Rewards and Standards
The academy operates an electronic rewards system called vivo, where good work, effort, excellent attendance and punctuality and achievement will be rewarded.
These points add up and prizes can be claimed from a wide variety of choices from an on-line "shop". Students can spend their points on prizes as they go along or can save them up for the bigger rewards.
Each year, the Academy runs a Celebration Awards Evening, usually a themed event such as The Oscars.
Year 11 students participate in the Graduation Programme which recognises their efforts in preparing for their final examinations and there is an annual ceremony where they can graduate with merit or distinction, depending on their effort and achievements. Only graduating students are allowed to attend the Year 11 Prom, so graduation is seen as very important by the whole community.
