Following on from our hugely successful Open Evening, families are invited to visit us for a guided student tour.  If prospective families can't make a visit this week, please contact the office to arrange a time.

 

We all look forward to welcoming you to our great school.

 

 

 

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.'
