Merit points for students

It is important that students' efforts and achievements are celebrated at TBS. This year, students In Key Stages Three and Four are able to gain two merit points for every lesson if their effort is high and their work is of excellent quality. Additionally, they can gain merit points for attending clubs and for their community contributions. Up to five special bonus points can be awarded for these activities.

Each week in assembly, Dr. Moore announces the previous weeks top five merit scoring students so that recognition is continually being given. Additionally, there is a Merit Point board displayed in Secondary where students who are achieving will have their names displayed. The aim of this is to motivate students across the Secondary school. Student council are deciding on prizes for weekly, termly and the yearly merit point top scorers. The student obtaining the most points will have their named engraved onto an award shield which will be displayed in school.
