I am extremely proud to be the seventh Head of Wymondham College; a truly unique, World Class state school for day and boarding students aged 11-18. With ‘outstanding’ judgements from Ofsted for both education and boarding we are one of the few UK state schools to hold the ‘World Class’ accolade and be an associate member of the HMC. In November 2021 we were named as ‘Secondary School of the Year’ in the Pearson National Teaching Awards for making a difference for our students. We are amongst the highest performing schools in the country and our students’ academic success is underpinned by a strong belief in providing opportunities outside of the classroom aimed at opening young minds; we call this ‘Wymondham Life’ (extra-curricular). Our ‘Floreat Programme’ and Wymondham College Diploma focus on character and leadership development which is supported by a range of internationally distinguished speakers.
Developing others to be proud, passionate and positive is the most exciting and rewarding aspect of my job; seeing students enjoying learning, excelling on the sports field or immersing themselves in extra-curricular pursuits gives me a huge sense of pride. We are committed to giving our very best at all times, celebrate diversity, we embrace change and welcome challenge. Tradition and high standards are an intrinsic part of the College but we are a forward looking organisation, often at the cutting edge of educational development. I am driven by always doing what is right for the young people in my care and would be delighted to show you around our wonderful 83 acre campus.
Mr Dan Browning, Headteacher
