Considering a role at Cobholm Primary Academy? We thought we'd provide some insight into what living and working in Great Yarmouth is like.

Known as a traditional British seaside town, we are proud to say that Great Yarmouth has lots to offer and great-value property. It is renowned for its sandy beaches and stunning seafront lovingly nicknamed the ‘Golden Mile’, as well as having a lovely town centre and boasting one of the oldest and largest marketplaces in England.

Read more about what it is like to work and live in Great Yarmouth in our online blog:



Our academy is proud to be at the heart of the Cobholm community, and we can trace our roots back for more than 100 years.

We encourage a strong partnership between parents and our school. Parents, grandparents and other family members play an important role in fundraising and shaping academy activities, with regular events that help us share our passion for learning with the whole community. We thank you all.

At Cobholm Primary Academy, we encourage our pupils to explore and express themselves through art and creativity, building a wide range of communication and thinking skills along the way. We do this by...

🌳 Providing an outdoor teaching area to help pupils gain new experiences

📚 Having an extensive library and story telling areas to help our children learn and think in new and exciting ways

🎵 Believing in the power of music to enhance lives and giving pupils the opportunity to learn and participate in events

Have you heard about the Cobholm Primary Passport? 🚍

Launched in response to post-pandemic life, this initiative aims to provide our pupils with opportunities outside of the classroom, giving them the chance to experience a wide range of activities in our local area and beyond.

Since launching our passport we have already held more trips than ever for all year groups, ranging from a visit to Hundred River Farm through to a Norwich Day Trip followed by sleepover at the school.

Take a look at our latest news, events and trips on our website:
