It was fantastic to see so many year 11 students and parents/carers attending our revision evening last week. It speaks volumes about how determined year 11 are to get it right and the support that we have from our families. This Thursday evening we welcome the parents and carers of our year 7 students to discuss how well students have settled in and to discuss if there is anything else that we can do to support students in terms of progress and well-being.
We are really keen to work with parents and carers to get it right. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are concerned about anything or have any questions or queries. Last week a parent pointed out to us that there was a mismatch between our uniform policy on the website and in the journal; we are working to fix that now. It is always helpful for us to know how things are perceived by parents and if there are things we could think about doing differently. We are absolutely determined to be a High school that the Sprowston community can be really proud of and your views and feedback are an important part of our reflection and development.

At SCA we want every opportunity to praise students for excellent effort, achievement and attitudes to learning to be seized. Everybody feels motivated by encouragement and praise.
We have asked students through the Student leadership ‘Active Citizens’ for their ideas and opinions on how as a school we rewards, praise and celebrate.
Please find attached to this article the 2018 GCSE Mock exam timetable for December 2018. Individual timetables have also been printed and shared with students today. Using this, students should start to plan their revision for the next 4/5 weeks. To support this, a blank revision timetable plan and instructions are attached, which may be of use to plan out revision.
Congratulations to all of the students who were nominated for Star of the Week this half term.
This is in recognition for excellence in or out of lessons, students' positive attitude, or academic achievement.
Keep up the good work.
The English department was bubbling over with enthusiasm from our students last week at open evening.
We hope you enjoyed your time talking to us about what we do in English at SCA.
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.
