    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.

  • I took Year 9 and Year 10 German students on a Langauge Day to Cambridge University on Friday 27.03.18.

    We shared a bus with students from Hellesdon High School and this gave students an opportunity to forge friendships on the journey.

    All our students were exceptional in their behaviour and conduct all day and it was a pleasure to share the day with them.

  • Congratulations to 9MN for winning the tutor group with the most achievement points during tracking 3 and to 9MP for winning the best average ATL award beating HJ by 0.01!

    Well done everyone keep up the hard work during tracking 4 and see if your tutor group will be the one who receives a visit from the Ice Cream Van!

    Mr Cordeaux

  • Last term the team of Year 9s completed painting our Hare to represent Sprowston Community Academy on the GoGo Hares trail. They chose a design to reflect the ideas of the hare in folklore. They researched how the hare has been seen as a trickster and a supernatural being.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    Mr Cordeaux

  • Thank you so much to all the performers at the Xmas assembly today - 7 in total (a record)! You were all outstanding and I've already had loads of comments from students and staff saying how much they enjoyed your performances. Thank you so much for participating and showing what a talented year group we are.

    Thanks also to all the tutors who put so much work into the Xmas competitions.

    Please have a look at the video if you were unable to see the assembly.

  • We are one of the first 100 schools and community groups to sign up to GoGoCreate – the official Learning Programme for GoGoHares 2018.

    Break charity are delighted to have us on board!

    So, what is GoGoCreate?

    GoGoCreate offers a chance for schools, sports clubs and other community groups to get involved. The hare sculptures will be joined by smaller leaping leverets, decorated by children, which will star in their own trail for nine weeks during the summer. At the end of the trail the sculpture will be returned to our school for a lasting legacy of this unique project. The GoGoCreate trail will take place from 2 July until 2 September 2018 and the main GoGoHares trail will run from 28 June to 8 September 2018.

  • On Monday, Year 8 and Year 9 watched a thought provoking and powerful dramatic performance from theatre specialists Alter Ego about County Lines.

  • Certificates of Achievements

    We have just celebrated those students who at the end of year 8 going into year 9 achieved silver & gold certificates of achievement.

    Congratulations to:

  • We took 29 students from Years 8, 9 & 10 to Spain for a water sports trip during the May half-term.  The fantastic trip took in activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, pico sailing, wind surfing, snorkling among others.  It also included a day trip to Barcelona and the whole week was a great success.

    The company in charge of the trip commended our students on their attitude in a testing week.  We are investigating going on a similar trip in the summer of 2019.

  • On Thursday the 6th of July 90 Years 9 and 10 Media Studies and Design Technology students went to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studios.

    The students got to experience the magic behind the movies and see where the franchise really began and discovered how the set and props were created. They also got a chance to see the original costumes and marvel at the creature workshop. Some students also made the most of the CGI and special effects experiences on offer, such as flying a broomstick in front of a green screen or having a drink with Hagrid in the optical illusion exhibit.

  • Congratulations to all of the students from Y7 to Y10 who have successfully completed phonics programmes this year. We have seen all of the students engaging really positively and as a result students have made significant progress in reading and spelling scores. Special thanks to Mrs Richardson for running these interventions and organising the celebration party- it was a bit hot for cake but we managed it anyway!

    In preparation for their forthcoming GCSE studies, the Year 9 students have started working on the topics of tropical Rainforests and Cold Environments.

    As two of the topics included in the new GCSE Syllabus, this will give them a great head start for next year. These models-created by the students and based on self selected success criteria-have helped to develop their understanding of the role of tropical Rain Forests and to learn about the different layers found within them.

  • 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.

  • The options process is complete (well nearly…) and you did very well. There was a lot of information given, a whole load of assemblies and even more paperwork! I hope you are all pleased with the choices you made and excited about the journey ahead.

    A couple of reminders from me in terms of priorities this term…..
