Half Term "Catch-Up"

October half term is a wonderful opportunity to "catch-up" with


  • family and friends - the people who really matter to us.
  • reflection - on relationships and work to be done.
  • hobbies - activities that inspire and re-energise oneselves, juggling perhaps?


Whatever you intend to do ...


Be healthy!

Be happy!   and

Be safe!


Thanks to everyone for your terrific leadership and teamwork this half-term - students and adults working so well together and progress being made.



We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'

Pupil Premium: Information for Parents/Carers

Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools by the Government for certain groups of students.

As a school we are committed to the attainment and achievement of all students. However we recognise that some students are potentially more vulnerable than others and for this reason we are keen that the additional funds that we have been allocated are used strategically and pro-actively to narrow any gaps in achievement that may exist.
