We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
Congratulations to all of the students from Y7 to Y10 who have successfully completed phonics programmes this year. We have seen all of the students engaging really positively and as a result students have made significant progress in reading and spelling scores. Special thanks to Mrs Richardson for running these interventions and organising the celebration party- it was a bit hot for cake but we managed it anyway!
Some of our Year 7 students had the chance this week to venture out on to the school field as part of their Geography lesson. Linked to the topic the Coasts, the students were tasked with the creation of a sand model that accurately illustrates how coastal process around the UK can lead to the creation of Caves, Arches, Stacks, Stumps. A great way to get a challenging concept across.
I wanted to say a huge well-done to Arwen Stewart in Year 7. Arwen recently took part in the European Karate Championships in Hungary. She is obviously an extremely talented martial artist as she won gold in the team kata, gold in the team kumite and silver in individual kata. What an incredible achievement!
Thank you to all the parents, carers and guardians of Year 7 students who filled in the parent view questionnaire at the last Parents' Evening, the responses from which can be on the Parent View page.
We have been running a competition in Year 7 to create a form poster in each Tutor group that tells us something about each student.
I have been looking at some of them this morning and I'm really impressed with the detail and effort which has gone into them. I particularly like 7SN's poster where each student has been represented by a Disney character whose name begins with the same initial. Brilliant!
I am a strong advocate for the provision of student leadership opportunities and I am pleased that we are once again able to honour some of our current Year 10 students with the privilege of becoming School Prefect. Charged with leading the students, supporting the staff and working to ensure a strong future for all; the Prefect role is a demanding yet fulfilling opportunity. The role of Prefect provides a great opportunity to gain experience and develop the skills required to undertake future leadership roles.
Over the next few weeks, the Year 10 students will be given the opportunity to apply to become a Prefect. There are just 32 spaces available and these places will be strongly fought for. Once the applications are in, the Prefects will be selected though a combination of both staff and student votes.
I look forward to reading the applications and wish all of the students the very best of luck.
These are the dates for the internal exams summer 2017. Seating plans (where appropriate) will be displayed on the CM block’s ‘Exam Noticeboard’. Students should arrive to their exams on time/5 minutes early and line up along the main corridor, with the appropriate equipment in a clear pencil case. These exams will take place in the main sports hall, unless stated differently on seating plans. All exams will be completed under the JCQ exam regulations.
Here at Sprowston Community High School we have so much to offer and celebrate within the school. We post a number of articles on the school website but there is a wealth of information to be found in our numerous twitter feeds. Below we have listed the individual accounts and link to them.
