Welcome to Litcham School


We are a well-respected all-through school for children aged 4-16, serving a large rural community.

We want every pupil to achieve the highest possible academic outcomes and to achieve their full potential. This is our number one priority and we know that this will only happen by providing the highest standards of teaching every day. We also provide a wide range of opportunities and we value pupils’ achievements across a variety of areas. Litcham School is the good school that it is because of  what everyone brings to it, including parents, staff, governors and of course our pupils.

We are a small school with some 640 pupils on roll and we are consistently a very popular choice with parents. Our size enables us to get to know our young people very well and to focus on their individual needs. The phrase ‘every child known’ is often used by schools to highlight their commitment to pastoral care. At Litcham this is genuinely the case. Some pupils join us directly in the reception class, whilst others join us in Year 7 from within the catchment area of the Litcham Learning Community including Beeston, Brisley, Great Massingham, Weasenham, Beetley St Mary’s, Great Dunham and Harpley. Every year we also welcome new pupils and students from further afield.

Our aim is to see all our young people acquire the skills and knowledge, the maturity and confidence they need to enable them to become successful members of the community. Opportunities to engage in sport, music, drama and many other extra-curricular activities help them develop the team and communication skills, the leadership qualities and the breadth of experience they need to make the transition into adult life.

Our pupils are proud of their school and very loyal. Visitors frequently comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school. The teachers and support staff are extraordinarily hard-working and committed to bringing out the best in our young people. Together, they are the vital ingredients of what makes this such a happy and successful school.

With very best wishes.
