Welcome to our new Diss Church of England Junior Academy Website.  We hope you find all the information you require, if not please do not hesitate to contact us.


We are a Church of England Junior Academy which serves our community in the market town of Diss.  Our children are 7 - 11 years old (years 3 to 6).  However, we have a very close working relationship with Diss Infant Academy and Nursery, less than 5 minutes walk away.

We currently have 8 classes with an average class size of 26.  We have a strong caring focus with a dedicated pastoral staff team.  We offer a broad and balanced thematic curriculum, including specialist music and art tuition in all year groups

We are very lucky to have a large playing field kwix cricketequipped with trim trail, 2 football pitches and a cricket square, which the children enjoy during both playtimes and PE lessons.  We aim to teach at least 1½ hours of PE a week, to ensure all our children have the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles.

We have recently become part of the newly formed  family of St Benet’s MAT, whose vision is to have ‘...its education system recognised as a place of aspiration, achievement and hope…’
