Our students vary widely in ability. Some are gifted, and come because they aren’t being stretched in school. Others come because they are struggling. Most are average children who “could do better”. Each individual has his/her own programme, and can move along slowly or quickly as appropriate.

Gray’s Of Norwich
Gray’s of Norwich Ltd are Property Developers and Investors evolving from a background which is both comprehensive and enduring. In 1974 Les Gray (Controlling Director) completed a City and Guilds apprenticeship with local builders R.G. Carter (Drayton). He then went into partnership with his brother to continue the family business started by his father 30 years before. He established Gray’s Fitted Furniture in the centre of Drayton, supplying fitted kitchens and bedrooms throughout East Anglia, relying predominantly on recommendations from satisfied customers. Yvonne Howes started working for Les in 1983 and is still involved with the business today. The furniture company is no longer owned by Les but still enjoys a good reputation locally.
In the early 1980’s Les was instrumental in developing purpose built care homes for the elderly. Firstly Eastlands, a 35-bed care home in Taverham was established, shortly followed by St. Mary’s, a 44 bed care home off the North Walsham Road at Crostwick. Both of which enjoyed an excellent reputation throughout the area and beyond, with Les and his wife Margaret being actively involved with the running of the homes and bringing a very personal touch to the elderly residents.
A further care home was developed at Newton Flotman in 1998, following the sale of the first two homes, as the plan was to concentrate on property development. Olive House was another success story and keeping with the family theme Les’ brother Richard and his wife Liz ran the home (later owning it) and once again this care home gained an excellent reputation.
Gray’s of Norwich Ltd went on to develop residential and commercial properties throughout Norfolk, at such places as North Walsham, Reedham, Drayton and Cawston and also being involved in large projects at Northrepps, Watton and Erpingham.
Following this we went on to concentrate on investment properties, mainly office and industrial units to let at Taverham, Cawston and Reydon (near Southwold). With Les and Yvonne being closely involved with the management of the properties and developing a good rapport with the tenants, we were able to maintain good levels of occupancy, even throughout the recession.
As Les and Margaret are looking to spend more time with their growing family, especially the young grandchildren, they made the decision to sell their investment properties at Cawston, Taverham and Reydon and concentrate more on “hands off” investment opportunities, including peer to peer lending. Yvonne continues to deal with the day to day running of the office and it is lovely to come back to Drayton, where it all started and where Les and Margaret still live. Drayton Old Lodge provides the ideal base for the company’s latest needs and we are looking forward to meeting the other tenants and being part of the Old Lodge community whilst taking the company in it’s new direction.

Quartz works with establishments and charities to supply specialist staff either on a permanent or temporary bases, at all grades. From Support workers to psychologists, home managers to companions.
The directors of Quartz also saw a growing demand in the setting up and running of individual services for people with learning difficulties and mental health issues. With the implementation of personal budgets, and a desire from Government for people to have more control and choice in their care requirements, the abilities are there for individuals and/or their families to create a real person-centred service. However as this is still in its early days, it can be a major problem to get good independent advice. This is where Quartz can help. Whether it’s to look at housing, staff, care planning, budgeting or to set up a full independent service, either run by the family or Quartz – we can help. We are not funded by local government or social services, so can give you the best possible advice.
