Non-uniform Day Friday 17 December - WaterAid

We focus our attention today on the real basics and the importance of having fresh water to live our lives, and those less fortunate than ourselves.

Be generous to this worthy cause.

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.'
