The girls’ football season has officially come to an end with another successful run in every competition entered. The U16 Girls were unlucky to come away with no trophies this year after reaching round five of the National Cup. Their performances deserved more and next season the team will be aiming for the Norfolk County double.
The U14 Girls finished their season in style by winning the County 5-a-side title. They also reached the Quarter Final of the National Cup and Semi Final of the County Cup. Next year some of the girls will step up to U16 level.
The U13 Girls’ team responded well to their National Cup 5th round defeat by going on to produce several brilliant performances after Christmas. They were crowned double County champions by winning the County 5-a-side finals with a 3-2 win over Cliff Park High School.
As a club the girls scored 99 goals this season, conceding 24 and played some very skilled football. For the sixteen girls travelling to the Youth World Cup in Sweden, their attention now switches to training and preparation for the Gothia Cup.
On Sunday 7 June 2015 the Music Department took a group of musicians to The Grove Cheshire Home at East Carleton to perform for the residents. The afternoon was very enjoyable with the band performing some popular songs and the choir singing songs from ‘Cats’ and ‘Oliver’.
We also had two of our GCSE students performing their ensemble piece on the clarinet and piano. The event was well received by the residents and it was great to see Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form students performing alongside other musicians from the area.
Thank you to all who took part.
The Year 10 Parent Consultation Evening will be held in the South Site Hall on Tuesday 9 June 2015 between 3.30pm and 5.45pm. I do hope you will be able to attend and support Andrew in what is, a very important period of his time at school.
Overleaf is an appointment sheet for Andrew to take to the teachers you would like to see so that they can enter an appointment time. Teachers will do their best to take account of the time period you have indicated.
Please bring Andrew with you as it will give you all the opportunity to discuss the progress being made, and how to make the best use of the time ahead in each subject.
On arrival, please register at the appropriate ‘House Desk’ in the dining area. The Hall will be arranged so that teachers are seated in alphabetical order.
Andrew’s current grades are available on ‘My Child At School’. If you would like to request a paper copy for collection on the evening, please contact the Data Office on 01603 497779.
As you know, we place great emphasis on parent/student opinion and, as such, would be grateful if you would take a few moments to complete the questionnaire and submit it at the desk before you leave
If you are travelling by car, please be considerate to our neighbours and use the Park and Stride sites.
We look forward to seeing you.

Well done to Olly Massingham who is currently ranked number 5 in the UK for discus.
At the County Athletics Championship at Kings Lynn on 23 May 2015, Olly also set a new Championship Record discus of 47.07 metres. This was a record that had stood since 1978 and Olly smashed it by nearly four metres.
This is due to Olly’s dedication as he trains at Thetford three times a week and dedicates many hours of his time to the training which has led to this success.
We look forward to following Olly’s successes at future events.
