Mr Cranmer


Welcome to ASHS:   

It is a great pleasure to introduce you to our school website and hope you find in it all the information that you need. Possibly the greatest strength of the school is its friendly atmosphere and sense of community.

We are proud of our well-deserved high reputation as the only Church of England VA High School in East Anglia. Archbishop Sancroft has become an increasingly popular choice amongst parents due to:

  • Our comparatively small size which means we really can offer Christian child-centred education
  • Our focus on developing the whole person - physical, social, moral and spiritual

The school’s Mission Statement, bringing together both spiritual and educational goals, sets out the aims to which all who work in the school aspire:

Our Mission

In keeping with our Christian values, the School Staff, Students, Parents and Governors, will work together to encourage a real enthusiasm for learning and pride in our school.

As a team, we aim to offer education which is challenging, informing, exciting and enjoyable. We will have succeeded if everyone is given the chance to achieve the best results possible, and is equipped with life skills and experience for their future.

Our Core Values

  • Truthfulness*
  • Humility*
  • Justice*
  • Hope*
  • Perseverence*
  • Creativity*
* These core values will be our focus for this academic year 2014 - 2015.

Theme for this week (26-30 January): ‘Including others’

Last week at ASHS was very special indeed. Two events in particular will stay with me for a very long time and sum up for me why we have such a great school. On Tuesday Mr Connelly set a challenge to Years 10 & 11 based on the phrase ‘#ASHS deeds not words’ and you can see on twitter what happened next! 

On Friday Mr Player invited the amazing 5X world champion, 6X paralympic swimmer Fran Williamson into school to take an assembly and to launch the Year 10 ‘Raising your game’ challenge. My thanks go to Fran for making a huge impact on the ASHS community.

Events this week:

•           Monday – Peacejam at 1.15pm and Canoeing Club at 3.30pm

•           Tuesday – Year 11 Maths exam, Homework Club at 3.30pm in the library, U12 Netball tournament at Hobart

•           Wednesday – Rugby Club at 3.30pm

•           Thursday – Year 9 to Gressenhall History trip, Table Tennis Club at lunchtime

Advance notice:
