Attleborough Academy Norfolk (AAN) (formerly Attleborough High School) is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in Attleborough in the English county of Norfolk.

Previously a community school administered by Norfolk County Council, Attleborough High School became a specialist Mathematics and Computing College in 2008. As part of this, the school became a Microsoft®Academy in 2010.[1] In May 2013 the school launched a consultation on the possibility of converting to academy status.[2] Attleborough High School formally became an academy on 1 January 2014, and was renamed Attleborough Academy. The school is now sponsored by the TEN Group.

Attleborough Academy offers GCSEs, NVQs and BTEC First Certificates as programmes of study for pupils. The sixth form centre offers A Levels and advanced BTECs, some of which are offered in partnership with Wymondham College.[3]
