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 partnership 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 art provision in all year groups.

At Diss we love to read and promote reading at the heart of our curriculum.  All of our children are read to every day and have the opportunity to experience a wide range of high quality literature - please see our Reading page for more information.


We are very lucky to have a large playing field equipped 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 are a part of the family of St Benet’s MAT, whose vision is to have ‘...its education system recognised as a place of aspiration, achievement and hope…’  St Benet's Website
