We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community Academy should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
We hope that the Year 11’s have had a successful first week with the written GCSE examinations. They have been superb in terms of their approach to the revision session, as well as the exams. The students have conducted themselves in an organised, mature and determined way.
Attached to this you will find the revision being offered at present, for the half term week. This is offered for exams that occur in June and is in addition to the students own revision.
Can we thank you again for all the support with the revision and exam process and hope that next week, which is slightly more intense in terms of number and length of exams, is as successful as the start we have had.

Year 8 geographers test hypotheses about the impact of buildings on climate.
Here they are investigating wind speeds.
Sixth Form students have had a huge variety of information delivered to them this year through our Tuesday assembly slot.
Here are some of the organisations involved. We are very grateful to them all.
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.
A Levels mock exams take place between 26th June and 2nd July 2018. I have provided all Year 12 students with a copy of the mock exam timetable and enclose a copy with this letter. I will also provide advice to all year 12 students regarding revision and how devise a revision timetable.
It would be very helpful if you were able to discuss this at home.
I would like to wish all Year 12 students the very best of luck in the mock exams and hope they achieve grades that reflect their attitude to learning and their preparation.
The Year 11 Revision & Exam Programme (below) is what Year 11 students will follow during the exam period starting 14th May. This has been shared with students and they have had an assembly on Monday explaining the process. The programme outlines the details of the revision sessions offered prior to exams, as well as the times of the exams themselves.
Students need to highlight the exams and revision that they are entered for, and carefully follow this, making sure they are in the correct place – either the exam, a revision session, or their normal lesson. Each student also has an individual exam timetable. All of this information on exams is on the CM Exams notice board.
Doddle provides a comprehensive range of engaging online teaching, homework and assessment resources, to support learning and progress across the secondary curriculum in a range of subjects. It allows staff to assign varied resources to support classroom learning (presentations, audio, animations and revision materials), interactive presentations and self-marking quizzes to instantly assess understanding, and a secure and straightforward platform for teachers to assign any homework task.
Here at Sprowston Community High School we have so much to offer and celebrate within the school. We post a number of articles on the school website but there is a wealth of information to be found in our numerous twitter feeds. Below we have listed the individual accounts and link to them.
