Welcome to Hellesdon High School

Welcome to Hellesdon High School, a popular and successful school serving the north-west fringe of Norwich. Currently we have 1,538 students on roll, including 298 in the Sixth Form.

HHS, a Leading Edge Academy since 2012, is proud to be a partner of The Wensum Trust family of schools.

At Hellesdon High, we take pride in knowing every child as an individual. Pastoral care is provided primarily by our attentive Pastoral Team, Heads of Houses and Tutors, and supported by the entire staff body, who play a part in tackling bullying. The school has a friendly atmosphere and a well-publicised anti-bullying policy.

In 2019, HHS gained School of Sanctuary accreditation, as a school that helps its students, staff and wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of our community. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.

Hellesdon High is a lively school with active links with the local community and our feeder primary schools. We have a dynamic PTA which puts on popular social and fundraising activities including quiz nights, indoor car boot sales and many more.

The school’s facilities are used by various community groups for sports and other activities outside the school day.

We offer a huge range of sporting activities to all students, including training in leadership skills, opportunities to take part in local leagues and competitions with other schools, and to enjoy extracurricular clubs and activities.

We are partners of the Community Sports Foundation, offer a range of courses to students all the way up to Sixth Form, and many of our students reach a high level in their chosen sports.
