Gresham’s School was founded in 1555 by Sir John Gresham. The school is located in the city of Holt, one of the most environmentally friendly and beautiful places in the county of Norfolk, near the sea coast, in a picturesque hilly area with stunning natural beauty. The nearest Norwich International Airport can be reached in 30 minutes, to London in 2.5 hours.

Norfolk has a diverse landscape, ranging from its stunning beaches, picturesque countryside and beautiful market towns and villages; It is a great place to live and learn. Each corner of Norfolk has its own character and charm, and its natural surroundings are a haven for a wide variety of wildlife.

The UK's Best School Guide ‘’The Good School Guide’’ writes about Gresham’s School:

“A well-established rural school. He has a well-deserved reputation for his studies in music and theatre. The relatively small size and good location make the school a good choice for those seeking a wider educational experience. The ability to study in high school two programs - IB and A-level - are a strong advantage. It’s hard to imagine who wouldn’t succeed in this happy, well-run school.”

About 500 students’ study at the school.
