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.
At Reepham High School & College we work hard to try and make what we do as relevant as possible to the world of work.
Within lessons teachers consciously attempt to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that employers want. The timetable is regularly collapsed for “Careers Days” when pupils work together in groups to solve real world problems. All pupils have the opportunity to get involved in extra curricular enterprise activities.Within this broad context every pupil also benefits from receiving high quality careers education.
The intention is to enable our pupils to make informed choices and to develop their work related knowledge and skills. Careers education is delivered through:
