Our Thirst for Learning campaign rewards students who show an exemplary attitude and take responsibility for their own learning. See our rewards news stories.
Students win points for arriving in lessons with the equipment they need to learn (the so called ‘Magnificent Seven’ of reading book, pen, pencil, ruler, homework booklet, pencil case and Harris bag), and showing a passion and desire for learning.
Points are exchanged for trips at the end of each half term. Trips are chosen by students and could include paintballing, rock climbing, and swimming in a giant pool with massive slides. There are three levels (bronze trips require 1400 points, silver trips require 1700 points and gold trips require 2000 points).
Student of the Week
Staff will also nominate around ten students each week who have shown an absolutely exemplary attitude to join a Principal's Breakfast. The breakfast is led by Mr Everritt, with each student receiving a certificate and gift voucher.
The idea is to recognise and reward the vast majority of our students who behave extremely well. As an Academy we passionately believe in the importance of preparing our students academically, but also ensuring that they have the social skills to be able to contribute to society.
Reward… Free breakfast on Fridays, with gift voucher and certificate.
Golden Dinner Pass
Once a week the Principal will hand out a Golden Dinner Pass to a student who he feels has been impeccable with their uniform and equipment, including while travelling to and from the Academy. This pass will give that student a free lunch for five days and VIP entry to lunch. They will also receive an invite to the Principal's breakfast, which includes a gift voucher.
To stand a chance of getting the Golden Dinner Pass students must have:
shirts tucked in all the time
tie done up so you cannot see top button
five stripes showing on the tie, not including knot
no uniform violations for the week.
