How do you recognise achievement in the Senior School?

There are a variety of ways that senior pupils are recognised for their achievements.

Green Flags - in line with the Leweston Learner, subject teachers award ‘Green Flags’ when pupils demonstrate the required learning characteristics. Green Flags are also used to recognise contributions to our wider community. At the end of each term, Heads of Year nominate two pupils from Years 7, 8 and 9 to receive a Leweston Learner Award. This recognises their consistent application of the learning characteristics throughout the term.

Departmental Awards, Year 10 and above - at the end of each term, departments can nominate pupils in Years 10 or above to receive a Departmental Leweston Learner Award. These recognise a consistent and positive approach to learning throughout the term.

Head’s Commendations Years 10 to 13 - if a pupil produces a piece of work of exceptional merit it can be recommended to the Headmaster for a commendation. The Headmaster will meet with the pupil to offer the school’s congratulations and to record their name in the Head’s Commendation Book.

Speech Day Prizes - General prizes for academic achievement or progress are awarded for pupils in Years 7 to 10 at Speech Day at the end of the Summer term. For Years 11 to 13 there is a subject prize awarded by each Department.
