Our Mission

Challenge Stalham

‘Challenge Stalham’ is the philosophy which informs all teaching and learning at Stalham High.

We believe that our students are capable of great independence and resilience in life and learning. As such our philosophy is to ensure that all students are challenged sufficiently so that they may rise to the occasion and transform themselves for the better. Our staff engage with current educational research allowing us to provide challenging and inspiring lessons, characterised by high expectations and a belief that, if challenged appropriately, we can all achieve success.

As a Learning Community, we apply the concept of challenge to all areas of school life. Our staff challenge themselves to develop their practice, ensuring inspiring, effective teaching; our students challenge themselves to act upon advice and feedback, ensuring personal development and secure learning, and our membership of the North Norfolk Academy Trust ensures that we are always challenged to equip our students with the very best preparation for life.

The ‘Challenge Stalham’ philosophy can be seen in action across our curriculum, in the accuracy of written work, the confidence of verbal contributions and the rigour of practical activities, as students strive to achieve the highest quality of learning and personal development.
