I am absolutely delighted to be taking on the role of Acting Head of School between now and Christmas.
Sprowston Community Academy is a fantastic school in the heart of a vibrant community. The Leadership Team and I will be working as hard as we can to make sure the school goes from strength to strength during this time period.
Our focus will be simple:
High Expectations for Learning
High Expectations for Behaviour
High expectations for kindness, respect and tolerance
This is a busy half term. Our Year 11 and Year 13 students will be completing their exams before saying their goodbyes. We wish them all lots of luck and happiness. As these year groups leave, we prepare to welcome our new Year 7s and transition arrangements are well underway.
The summer term offers an opportunity for reflection and celebration. As we write our development plans for next year, we will also be reviewing our policies and making sure we set the right context so that we are a high achieving school where students also feel happy, fulfilled, engaged and safe.
Please continue to communicate with us and share your ideas for school improvement. We value the opinions of all of our stakeholders and feel that this is very much a team effort.

Mya Fairweather was our successful student in the PhotoEast Opportunity, Having worked with a professional Photographer mentor for the last 2 months Mya's work is now on display in the PhotoEast 2018 exhibition at University of Suffolk until 24th June.
It was a fabulous experience and I hope Mya's experience and her work inspires other students to enter the competition for participation next year. Well done Mya!
Norwich Museums Service are offering a number of courses that might be of interest to some of our Sixth Form students.
We hope that the Year 11’s have had a successful first week with the written GCSE examinations. They have been superb in terms of their approach to the revision session, as well as the exams. The students have conducted themselves in an organised, mature and determined way.
Attached to this you will find the revision being offered at present, for the half term week. This is offered for exams that occur in June and is in addition to the students own revision.
Can we thank you again for all the support with the revision and exam process and hope that next week, which is slightly more intense in terms of number and length of exams, is as successful as the start we have had.
