Important Dates

  25th February – Students return to school


Year 11 Valentines Roses fundraising


Students from year 8 to 11 celebrated valentines yesterday by sending 88 roses to each other. Proceeds raised support the end of year prom for Year 11s. I would like to thank Bluebells the florist, in Downham Market, for supporting the event for the second year running. It brings a wonderful feel to the Academy with the excitement of flowers being delivered to students in lesson and mystery of who the sending actually was.


Parents/Carers SEND provision survey


Norfolk County Council and partners are working to improve support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities across the County and are looking for parent insight in to the Norfolk Local Offer.
