The hare has finally arrived at Sprowston Community Academy and the team of twelve Year 9s have been busy designing and producing creative writing about our hare.

From all the ideas created we have had the difficult task of choosing the design going forward. The finished hare has been based on their writing pieces and folktales on hares.

Watch this space as the team paint the hare ready for the trail.

Last term the Science Faculty started a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) club for KS3 students after school on Tuesdays and we have offered a range of activities that students wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to experience in their regular science lessons.

More UKMT maths challenge success for Katie who achieved a merit in the senior kangaroo competition.

Katie is hoping to study Maths at University next year.

We are committed towards ensuring that our Year 11s are able to maximise their exam potential and the Year 11 Mock Exams play an key role in supporting this drive. 

It has therefore been great to see the countless examples of individual student success highlighted by the results and I would like to thank the Year 11 students for the effort towards these exams.

With the new 1-9 grading system in place, a grade 5 denotes what is nationally being considered as a 'Strong Pass'.

I would therefore like to offer a special Congratulations to the following Year 11 students who achieved a Grade 5 or above in all of their Mock Exams.

On Thursday 18th January we had some more visitors from Sprowston Junior Year 6.

More fun and learning in the Science Department, this time with Dr Leeder at the helm.

Another enjoyable and informative session.

Family Voice is a collective of parents and carers of children with special and additional needs working voluntarily and 'Aiming High'.

Our aim is to make sure that parents' voices are heard when it comes to planning and decision making about services for our children in Norfolk.

We seek to work together with the Local Authority, NHS Norfolk and other service providers; we do not work for them, we help to inform good practice.

Congratulations to HJ on winning the year 9 tutor room xmas decoration prize.

They celebrated the start of the year with a bumper pizza lunch!

Well done everyone!

On Wednesday 10th January, a group of Year 6s from Sprowston Junior School came on a visit to work with Miss Leverington in our Science Department. They had a fun and informative practical session based on light - how light travels, reflection and how we can split white light into different colours.
