Congratulations to all of the students who were nominated for Star of the Week this half term.
This is in recognition for excellence in or out of lessons, students' positive attitude, or academic achievement.
Keep up the good work.
The next few weeks on the run up to Christmas are very important as for the first time ever you have the opportunity to shape your education, choosing some of the subjects you will study in years 10 and 11.
As a year group you are making great progress across the curriculum, but there is still a lot to be done between now and the end of Year 9 so keep up the good work.
Congratulations to all the students from this half term who achieved an Academic Success Award. This is to recognise their outstanding academic achievement and attitude.
The awards are given by class teachers to those students who have shone in terms of working extra hard in and out of lessons, or persevering with difficult work, along with those who have exceeded their personal target grades and achieved at a high level.
Well done to all students and keep up these really high standards for the rest of the year.
This year the Y13 students and Art Teachers Ms Humpleby, Ms Harris and Mr Wesley have formed a Collective Art group called the Sprowston Community Academy Art Team in order to take part in the 2020 Print Exchange.
The collaboration is an international event organised by Hot Bed Press in Manchester and takes place each year; this year over 500 artists from around 40 print studios signed up to this year's print exchange including international printing neighbours in CANADA, DENMARK, HONG KONG, ICELAND, IRELAND & RUSSIA so we are super accepted to have been allowed to take part. The exchange is a catalyst for links and collaborations between print workshops.
Congratulations to Thomas Beer, Georgia Tilley, Amy Pendle, Ivy Henderson, Luke Allen, Gab Liaudanskis and Ronny Sonkoue who all received medals for achieving more than 200 points during the Manga High challenge. They completed maths games and quizzes to win points.
The school came in the top 10 schools in the South of England and the school was awarded an £100 prize.
Thanks to all students who took part.
We have had a very busy few weeks in the Geography department – with 5 trips going out of school in the last 3 weeks. Years 12, 10 and 7 have been lucky enough to take their learning outside of the classroom.
Sixth Form students have visited Cromer & Winterton beaches and Norwich City Centre. They have been collecting data and testing hypothesise about sediment movement, sand dune formation and clone towns. Students have taken part as they soon begin their A Level coursework. These field trips have helped them to decide the theme of their investigation and helped them to choose a title. Good luck with yours coursework.
