A high school which is today launching a consultation on becoming an academy has announced the date of a meeting with parents and the wider community about the plans.
The Evening News last week revealed that Sprowston High School is planning to become an academy, sponsored by the Right for Success Trust, which is based at Eaton Hall Specialist Academy, and is currently in the process of taking over Sewell Park College.
Ofsted inspectors last month said the school 'requires improvement'.
Now, headteacher Andrew John has written on the school's website that a meeting with parents and the community will be held at the school at 6pm on Wednesday, July 8.
Mr John wrote: 'This meeting will provide an opportunity for you to ask questions and make comments. Representatives from Right for Success and the governing body will be there to meet you.'
