We are passionate as a school, to celebrate success in all of its forms and guises. From the very beginning of Year 7, students are rewarded for the quality of their work, effort, excellent attitude, good attendance and punctuality. We believe this encourages students to try their very best in all they do and promotes good habits that will be essential for the work place. The top 5% of each year group who have gained the most smilies and no negatives in a week are recognised by a text message being sent home to thier parents to celebrate this success.
As students move through the school, the nature of the reward changes but always underpins our central belief that effort and application deserve recognition. We are also keen to reward those students that make a significant and positive contribution to the life and reputation of the school. In any year group, this recognition can be demonstrated by the award of an Honours Tie.
The awarding of an Honours Tie conveys to other students in school the positive role models we have in our community. This is further enhanced, in Year 11, when students apply to become Prefects and take on a role of leadership and responsibility within the school. The ultimate goal for any of our students is to be appointed as a Head Student.
The application process itself is rigorous and each year the Head of Year and members of the Leadership Team have to make the agonising decision as to who, from such a range of worthy applicants, is successful.
The pinnacle of our rewards system has to be our annual Celebration of Achievement Evening, which provides us with an opportunity to showcase to parents and special guests the wide array of successes that have been recognised throughout the course of the year. Earning prizes for academic excellence, sporting prowess and services to the school, there really is opportunity for everyone to be recognised, no matter what their strengths.
