We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
Another addition to our list of super-stars on the YR7 notice board. Erin's report on the Battle of Hastings was a really fantastic piece of work.
A very promising young historian!
I was pleased to be able to give her a certificate and prize for her efforts. Well done Erin!
On Wednesday 10th January, a group of Year 6s from Sprowston Junior School came on a visit to work with Miss Leverington in our Science Department. They had a fun and informative practical session based on light - how light travels, reflection and how we can split white light into different colours.
We look forward to seeing more Year 6s from Sprowston Junior next week.
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.

It was great to meet the students this morning who have received over 30 achievement points already in Year 7. They have each received a 'Silver Award' and a prize to reward the effort they are putting into lessons.
A really impressive group of students.
It was lovely to see so many of our past Year 13 students and parents at our Prize Winners Awards Evening. One of my favourite parts of this job is when students are at the end of their school career and we have seen them change and grow into young adults. More so at Sixth Form level, when you know what exciting opportunities at university and in the world of work they have left to do. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about what you’ve been up to. A complete photo gallery can be found at the bottom of this article.
Thank you to all the parents, carers and guardians of Year 9 students who completed the parent view questionnaire at Parents' Evening, the responses from which can be seen on the Parent View page.
Year 7 impressed us with their entries in the first Sprowston Christmas Season Art Competition. Year 12 students, Marcelina Grenda and Alice Bush, organised the competition with prizes provided by our local Tesco and from the Head of Art Ms Humpleby.
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.
Congratulations to all pupils nominated and awarded Star of the Week for this autumn half term, 2017.
Please find the full list of nominations below.
We are piloting the use of the Sports Houses within the academic side of the school with Year 7s this year. This is a new development for us here at Sprowston and we are looking to embed Sports Houses further as the year progresses.
We have four Houses: Chiefs, Giants, Tornadoes and Vikings, and the awards given each term will also follow the PE assessment approach of Heads, Heart and Hands.
For the Autumn term their scores have all been tallied up for the most progress against targets (Heads), the highest Attendance and/or Attitude to Learning Scores (Heart) and the highest Achievement Points minus Behaviour Points (Hands).
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.
