After making an excellent start to the academic year, the Year 10 students continued to shine like a guiding star in the run up to Christmas.

We had a great Christmas assembly on the last Friday of term! I would like to thank Annalise, Sophie and Cindy for performing in front of the Year group and doing so well.

The Tutor groups who overall won the combined Christmas Challenges were DC & HJ, an excellent effort.

I attach the Christmas PowerPoint if you want to check out who won what awards!

There were 64 awards and certificates given out during the assembly.

A hugely enjoyable Year 7 End of Year assembly this morning. Around 60 thoroughly deserved awards from all departments and Tutors and some outstanding singing from four of our Year 7s, Laura, Lauren, Chloe and Anya - so impressive!

The Year 7 competition was very close and 7SN just topped the other Groups and will have their pizza lunch at the start of next term.

Star of the Week winners for this half term.

Congratulations to all of them for their hard work and achievement.

Thank you to all the parents, carers and guardians of Year 9 students who filled in the parent view questionnaire at the last parents' evening, the responses of which can be on the Parent View page.

Thank you to Ines, our language ambassador from the UEA for visiting Sprowston to speak to Year 9 students about the importance of learning a language.

The Year 10 Christmas Assembly took place on Monday morning.  A wonderful festive event of celebration and reward.  This year's programme included an impromptu performance of 'the night before Christmas' acted out in true Christmas play style by some of our Year 10 Drama students and a year group sing-a-long to the '12 days of Christmas'. 

We held a special assembly for Year 7 on Thursday 8th December where we invited a number of guests from different occupational backgrounds.  The whole idea was to inspire the pupils to challenge gender stereotypes in the workplace.

Please find information about the school trip to Lille Christmas Market.

Itineraries have been issued.
