A historic and vibrant co-educational school, Gresham’s was founded in 1555.
Gresham’s is set in 200 acres and enviably located between the award-winning coast and countryside of north Norfolk in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where we are inspired to bring out the best in each other.
We offer a fully rounded education to boys and girls from the age of two in our Nursery and Pre-Prep to Sixth Form students, from across the UK and overseas. At Gresham’s, pupils are prepared for rewarding personal and professional lives with the intellectual, personal and social qualities and skills needed to make a positive difference to the communities in which they live.

A scrum-half also comfortable at full-back or on the wing, Leicester Tigers academy graduate Harry Simmons is another young player to join the club from the Norfolk area.
Educated at Gresham’s School, he played his age-group rugby at Holt RFC and represented Norfolk, Eastern Counties and London & South-East but missed out on an England Under-16 cap due to injury.
He joined Tigers from school and progressed to the development squad in 2016/17 while also gaining senior experience in National One with Loughborough Students and in the Premiership ‘A’ League.
A first-team debut followed in November 2017 and at the end of the term he was chosen as Young Player of the Year by his team-mates.
From a sporting family, his dad Mark captained Holt, Norfolk and Eastern Counties while Harry’s two brothers have also represented the county.
Harry also represented Norfolk in the National Athletics Championships, winning gold in the long jump plus silver medals at 100 and 800 metres. He also played county hockey and gained selection for the Norwich City FC academy.
