    Revision Guide to support Yr11s in their revision and preparation for the summer exams. This booklet covers our top tips for revision, revision technique ideas for students to try and revision ‘Dos and Don’ts’.

    For revision to be successful it also needs to be organised carefully. Attached are two alternative revision timetable templates and instructions to use. Students should plan their revision, managing their time and making sure that all subjects are covered. This plan can include nights off and breaks as well. Students should try to follow it closely and get into the habit of ' a little and often' as an approach.

    Finally students sometimes don't always know the best approach for certain subjects when it comes to revision, or they just don't know how to start. Attached is a document called 'How best to revise in...' which is an outline per subject of the 3 or 4 top tips specific to revision in each subject. The best idea is to start with a simple technique like 'read, cover, recall' and see if that works best for you.

  • Find out about Year 11 choices, academic intervention and extra sessions designed to support students in their final year of main school.

    We feel that it is crucial for you as parents and carers to be aware of and help us promote all the opportunities which are designed to support and enhance achievement for our students. The year group as a whole achieved well in their first year of GCSEs in Year 10 and we want to build on this success.

    Our approach to Year 11, GCSE studies and exams has been refined over recent years with excellent outcomes and growing success, and we look forward to working with you and the students to achieve even better this year.

  • Year 11 students have been working exceptionally hard after school and at home, preparing and completing revision for the final exams in the summer.

    The assemblies since the mock exams have covered the 'opportunities' that will be offered and making the most of these, which the students certainly have.

    This student booklet offers practical advice to students linked to the 'Do's' and 'Don'ts' for revision, a range of revision techniques to try out and advice for the lead up, night before, morning and day of the exams.

    A revision timetable outline can also be found here with instructions on how to plan and organise the time between now and the exams, setting out the exact timing for revision of students' subjects.

    Preparation and organisation are key and this timetable really does help.

     

  • 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.

  • We would like to share some important information regarding the support offered to Year 11 students as well as an outline of the revision and preparation for each subject; designed to maximise individual success.

    Please open the attachments for more information on the following.

    • GCSE Revision Sessions
    • Earning Revision Points
    • Exam Support Evening
    • Year 11 Parents Evening
    • Revision Guides

  • As the mock exam season kicks off, it is great to see that Year 11 is in a very positive position.  

    The Year 11 reports which will now be arriving with you offer a clear indication of the likely GCSE grades that our students will achieve. 

    The PPG (Professionally Predicted Grade) provides a teacher's best judgement on  the grade that the students will achieve in their exam.  These grades are built on performance in lessons, attainment in assessments and the teacher's underpinning knowledge of each student's aptitude and attitude.

    When considered together, the data indicates that we have a year group that is not only meeting, but is actually exceeding the expected levels of progress.  Reports also indicate a myriad of individual cases of success and the evidence of hard work and a shear determination to excel. 

    A big well done to all the students who have worked hard this term, I wish them the very best of luck throughout their mock exams.

    Mr Bidle

  • Please find attached the Mock Exam timetable that has been shared and printed for students today. Using this, students should pick out their specific exams from the list and plan their revision for the next 3 or 4 weeks, accordingly. To support the preparation for this, I also attach a blank revision timetable plan which may be of use, although there are many mobile phone apps and other approaches which are equally effective in planning revision.

    The mocks offer an opportunity for students to get into good revision and exam habits, using an approach of ‘a little and often’ to revision and planning it effectively.

  • We will be holding a week of assemblies dedicated to options in the Sixth Form for Year 11 students during the week of Monday 30th October - Friday 3rd November

    Taster Day will give Year 11 the opportunity to live life as a Sixth Form student for the day and also the chance to sample taster lessons in a variety of subjects. It will be held on Thursday 30th November 2017 8.55-3.25. It is non uniform for those taking part and Year 11 lessons will run as normal for those who are not participating.

  • 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.

  • A very big well done to all those in Years 9, 10 and 11 who took part in the UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge 2017. Students from across these three year-groups won a total of 17 certificates at silver and bronze level, after pitting their wits against the notoriously fiendish problems in this year’s edition the famous Challenge. It was an absolute pleasure to present these awards to our gifted Key Stage 4 students, and particularly the year 9 stars of the future.

    Mr Crowley

  • A summary of parents & carers views for years 7, 9, 10 and 11 has been compiled to show how well the school is performing in certain areas.

  • Yesterday we held the regional finals. Engineering Motion and all staff involved were really impressed with the premises and how well we managed this event, so much so that they will be coming back next year.

  • Well done to the fabulous Year 11 Art students and their excellent Ceramic work produced in the GCSE Mock exam. Special mention goes to Nathan Spooner, Chloe Wells and Emily Grover for the ambitious scales and techniques but there ares so many others to praise too.

  • As part of our Anti-Bullying Awareness Scheme here at Sprowston Community High School our Year 10 & 11 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors visited Falcon Junior School on Tuesday 15th November to run workshops with Year 5 on the effects bullying has on a young person physically and mentally. The content of the day consisted of team building activities and role play scenarios tackling many different types of bullying, the day ended with reflection and evaluation.

  • Sprowston Community High School has been victorious in the East Anglian heats at the annual Top of the Bench Science Investigation Day, and will go on to compete in the national finals in 2017.

  • Great news! We run Homework Club after school for all students in Pathways in CM Block
