Iā€™d like to welcome you to our website, which gives you an insight into our fantastic academy! As principal, I work with my committed team to provide every child an enriching curriculum and a vast range of extra-curricular activities to extend the opportunities of all of our students.


Our vision for Iceni Academy-Hockwold is to create a love of learning in a happy and secure environment, which inspires everyone to achieve their full potential and realise their passion for learning in whatever way suits their personal strengths and qualities.

We are developing a creative, dynamic environment that seeks to nurture our pupils, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.

We strive for a first class learning experience for all, ensuring continuity between the primary, secondary and further education stages of learning.


  • To recognise the value and abilities of every member of our school community.
  • To promote The British Values and attitudes of care, tolerance, trust and respect within the school and wider communities.
  • To nurture and support, helping every child to achieve his/her potential in all areas of learning ā€“ intellectual, emotional, physical, social, moral, spiritual and cultural.
  • To ensure excellence in teaching and learning within a high quality learning environment, through leadership and within all aspects of school life.
  • To equip children with the resilience and perseverance to become creative and independent thinkers and to become learners for life within an ever-changing world.
  • To provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all.
  • To develop learning activities which stimulate positive models of enquiry, reflection, challenge and innovation.
  • To teach children the role of leadership of the world in which we live.
We work very closely with parents and strongly believe in the collaboration between home and Academy to share the learning and celebrate the achievements of everyone. Every child has the ability to excel and we help them to do this.
We welcome visitors to our academy, so please ring and make an appointment to come and see us.


To all our wonderful, talented, funny and kind Year 6s - from tiny Acorns you grew into mighty Oaks. Wishing you all the best with your next adventures, don't be strangers and thank you for all your lovely gifts from all the staff at Iceni Academy, Hockwold.

This afternoon was the annual whole school football festival. EYFS and KS1 took part in a skills carousel led by Year 5 and 6 leaders. KS2 also played a round robin of matches to find the winning college: Churchill was 1st, Trinity was 2nd, Queens and Emmanuel came joint third.

Eco Bug Club winners!
Well done and thank you to everyone who entered. It was a really hard job for Eco Club to judge them. Eco will be making a display with all the bugs in school.
