Academy Awards Scheme

What are Academy Colours?

 Academy Colours are special awards presented to qualifying Sixth Form students in year 13. To qualify for this prestigious award Sixth Form students are required to demonstrate a number of qualities that go beyond the normal commitments of being a student. Students must also be able to demonstrate the highest standards of commitment to their courses through excellent levels of attendance and punctuality.

Why should I aim to achieve my Academy Colours?

Achieving Academy Colours demonstrates dedication above and beyond the normal commitment of a student, making you ‘stand out from the crowd’ and supporting your applications to universities, training providers and employers. Working towards your successful application will also help you develop as a person in terms of self-confidence, personal drive and initiative.

If you achieve Academy Colours, you will be invited to the Academy’s Celebration Evening in the December of Y13 when you will be presented with the prestigious Academy Colours scarf.
