Congratulations to the above pupils from Canaries Class. As a group, they not only beat the competition from their own class but from lots of different Year 5 classes across Norfolk. As a school, we signed up for a county wide competition lead by the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk. It was a six-week project aimed at primary school pupils. The challenge was for each class to plan, design and build their own prototype based on green technology that would improve the climate of their local town for the future. The judges said Canaries Class won based on their collaboration, effort and most importantly, their understanding of green technology!
This is an extremely impressive result and the children have won prizes for the school and themselves. Once again, congratulations to Mrs Bussy, Mrs Gosling, all the children in Canaries Class and the above 5 pupils for winning the overall competition! We are all very proud of you.
Congratulations to our first cake raffle winner this week. We hope you enjoy your seriously chocolatey cake! Thank you for our cake donation.

A "trusted, respected and loved part of the local community.” Ofsted has published its report on the inspection of Eastgate Academy on 11th and 12th May 2023, with the academy once again judged to be Outstanding. Eastgate Academy is a valued member of Eastern Multi Academy Trust. Paul Shanks, Chief Executive, said: “We are thrilled for the children, staff and parents of Eastgate Academy that Ofsted has recognised the school as outstanding once again. The academy has a culture of ambition and is an important hub for the whole community. We are particularly pleased that Ofsted recognised the academy’s exceptional work with our families. We are proud of all of our children, colleagues and families who work so hard to make Eastgate the amazing school that it is.” The report recognised the pupils’ highly positive attitudes to learning, commenting that, “The more they know the more they want to know. They are inquisitive. They ask their teachers questions about what they have learned. They complete tasks with care and pride.” Principal Linda Hothersall commented, “It is a great achievement for the whole Eastgate community to continue to be Outstanding. Our Ofsted inspector stated that “The children don’t see differences they just see friends” which shows the care and respect that children and adults have for each other at Eastgate Academy. I believe that this, alongside our ambition to ensure that all children will achieve, makes this school the special place that it is.”
