Our Mission

Our Mission

“Excellence and Care: the College is working for its Community”


The College will give all learners the best possible opportunities to achieve and fulfil their individual potential through high quality teaching, learning and assessment and a broad range of provision, which offers choice and progression.


The College will provide a supportive environment, which responds to individual needs and encourages respect.


The College will serve our local and national community by responding and adapting to the needs of our learners and of our stakeholders.

Mission Focus

Our core values represent the guiding principles of the College.  They support the delivery of our mission and will drive the direction of the College’s leadership.  We believe that outstanding performance cannot be achieved unless we operate by the same values. 

The College Governors undertook a review of its Mission in June 2012.  Following that strategic review, the College is undertaking a process of consultation with students, staff and stakeholders on the following set of core values to underpin our work:


We promote excellence in order to provide our students with the best possible opportunities to equip them for their future. An ethos of reflective and shared good practice will underpin a culture of high aspirations, high standards and high achievement which is highly valued by our students and the communities we serve. 


We value our students, staff and governors and their talent and within a framework of support will nurture each student to develop his/her personal potential.


We embrace diversity and promote equality of opportunity within a framework of mutual respect.


We adhere to high ethical and professional standards in our work and relationships. We are committed to working hard and promoting equity and fairness.

"East Norfolk gave me the stepping stones I needed to be where I am today and it is safe to say I would not be in the position I am today without them and I am truly thankful for the help and support my tutors and the college gave me."
Louis Cook
"East Norfolk was such a wonderful college due to the dedication and commitment of the teaching staff to our learning, and their support throughout the academic year, from extra revision sessions to university applications."
Rebecca Wigmore
"ENSFC inspired me to follow my love of history and literature, with great teachers that pushed me to research and write to my full potential. I fondly remember forging great friendships, lively debates in classrooms, and supportive staff that brought out my confidence in the subjects that I now specialise in and teach myself."
Emma Butcher
Academic, author and broadcaster
"ENSFC really gave me the opportunity to study for A Levels that were closely aligned to my interests in an environment where I developed from a teenager into an adult. I really feel I came into my own between when I left high school and when I left ENSFC in a way that probably wouldn't have happened if I'd stayed at the same school "
Adam Smith
EN Alumni
"My memories of college are very positive ones! Not only did I meet some great people - both student and teachers, but it gave me the grounding to apply myself, to question and to think critically. ENSFC acted as a fantastic platform to help me understand what I wanted to do at university and beyond. "
Rebecca Mahony
Former EN Student
"East Norfolk helped massively in getting me to university. My a level subjects helped me to realise the topics I enjoyed the most, and ucas applications were dealt with simply with the help that was available for this. The learning environment at EN has also greatly helped me settle into the lecture teaching style, where self study learning is hugely encouraged."
