Wensum English Hub


Wensum English Hub

We are one of 34 English Hubs nationwide, funded by the Department for Education to support schools in achieving excellence in teaching reading and early language development. We will be providing funding and free support to schools in Norfolk.

Wensum English Hub is based at Heather Avenue Infant School in partnership with Arden Grove Infant and Nursery School, both outstanding schools in Hellesdon. We are passionate about reading and teaching all children to read fluently and for enjoyment. We have considerable expertise in providing high-quality CPD, funding and bespoke support to drive school improvement.


Attend a half-day Showcase to find out how your school can benefit from the English Hub. You will be able to observe phonics lessons, find out how we have developed a reading for pleasure culture and apply for funding and free bespoke support.

Bespoke School Support
