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

  • Friendship*
  • Peace*
  • Consideration/Respect/Reverence*
  • Forgiveness*
  • Wisdom*
  • Thankfulness*
* These core values will be our focus for this academic year 2015 - 2016.

Head Teacher notes:

This half term's core value: Compassion

Theme for this week (8-12 February): ‘Compassion for the world’

It was a pleasure to have the Harleston and District Business Forum in school last week for their monthly breakfast meeting. Particularly exciting to hear of their enthusiasm to run again the Year 8 careers morning, help with Year 10 Work Experience placements and support the whole school numeracy day in the summer. We are very appreciative of all that this relationship brings to the school for it is vital that our students have a really good understanding of the ‘real life’ world of business and opportunities beyond education. My thanks too to Kevin Parsons and Councillor Martin Wilby for their very positive feedback following their tour of lessons after breakfast.

Events this week:

•   Monday - Board games/card games club in the library after school, Canoeing Club after school

•   Tuesday - Homework Club at 3.20-4.30 pm in the library, Athletics Club in the gym

•   Thursday- Gymnastics/ Parkour Club in the gym

•   Friday- ‘Active Friday’ club for all students after school. Non uniform day for our charity ‘To Kenya with Love’. School closes for the half term break.
