Last term the Science Faculty started a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) club for KS3 students after school on Tuesdays and we have offered a range of activities that students wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to experience in their regular science lessons.
We are committed towards ensuring that our Year 11s are able to maximise their exam potential and the Year 11 Mock Exams play an key role in supporting this drive.
It has therefore been great to see the countless examples of individual student success highlighted by the results and I would like to thank the Year 11 students for the effort towards these exams.
With the new 1-9 grading system in place, a grade 5 denotes what is nationally being considered as a 'Strong Pass'.
I would therefore like to offer a special Congratulations to the following Year 11 students who achieved a Grade 5 or above in all of their Mock Exams.
On Thursday 18th January we had some more visitors from Sprowston Junior Year 6.
More fun and learning in the Science Department, this time with Dr Leeder at the helm.
Another enjoyable and informative session.
Family Voice is a collective of parents and carers of children with special and additional needs working voluntarily and 'Aiming High'.
Our aim is to make sure that parents' voices are heard when it comes to planning and decision making about services for our children in Norfolk.
We seek to work together with the Local Authority, NHS Norfolk and other service providers; we do not work for them, we help to inform good practice.
Another addition to our list of super-stars on the YR7 notice board. Erin's report on the Battle of Hastings was a really fantastic piece of work.
A very promising young historian!
I was pleased to be able to give her a certificate and prize for her efforts. Well done Erin!
On Wednesday 10th January, a group of Year 6s from Sprowston Junior School came on a visit to work with Miss Leverington in our Science Department. They had a fun and informative practical session based on light - how light travels, reflection and how we can split white light into different colours.
We look forward to seeing more Year 6s from Sprowston Junior next week.
We would like to share some important information regarding the support offered to Year 11 students as well as an outline of the revision and preparation for each subject; designed to maximise individual success.
