Welcome to the Summer Term. This is an important term for many reasons. A particular mention must go to all students sitting exams this term. Please know that we are thinking of you and you have our total support- let us know if there is anything you need or anything at all that we can do to help in these last stages.
It is also a time of transition. We are so looking forward to meeting the 280 students joining us in Y7 next year. We are delighted to be full in this year group and can't wait to prove to you why you have made a great choice in coming to Sprowston Community Academy. At the same time, we are preparing our Y9 students to become GCSE students and our Y11/Y13 students to take their next steps to adulthood.
We are really proud of our Academy and the all the people in it- our fantastic students, teaching staff and support staff. It is a real team effort and we are looking forward to this final term of 2018/19. We set ourselves the target of being the best version of Sprowston that we could possibly be and we are determined to end the year on a high.
