At Fitzharrys, we look for every opportunity to praise progress and reward achievement, not only academically but across every area of learning and personal development. This is of vital importance in growing every student’s confidence in their own abilities and encouraging further success.
Students in years 7-11 are awarded house points for their effort and achievement in and out of class, as well as their contribution to the community and participation in events. Students achieve bronze, silver, gold and platinum certificates as individuals. They work in teams for many different competitions and at Sports Day, where the healthy House rivalry and support cheers everyone along.
We are proud of our students and proud of our special achievement assemblies at the end of each full term. We celebrate all the great things that have happened, recognise everyone who has received subject award nominations and hand out many special achievement award certificates to those who have made excellent progress or produced exceptional work. Many students will receive their 100% attendance awards alongside a prize to reward their commitment.
Students also work towards Fitzharrys awards. These consist of Community, Cultural, School and Sport awards where students earn a special badge for completing a series of challenges. When a student achieves all four awards they are then awarded the special Full School Colours tie and earn their place on our Honour Boards in the Main Hall.
Our subject awards are given out once a year at our annual Presentation Evening and reward exceptional performance in a subject area or an area of school life. The Headteacher’s commendations are given out throughout the year for exceptional contribution to any aspect of school life.
