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.
Well done to all students who took part in reading challenge. Some of them met in Mr Jones's room on Wednesday lunchtime and discussed what they had been reading. The range of books was very wide, and the enthusiasm was excellent.
Look out for more reading events through the year.
If you weren't able to come to the meeting and would like to hand in your form, bring it to Mr Jones in WS07
In July some of our students participated in a competition run by maths games website Mangahigh.
The competition was called 'Boss of the South' and it involved over 600 other Secondary schools in the South of England competing for prizes (and a £250 Amazon voucher!).
The students were challenged with the task of earning over 150 points during the competition. To earn these points, they had to complete various Mangahigh Maths challenges and play Mangahigh Maths games.
Well done to our top scoring students in Mangahigh's Boss of the South competition. The school won £100 and many students received individual prizes.
A great team effort!
As a school we have high expectations for student’s attitudes to learning and behaviour.
We want all of our students to come to school and experience lessons that are calm, purposeful and challenging and where they are motivated to achieve.
All students in our school deserve the chance to learn and to make the progress they are capable of.
Our expectations include the following.
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 Academy 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.
