Families of Year 6 children moving up to High School in September 2017 are warmly welcome to our Open Evening on Thursday this week.
I am so proud of our wonderful vibrant school: we have excellent GCSE and A Level results and so much more besides to offer your child. All of us believe that each and every child has the potential to succeed and enjoy their time at school - we give them the opportunity to do just that.
Open Evening starts at 6.00 pm in the main Hall, followed by student tours of the school to visit departments, faculties and classrooms, and to talk to staff and students. Lots and lots going on throughout the evening. We look forward to meeting you with a warm and happy welcome on Thursday.
Our Open Week begins Monday 3 October through to Friday 7 October. If you cannot make Open Evening or Open Week, please contact the main office and talk with the Office Manager, Ann Burton, to arrange a suitable timeslot.

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.'
Dear Parent/Guardian of Year 11 students
Please find attached an outline of the GCSE catch up and controlled assessment sessions throughout this term, taking place at lunchtimes and after school (3.30-4.30pm) for Year 11 students. These additional sessions are to support the completion of class work and/or controlled assessment that count towards student’s final grades, should students feel they are needed. Some students will have been specifically advised to attend certain sessions based on their tracking data and progress through their controlled assessments.
The second page of the attached is a years overview of our subject’s Controlled Assessment (CA) dates and when practical subjects are preparing for their exams. I hope this provides a useful overview so you are aware of what students are working on or when pressure points appear for example.
This information is subject to change as we move through the year, but at present this is the plan.
Can we take this opportunity to thank you for your anticipated support and assistance throughout Year 11.
Mr Ben Utting
With the window for options changes closed, it has been nice to see the Year 10 students settling into their new courses. Popping into their classes, it has been lovely to see the students so focused and so many producing some excellent work. To credit this, I will be taking the 'retro' step of re-introducing the traditional gold star!
It is a very simply concept; if I see work into which I feel they have put their all into, I will give them a gold sticker and a thank you. I am hoping this small gesture toward their effort will least make a small part of their day a little bit nicer.

It was lovely to have staff in from Falcon Junior School today to visit the Year 7s and see how they are settling in. The students are always surprised and really pleased to see them.
These links are all part of making the transition as positive for students as possible.

NCS is proven to have a massive impact on young people’s lives.
On NCS, your teenager will develop the skills that employers increasingly value: confidence, leadership and independence.
