Subject Recognition Award

The Coleshill School prides itself on an innovative and personalised approach to talent development. Students thrive in a ‘culture of success’ whereby achievement and leadership is celebrated and highly encouraged. Our rewards system ensures that all students are recognised for their commitment to learning, making progress, leadership and going that extra mile.

This year we have introduced the Subject Recognition Award which identifies commitment and students that go above or beyond their teacher’s expectation.

Throughout the year award ceremonies will be held to celebrate the success of students’ achievements and a badge will be awarded for the student’s to attach to their blazers.

The diagram below indicates where we would expect the badges to be attached to the blazer:
