Parent/Carer Handbook: Merits

Each week we feature guidance and information for our parents/carers taken from our Parent/Carer Handbook. This week:


All students can earn merits as well as weekly and termly awards for good behaviour, excellent effort or attainment, attendance, or reading. These merits then translate into prizes for individual achievements as well as awards for top attaining Houses, tutor groups and year groups. Achievements are celebrated in assemblies and communicated home via positive postcards and The City Times.

The academy empowers polite, conscientious, disciplined and successful students who want to achieve. All members of the community know they are valued and can work, learn, and teach without inappropriate disruption. Students must respect one another, respect the property of others and the environment, and follow the academy rules.

For more information, please refer to the Parent/Carer Handbook.
