Recognising Achievement

The school has a strong reputation for recognising achievement in all its forms.  In order to encourage further improvement the school makes annual awards for work, progress and attainment.


In all areas of school life students are regularly praised for their efforts and achievements. These achievements whether for academic or personal success, good attendance, or community service, carry a points score, and build towards a Larkmead Certificate which is awarded at the end of each year at Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Students are also rewarded more frequently with certificates (Years 7 & 8) and with the chance to win vouchers (Years 9, 10 & 11). We also encourage students and parents to share with us their achievements and successes out of school. Student achievements are regularly celebrated in year group assemblies which take place each week and in the whole school assembly at the end of every term.

Students individual and team success are also celebrated in our termly whole school assemblies.
