A superb start to the 2017-18 academic year for these students who have been nominated as Star of the Week since September.
These nominations have come a range of school staff who wanted to recognise the commitment, excellent attitude or progress made in and out of lessons by these students. Well done to all.
Also a special well done to J Dickson who was the star of thew week, randomly selected for this half terms voucher. Spend it wisely!
I met with Georgia W, Ellie C and Harrison M this morning to give them Awards certificates and Amazon vouchers as a thank you for their fantastic speeches on the YR6 Open Evening.
They performed so well and gave such a great account of their start at Sprowston. What a talented trio they are!
Over the coming months, Year 11 students will be introduced to and given time to explore the Help You Choose Website.
This Norfolk Based site allows students to search and apply for post 16 choices across Norfolk. With information on Sixth Form, college courses, apprenticeships and on the job training the site holds invaluable information and provides a one-stop-shop for all of the students' post 16 needs.
Please will all parents to take a look at the site too and start discussions with your son or daughter about what their future directions might be.
Visiting Spanish students offer one-to-one help to Year 10 students of Spanish with their GCSE role plays.
A group of 25 Spanish students spent three weeks at Sprowston during September and October. They were looked after by our students to get a taste of what life is like in a British secondary school. They attended as many lessons as possible and got to grips with expectations such as school uniform and queuing!
Well done to the following students who all completed their Peer Mentor training on Monday 25, Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 September:

It was good to meet with two Year 7 super-stars this morning: Asim Miah and Evie Dickerson have both gained over 10 achievement points already this term - a fantastic effort, well done!
7LE are racing ahead with a whopping 119 achievement points so far - can any other form catch them....?
Year 8 have been tasked with an extended inter-form challenge this term. They will work with the pupils in their form on a variety of different mini competitions to see which one can emerge victorious at the end.
These challenges will provide a balance of academic achievement, charitable work, community spirit and puzzle tests to see which form can come out on top.
So far, they have competed in 3 challenges and have really immersed themselves in all aspects of the competition.
I met with the Year 7 students who have already been awarded six achievement points or more this term.
This is an outstanding effort and shows what a great start these students have made to their time at our school. Well done!
