Diss High School confirms it has joined the Enrich Learning Trust

The headteacher of Diss High School has spoken about improving the learning experience for pupils after announcing the school had decided to join a trust.

The Walcot Road site has become part of the Enrich Learning Trust, which includes the likes of Kenninghall and Spooner Row primary schools and Long Stratton High School.

Headteacher Sam Stopps said that, as part of the trust, the high school will continue to maintain its unique identity, values and community connections, while benefiting from the support and expertise of the larger trust.

He said: “We have been working with Enrich in an unofficial capacity over the last few months and have found their support to be an invaluable part of our school-improvement journey.

“Diss High is quite a geographically isolated high school, so to have the chance to network with other schools across the county, many of whom are facing very similar challenges to us, is a real opportunity in terms of improving the learning experience of Diss students.”

Mr Stopps said conversations with the trust had been ongoing since the 2022, adding that it was important to take the time to do the groundwork in order to find a trust whose values closely matched their own.

The headteacher said he felt joining the trust would provide additional opportunities for students, teachers and staff to thrive in an environment that encourages continuous improvement and collaboration.

He added: “By joining Enrich, Diss High has a great opportunity to learn from good practice elsewhere across the trust, as well as sharing our own ideas and achievements with our new partner schools.

“Ultimately, the aim is to improve the educational outcomes and life chances for all our students at Diss High – a priority that the school shares completely with Enrich.”
