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: Wisdom


Theme for this week (25-29 April): ‘Inheriting a wisdom- applying values’


Congratulations to Mr Connelly, Mr Player and Mrs Holloway, our three ASHS marathon runners, for their incredible achievement on Sunday in London with all of them completing the course in under 4.5 hours. They have raised in excess of £9,500 for their respective charities. 



My thanks too to the Year 11 Drama students who are preparing their First World War dramas. Drama has always been one of our strengths and it was very clear to see why given the exceptional standard. Those Year 11's taking GCSE PE also need to feel proud as they performed in front of the external examiner on Friday who commented that "it was the highest standard that I have seen in the 4 years I have been examining at ASHS".


This week we look forward to having The Springs Dance Company with us in school performing to students in Years 7-9.

The skiers have returned safely after a brilliant week in Italy and I am grateful to Mr Most for leading the trip along with the help and support of Ms Rogerson, Mr Gould and Ms Woods.
Thanks to everyone who contributed so generously on the last day of half term. We raised over £270 for our overseas charity ‘To Kenya with Love’.
