About us

Norwich is one of 12 opportunity areas (OAs) in England chosen by the government to help unlock the potential of England’s children and young people. Each OA is government funded but locally led.

An independent board oversees the OA bringing together senior leaders from schools, communities, business and central and local government.

Our vision is to create a system where no child in Norwich is left behind. Working in partnership  we aim to give every young person the chance to go as far as their talents and hard work will take them.

Delivery plans for the 12 opportunity areas, and the methodology and data used to select them can be found here.
