Celebrating 80 years at Carrow Road!

Being a big NC fan, it's amazing to find out football has been played at Carrow Road for 80 years.

There is always a sense of hope, anticipation and excitement every time our current team plays.

Remember, it's not the building that matters, it's the passion of the fans that matters the most.  It's the same here at our school - make today a winning day!


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.'
