Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Clubs and Activities
KS3 Reading Group
A fortnightly reading club is held in the library at lunchtime, which is open to all students in Years 7, 8 & 9. Over drinks and biscuits, we debate and discuss our thoughts and opinions on the books that we are reading as a group, and share our recommendations. It is a great way to meet students from other year groups who love reading and an opportunity to try different books and authors that you might not normally choose to read.
Carnegie Reading Group
The Carnegie Medal is an annual award given to an author for the most outstanding piece of children’s literature. Nominated by librarians, the short-listed titles are announced in March and the winner in late June.
Each year, alongside other schools across the country, we shadow the Carnegie Book Award by reading the short-listed titles prior to the announcement of the winner. We meet with other schools in the area to discuss and debate our thoughts on the books, play games and activities and vote for our favourite title.
