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.

Head Teacher notes:

This half term's core value: Perseverance

Theme for this week (20-24 April): ‘Perseverance to finish the job’

The way in which our students think of those around the world who are less fortunate than us always amazes me. Our main overseas charity that we work with is ‘To Kenya with Love’ and we sponsor a number of students via this charity to attend school. This week we look forward to welcoming Chris Wheat who works for the charity and brings us an update on how ‘our’ students are doing. Last week Mrs Capjon’s assemblies highlighted the work of another charity based in London and we now have collecting boxes for any loose change in reception and the canteen.

On Tuesday we welcome back to the school Fran Williamson, six-time paralympic swimming medalist and five-time world champion for another inspirational assembly.
