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.'
Congratulations to 9MN for winning the tutor group with the most achievement points during tracking 3 and to 9MP for winning the best average ATL award beating HJ by 0.01!
Well done everyone keep up the hard work during tracking 4 and see if your tutor group will be the one who receives a visit from the Ice Cream Van!
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.
Last term the team of year 9 completed painting our hare to represent Sprowston Community Academy on the GoGo Hares trail. They chose a design to reflect the ideas of the hare in folklore. They researched how the hare has been seen as a trickster and a supernatural being.
On Thursday I met with the students who have achieved the top Attitudes to Learning scores in Year 7 at the end of the Spring term.

Well done to you all.
