Welcome to Springwood High School


With more than a hundred years of history, Springwood provides an education for boys and girls aged between eleven and eighteen in King's Lynn.

Springwood High School is a comprehensive school with Specialist Performing Arts Status and a long history of providing an excellent education to pupils in West Norfolk.

Springwood High school is dedicated to ensuring that every student gains the best qualifications possible. We believe that excellent academic qualifications provide each student with the best life chances and opportunities to ensure a successful and fulfilled future. In the last two years the percentage of students gaining 5 higher grades including English and Maths has risen significantly.

We have a high expectation of both our teachers and our students. We set challenging targets for all and support each other to achieve them. We work hard to monitor accurately the progress of students, celebrate academic success and intervene where necessary.

A positive attitude to learning is an essential aspect of academic success. Our teachers regularly assess how engaged each learner is in their studies using an “attitude to learning- score. We celebrate students who have a good attitude to their studies and actively encourage those who need to improve in this area.

We offer a wide range of opportunities, both within and beyond the classroom - it is vital that every student participates in other areas of school life. Springwood expects every student to take part in other aspects of our offer to them including;

  • Competitive Sport
