As a school we encourage students to develop compassion, courage, creativity and curiosity – our new House mottos – and in the last week of term we have been delighted to recognise and celebrate all forms of student success and achievements in a series of memorable Celebration Assemblies for Years 7 to 10.
Gold Awards were awarded to students with a score of at least 45 out of 50 on the new Personal Scorecards system. These students have demonstrated exceptional attitude to learning, attendance, punctuality and uniform and have collected more house points than most other students in their year group. Each winner received a certificate and a shiny new badge to be worn with pride.
Subject teachers nominated two students from each year group to receive an award for demonstrating exemplary levels of ‘Curiosity’ and ‘ Courage’ in their lessons.
Tutors were proud to acknowledge two students each who frequently demonstrate ‘Compassion and Good Character’ in the Tutor group. It was very moving to hear the tutors tell the students and parents in the audience why they stand out as someone who is turning into a great person, who we can all admire.
At the end of each Celebration Assembly, Heads of Year announced winners of their ‘Special Recognition’ awards. These awards were given to students who have particularly impressed and inspired their Head of Year and PSA since September.
And Years 11 to 13? Year 11 were served a breakfast at the Mock Results Day on December 12th and we have a special treat lined up for them on the very last day that rewards them for their hard work. As for the Sixth Formers, they enjoyed a Winter Ball on the evening of the very last day of term at The Cotswolds Hotel.
