What is ‘UCAN’   

Our ethos is ‘enjoy, respect, achieve!’ and we want every student to become a ‘game-changer’ – confident students with amazing skills and powerful voices, with the ability to make the world better tomorrow than it is today.  In 2018 we introduced the ‘University of CAN’, or ‘U-CAN’ curriculum to provide amazing opportunities for our students, to develop confidence, learn new skills, grow aspiration and build character.

We also believe that providing our students opportunities to make their own choices in learning, to express themselves creatively, to connect to the outdoors and to focus on well-being, are fundamental to our approach to learning.



Term 1

Due to current government guidelines regarding safety in schools during COVID, we have moved our ‘UCAN’ programme online, called ‘Gamechanger’, we have constructed a broad curriculum for students to explore and engage with.

 How does it work?

We have put together and designed an amazing range of projects for students to take part in, including STEM challenges, outdoor adventure challenges, research projects focused on amazing people, well- being challenges including meditation and yoga, and a whole range of other opportunities.

  • UCAN / Gamechanger will happen on a Thursday afternoon.  It is compulsory for Years 7 and 8, and optional for Years 9-11.   Students leave the Academy earlier on Thursday, so will  need to complete at least one of the Gamechanger activities at home and email their work to gamechanger@cityacademnorwich.org when complete.
  • On completing and submitting UCAN/ Gamechanger work, students will be awarded achievement points.
