Iceni Today

Today the students at Iceni Academy are more successful then ever before in our history.  As the exams have got tougher with the new specifications our students have adapted and remained committed to excellence.

The achievement of our students is now amongst the best in Norfolk and they are truly young men and women to be proud of.

Our success goes far beyond exam results.  We want our students to leave us not only academically prepared for the next stage of their lives but also emotionally equipped for the challenges ahead.

We want our students to be ready to play a key role in our community.

We serve a wide catchment and in the past this area has led to some challenges.  Because of recent developments, such as the dualling of the A11,  our geography is now in our favour and we are well placed to capitalise on our proximity to Cambridge (for the Science developments) and Norwich (for the Technology and Food research opportunities).

Our focus for 2020/2021 is on ensuring our exam results continue to improve but also on making sure that every student gets to take every cultural and character opportunity given so they too can make a positive contribution to Iceni Academy and our community.

A Brief History

Please noteThis information is not yet complete

The school was first formed as Hockwold and Methwold Community School in September 2011 from the merger of Hockwold Primary School and Methwold High School.

The school became an Academy in 2013 and was renamed Iceni Academy.  It continues to operate on two sites (Secondary in Methwold and Primary in Hockwold).

The current building was opened in 1957 with an official opening in 1958.  It has evolved since then but at it’s core still has the same solid roots.

Over the next few months this page will include more information and photographs about Iceni Academy.
