On the 2nd November we took four students to the City of Norwich school to compete in the UKMT Senior Team Maths Challenge.
We came 10th overall and had a great day out.
Congratulations and thanks to M Walker, J Overton, G Cushion and K Orbell for being great ambassadors for the school.
Over the initial three - four weeks of the first autumn half-term, our Year 11 students diligently prepared for their Spoken Language assessment which requires them to create and deliver a formal presentation to an audience. We are very proud that the vast majority of our cohort met the challenge head-on, with confidence and a desire to succeed.
These presentations (as a requirement of the exam board) were filmed and will be sent off to a moderator for corroboration of our marking. Admirably, some students were not ready to settle for their first grading and therefore bravely gave a second presentation to achieve their full potential.
We are delighted and honoured to have been awarded the BBC Children In Need loyal supporter status.
As one of our top school fundraisers for BBC Children in Need in 2016, we wish to say a big THANK YOU to the staff, pupils and wider school community for your loyal support offered to the charity.
On the 17th October the Science Faculty took 15 students to the Norwich Science Festival. The students had a great time working on different experiments and listenting to some really interesting speakers. The students wrote their thoughts about the day, some of which are listed below and please view the photo gallery of the day.
Today at the Science festival at the Forum we did some really cool experiments using things such as coding robots and using microscopes. Ben Smith
Yesterday I met with another Year 7 super-star, Finley Cocking from 7LE. Finley has now gained 22 achievement points this half-term and received a thoroughly deserved Award certificate and Amazon voucher. Well done Finley!
Despite a late burst from several of the Year 7 Forms, 7LE have pipped the others to the post and accrued a massive 205 achievement points this half-term. This means they have won this half-term's challenge and can look forward to a pizza lunch after the break - well done 7LE!!
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 Year 6 Open Evening.
They performed so well and gave such a great account of their start at Sprowston Community High School. What a talented trio they are!
