After 33 years with us students and staff say a fond farewell to Mrs Waters one of our favourite and most long serving members of staff. Students presented her with a long service medal - which she has certainly earned. We wish her a long and fun filled retirement!
Raspberries, lettuce, tomatoes and runner beans are amongst the produce from the student garden this summer. After much hard work – what a great reward! Truly a great effort by our ‘green fingered’ Iceni Class.
Whilst temperatures soared; voices soared higher in our Academy Summer Showcase. Students from all year groups demonstrated their talents on stage in front of a full audience of supporters, friends and family members.
This fantastic evening hosted by the Creative Arts Faculty proved a hit with all who came to support, and the talent was outstanding.
This is actually a carefully controlled experiment - lighting methane bubbles in the hands of one our our teachers - demonstrating combustion and convection.
DEFINATELY NOT TO BE TRIED AT HOME!
Respecting diversity was the aim of students who created a 'Diversi-tree' helping develop and understand shared principles and values. They drew around their own hands and wrote characteristics about themselves resulting in a celebration of their differences!
The evening sun shone on the arrivals at the TNHA Prom on Friday 12th July in the picturesque setting of Lynford Hall. Vintage cars, sports cars, lorries and even an ambulance brought our special guests to their special evening of celebrations. There were some very beautiful dresses and smart suits (including one rather amazing version of powder blue and pineapples – which is certain to be remembered!)
Students had a great time, dancing late into the evening and crowning their Prom King & Queen. We wish them well as they move on with the next phase of their young lives. What a lovely way to celebrate the end of their studies at TNHA!
‘Zipping’ across zip lines, balancing on low ropes, skilfully stacking crates and navigating an obstacle course, were just some of the activities that students tackled enthusiastically during their trip to the Hautbois centre in Coltishall.
Each activity offered different challenges, encouraging participants to use a variety of physical and mental skills to achieve their potential.
Using teamwork, they called upon their resilience and communication abilities (amongst much fun and laughter!).
GCSE Geographers visited Overstrand to complete fieldwork studies concentrating on the impact of the coastal process on coastal management and the community.
Students considered the beach profile, sediment analysis and wave movement to gain insight into the process. Local residential and tourists were also interviewed to see how they were affected and how much they were aware of coastal management being undertaken to protect the shoreline..

We are proud to sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant, especially with our local links to RAF Marham, pledging our support of all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces of the Crown and their Families.
Quote from the covenant :-
“Families also play a vital role in supporting the operational effectiveness of our Armed Forces. In return, the whole nation has a moral obligation to the members of the Naval Service, the Army and the Royal Air Force, together with their families. They deserve our respect and support, and fair treatment.
This obligation involves the whole of society: it includes voluntary and charitable bodies, private organisations, and the actions of individuals in supporting the Armed Forces. Recognising those who have performed military duty unites the country and demonstrates the value of their contribution. This has no greater expression than in upholding this Covenant”
