We have been asked to take part in the Moth in a China Shop's £50 Challenge. The aim of this is to get students enterprising and selling items made from Mr Hugh's rapeseed oil to their peers. The profits are to go to local charity, A Moth in a China Shop. They have given us £50 per group to take part and learn some entrepreneurial skills along with how to run a business.
Year 11 GCSE Mock Photography students and their work.
A few more examples of the excellent work produced during their GCSE Mock held before Christmas - what a wonderful group of students the GCSE Photography students are.
Well done to the fabulous Year 11 Art students and their excellent Ceramic work produced in the GCSE Mock exam. Special mention goes to Nathan Spooner, Chloe Wells and Emily Grover for the ambitious scales and techniques but there ares so many others to praise too.
These students have achieved the highest Attitude to learning grades in Year 7 in the second half of the Autumn Term.
To achieve this means they have worked very hard and to a consistently high level in all their lessons.
Well done to them all.
Congratulations to Sprowston's Prize Winners and Inspirational Speech from ex-Sixth Form student Billie Bell
Last week we were proud and privileged to welcome back Sprowston's brightest and best students for our annual Prize Winners Celebration Ceremony. We were lucky enough to be joined not only by many of last years GCSE and A Level students, their families but also by Billie Bell whose speech was simply inspirational.
I hope that you enjoyed a pleasant festive period and can I wish you a happy new year. We now enter the final two terms of your son/daughter’s time in Year 11 and our focus turns to the final exams starting in May. I would like to share some important information regarding the support offered to the Year 11s, as well as an outline of the revision and preparation for subjects, to maximise individual success.
Here at Sprowston we offer a range of extra curricular sports clubs.
Clubs are all free of charge (except the cheerleading, that is done through an outside coach). Go to the changing rooms either at lunch time or straight after school to get changed and then head straight to the venue of the club.
Anyone can just turn up to any club.
If you need anymore information on any sporting club, see a member of the PE team.
Thank you to all the parents, carers and guardians of Year 7, 9 and 10 students who filled in the parent view questionnaire at the last parents' evening, the responses of which can be on the Parent View page.
