Student Introduction

Welcome to City of Norwich School, An Ormiston Academy, or CNS as its fondly known.

Each one of you will belong to a House team with a House Leader and a Pastoral Manager. There are five Houses:

  • Blakeney
  • Holkham
  • Kelling
  • Thornham
  • Winterton

Registration is from 8.35am. If you have any questions in the first instance, please go to student services where they will be happy to help. If you are late or you need to sign in or out for a particular reason, please also go to student services.

If you are feeling unwell, we have a School Nurse on site. 

Lessons are timetabled over two weeks, so students have a Week 1 and a Week 2 timetable. Notices in school tell students which week it is.

As a member of CNS, you can take part in a wide variety of enrichment opportunities. Please look through the enrichment pages for more information. 

If you are musical, you may be interested in joining the Norfolk Centre for Young Musicians which runs every Saturday at CNS in term-time. CNS students are entitled to a discount.
