House Achievement Points

What are HAPs?

Students can gain House Achievement Points in a number of ways including effort in lessons, sport, charity events, reading competition, full attendance, examination results, various department competitions, etc. Students can also gain house points if their uniform is consistently worn correctly. The efforts of individual students and groups of students in each house are recognised in an awards ceremony at the end of the Summer Term.

Students can regularly earn a range of points for their effort in lessons:

Good= 3 points, Very Good = 4 points, Outstanding = 5 points.

A similar scale applies to the quality of class and homework relative to their ability level. Students can earn special points awards for a variety of reasons e.g. Student of the Month (25 points), Commitment to a Club (25 points) or a range of bespoke points awards.

Each term a range of award certificates will be presented
