Consultation on pupil numbers

Following a detailed analysis of population demographics, Norfolk County Council has identified the need for an additional 200 school places for secondary pupils in and around the Sprowston area of Norwich.

Boudica Schools Trust (BST) has run Sprowston Community Academy since February 2018 and across that time we have gained detailed knowledge and understanding of the capacity of the school site. It is our view that the site can comfortably accommodate additional pupils over and above the current maximum number.

Norfolk County Council has obtained planning permission for an additional building on the school site and as such, BST is proposing to increase the capacity at Sprowston Community Academy from 1,400 secondary places to 1,650 secondary places from Autumn 2022.
