Find out about Year 11 choices, academic intervention and extra sessions designed to support students in their final year of main school.
We feel that it is crucial for you as parents and carers to be aware of and help us promote all the opportunities which are designed to support and enhance achievement for our students. The year group as a whole achieved well in their first year of GCSEs in Year 10 and we want to build on this success.
Our approach to Year 11, GCSE studies and exams has been refined over recent years with excellent outcomes and growing success, and we look forward to working with you and the students to achieve even better this year.
Well done to all students who took part in reading challenge. Some of them met in Mr Jones's room on Wednesday lunchtime and discussed what they had been reading. The range of books was very wide, and the enthusiasm was excellent.
Look out for more reading events through the year.
If you weren't able to come to the meeting and would like to hand in your form, bring it to Mr Jones in WS07
In July some of our students participated in a competition run by maths games website Mangahigh.
The competition was called 'Boss of the South' and it involved over 600 other Secondary schools in the South of England competing for prizes (and a £250 Amazon voucher!).
The students were challenged with the task of earning over 150 points during the competition. To earn these points, they had to complete various Mangahigh Maths challenges and play Mangahigh Maths games.
Well done to our top scoring students in Mangahigh's Boss of the South competition. The school won £100 and many students received individual prizes.
A great team effort!
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.

On Wednesday 11th July, we had the privilege of visiting Cecil Gowing Infant School. We planned for them to have a magical teddy bears’ picnic.
We really enjoyed spending time with the children, getting to know them and sharing the lovely experience with them. We really did enjoy planning this event for the children and were so impressed with their manners and kindness towards us and each other.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon.
We have great pleasure celebrating the achievement of two students, Emily Grover and Connor Stout who successfully entered work into the The Norfolk Art & Design Competition 2018.
The Competition celebrates creative student talent from sixth forms and colleges across Norfolk.
Congratulations to all pupils nominated for Star of the Week for the Summer 2 Term, 2018.
The nominations were made by the teachers and members of staff for exceptional effort, attitude, work or progress. These names will be entered into a half term draw to win vouchers.
Well done and keep up these excellent standards
I travelled across to Drachten in the Netherlands on Wednesday 27th June. I left Norwich at 6am and travelled by coach and ferry, arriving at 10pm. We camped outside the sportshall in tents and slept on army beds which I found reasonably comfortable!
Thursday consisted of the official opening ceremony where teams were in two minds whether to run onto the pitch or walk when their names were announced. England walked on whereas Catalonia ran on. Afterwards, all the countries took part in a joint training session which was led by an experienced Netherlands coach who taught us some important skills needed to play Korfball.
