  • I met with some Year 7 students last week who I had the pleasure to award certificates for the amount of achievement points they have gained this year.

    Over 30 points were awarded the Silver certificate and over 50 points the Gold certificate. A tremendous effort - well done!

    Mr Setchell

    Names as follows:

  • On Thursday I met with the students who have achieved the top Attitudes to Learning scores in Year 7 at the end of the Spring term.

    This is a really special achievement and is testimony to their hard work and enthusiasm for their school work.

    Well done to you all.

    Mr Setchell

  • The year 7 Netball team battled the weather conditions to finish runners up of the Norwich schools tournament on Thursday 16th March.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    Mr Setchell

  • It was great to meet the students this morning who have received over 30 achievement points already in Year 7. They have each received a 'Silver Award' and a prize to reward the effort they are putting into lessons.

    A really impressive group of students.

    Mr Setchell

  • We are piloting the use of the Sports Houses within the academic side of the school with Year 7s this year. This is a new development for us here at Sprowston and we are looking to embed Sports Houses further as the year progresses.

    We have four Houses: Chiefs, Giants, Tornadoes and Vikings, and the awards given each term will also follow the PE assessment approach of Heads, Heart and Hands.

    For the Autumn term their scores have all been tallied up for the most progress against targets (Heads), the highest Attendance and/or Attitude to Learning Scores (Heart) and the highest Achievement Points minus Behaviour Points (Hands).

  • I wanted to take the time to say a huge well-done to Arwen Stewart in Year 8.

    Arwen recently took part in the World Karate Championships in London. She is clearly an extremely talented martial artist as she won gold in the team, female kata. She also won bronze in the team kumite and bronze again in mixed team kata with Luca Occhionero who’s one of our Year 7 students.

    What an incredible achievement for both pupils!

  • We are getting some lovely decorations brought to us for the competition we are running in Year 7.

    Some really talented students who have real creative flair! Here are Eleanor, Daisy and Teigan's efforts - brilliant!

    Mr Setchell

  • We are running an Xmas competition in the run up to end of term in Year 7 and one of the challenges for students is to make the best Xmas decorations both for their form display and individually.

    Students in 7LE were an absolute hive of activity and a there was a really lovely atmosphere in the room - I am so impressed with these students!

    Mr Setchell

  • I met with five more Year 7 superstars today to give them certificates and a prize.

    Martyna, Georgia, Jude and Niaz were all highly praised for their great work in MFL and Freya has made some excellent contributions to her Form Group. I am really impressed with these students - well done!

    Mr Setchell

  • 7LE enjoyed their pizza lunch today which they thoroughly deserved for topping the tutor groups with the most achievement points in the first half term.

    What a great effort.

    Will they hold the title for a second time this half-term? They'll be hard to beat!

    Mr Setchell

  • Do you like trying new things?

    Experimenting in Science?

    Designing and building?

    Solving problems?

    Then this could be for you!

  • Yesterday I met with another Year 7 super-star, Finley Cocking from 7LE. Finley has now gained 22 achievement points this half-term and received a thoroughly deserved Award certificate and Amazon voucher. Well done Finley!

    Despite a late burst from several of the Year 7 Forms, 7LE have pipped the others to the post and accrued a massive 205 achievement points this half-term. This means they have won this half-term's challenge and can look forward to a pizza lunch after the break - well done 7LE!!

    Mr Setchell

  • I met with Georgia W, Ellie C and Harrison M this morning to give them Awards certificates and Amazon vouchers as a thank you for their fantastic speeches on the Year 6 Open Evening.

    They performed so well and gave such a great account of their start at Sprowston Community High School. What a talented trio they are!

    Mr Setchell

  • It was good to meet with two Year 7 super-stars this morning: Asim Miah and Evie Dickerson have both gained over 10 achievement points already this term - a fantastic effort, well done!

    7LE are racing ahead with a whopping 119 achievement points so far - can any other form catch them....?

  • I met with the Year 7 students who have already been awarded six achievement points or more this term.

    This is an outstanding effort and shows what a great start these students have made to their time at our school. Well done!

    Mr Setchell

  • Looking back on the end of term awards assembly for Year 7, in which we celebrated the numerous achievements of the year group, and tutors and subject teachers nominated students for their efforts and attainment during the year.

    We were also lucky enough to witness some fantastic entertainment as Lauren, Rebecca, Megan, Elsie, Anya, Chloe-Jayne and Charlotte performed some songs for us. An extremely talented group of singers.

    Well done to last year's Year 7s, and good luck in Year 8. You made a great start to your time at Sprowston Community High School!

  • Congratulations to Year 7 mathematician Harriet for qualifying for the Pink Kangaroo award in the UKMT Maths Challenge.

    Who knows what she could achieve next year!
