Praise and Reward

At Comberton Sixth Form, we want our students to be proud of their achievements, both in terms of their academic progress and performance, but also, we recognise and value the many areas that students succeed in that go beyond their academic studies.

We reward students to recognise and appreciate their high standards of performance and have designed our praise and reward system to try and allow all students, regardless of their talent or ability to perform highly in one or more of the following categories;

  • Commitment and attitude to learning
  • All round achievement – outstanding overall academic performance
  • Academic progress
  • Attendance
  • Community participation (both in our enrichment programme and beyond)
  • Subject Awards (from staff nominations at the end of Year 13)

Sixth Form students are rewarded both formally and informally in several different ways. Students can receive emails from teaching staff and Heads of Subject along with postcards home and letters celebrating success from the Head of Sixth Form. 

In addition, and starting in 2019, Students who receive postcards and/or letters home from the Head of Sixth Form will be entered into a termly ‘prize draw’ and have the opportunity to win vouchers from a variety of organisations.

Head of sixth form David Clarke said: “Students have responded really well to this additional reward and appreciate the post cards being sent home”.
