The Free School Norwich is a primary school for children aged 4 - 11 years old. It is housed in Kings House, a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse located in central Norwich, close to all public transport services.
The school is fully modernised and adapted for use as a primary school, whilst retaining many of its original Georgian features. A purpose-designed, children's play garden is situated at the rear of Kings House. The garden has a wooded area, trim trail, play house, children's vegetable garden, pond and a specialist early years playground with two canopied areas for outdoor activities in all weathers.
The Free School Norwich year comprises of six terms, with a two week holiday between each and a four week holiday in August. Our terms are named Harvest, Christmas, Winter, Spring, Whitsun and Summer.
Squirrels Extended School is open for use by working parents for five days a week during term time and throughout the school holiday periods. The school is closed on Bank Holidays, for one week at Christmas and for two weeks in August.
The Free School Norwich actively promotes the use of public transport to help reduce city centre traffic congestion. Our convenient location enables parents to use public transport to travel easily to the school and their place of work in Norwich. The school also provides a free Pedal and Park service for families who wish to cycle to school and work.
