Our reward system encourages pupils to work hard and make a full contribution to our school community. Our school has a wide range of rewards but some of the most important include:
Yellow Tickets: Are awarded to recognise improvement as well as achievement in academic work.
Blue Tickets: Are awarded to recognise service to others, particularly when that service is beyond what would routinely be expected. Prizes are awarded by the Headmaster to pupils who win significant numbers of Blue Tickets and Yellow Tickets.
House System: We highly value our house system as a means to motivate and rewards pupils for their academic, extra curricular and community achievements. The house points system is highly competitive and achievements are celebrated in monthly whole school assemblies, special end of term assemblies and ultimately on our annual Graduation and Speech Day.
