffing stalls, setting up and clearing away on the day.  Can you spare an hour or two to help please?   Email to get in touch and let us know what time you’re available, and we’ll let you know where you’re needed.  

Car boot sale pitches are available for £5 - email us if you’d like one.

Tombola - can you donate something for the tombola (toiletries, gifts, food items, drinks etc)? Students will be asked to bring in items for the tombola on a specific day so please ask your child to take your donation in on that day - or if this is a problem, email us to make other arrangements.  

CNSA Summer Raffle


We are holding a summer raffle - tickets cost £1 each for the draw which will take place at the Fest on 9 July.  Tickets are available now via Pay 360 (under Events).  Please buy tickets if you can, even if you can’t attend the Fest - if you win, we will get your prize to you afterward.  All money raised will support and enrich the education of the students.
