I am delighted that this year we are bringing back Activities Days. It is important to us that students get a wealth of experiences at school including a chance to take part in different activities with their peer group that they might not otherwise experience. I would like to thank Miss Kersey who has been instrumental in designing and organising the programme for this year. It has been a massive task but she has done it with her usual passion and determination!
We also look forward to our annual Sport Awards evening which recognises the massive part that Sport and PE play in the life of our academy. Once again, many students have been invited to attend because of the highly valued contribution that they make to individual and team sports.
Whilst academic success is important, it is just as important that we create strong minded, independent students who have the character, resilience and determination to be successful in the real world. We continue to look at all aspects of our curriculum and extra-curricular offer to make sure we are offering something for everyone and being the best version of Sprowston Community Academy that we can be.
Have a great half term.
We have had a very busy few weeks in the Geography department – with 5 trips going out of school in the last 3 weeks. Years 12, 10 and 7 have been lucky enough to take their learning outside of the classroom.
Sixth Form students have visited Cromer & Winterton beaches and Norwich City Centre. They have been collecting data and testing hypothesise about sediment movement, sand dune formation and clone towns. Students have taken part as they soon begin their A Level coursework. These field trips have helped them to decide the theme of their investigation and helped them to choose a title. Good luck with yours coursework.
Congratulations to: Phoebe, Lucy and Emilie on completing their Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Training
The Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme is part of the charity, the Diana Award. After her tragic death in 1997, The Diana Award was set up in 1999 to continue Princess Diana’s Legacy of love, compassion, service to others and above all her belief that young people can change the world. Young people from any background and any walk of life can be inspirational role models.

The Geography Department is looking forward to taking Year 7 out for a tour of our fine city!
Deadline to secure a place on the trip is Friday 21st June.
Congratulations to all the students from this half term who achieved an Academic Success Award. This is to recognise their outstanding academic achievement and attitude.
The awards are given by class teachers to those students who have shone in terms of working extra hard in and out of lessons, or persevering with difficult work, along with those who have exceeded their personal target grades and achieved at a high level.
Well done to all students and keep up these really high standards for the rest of the year.
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.
Congratulations to Mr Cordeaux's Year 7 History class who made and presented their black death cures to the class. The winners were Phoebe, Eva & Josh.
Congratulations to Mr Cordeaux's Yr7 history students who were winners of a very closely contested Castle designing competition!
Well done to Harley, Hayden, Colin, Poppy, Freya, Danny & Kimberly.
Year 11 students will follow this Revision and Exam programme from Monday 13th May during the exam period instead of just their normal timetable.
The programme outlines the details of the final revision sessions offered directly before their exams, as well as the times of the exams themselves.
Students need to highlight the subjects that they are entered for, and carefully follow this making sure they are in the correct place – either in an exam, a revision session, or their normal lesson.
Best of luck to all Year 11s over this period of time.
