Marshland High School – Core Values Hero Award
Students in KS3 at Marshland High School have the opportunity to achieve a special award; the Core Values Hero Award.

The scheme is intended over time to develop the School’s Core Values; respect, responsibility, kindness, honesty and perseverance. This will allow students to grow as individuals while contributing to their local community as well as giving students valuable life experiences that will run alongside their academic success. It will also give students many great experiences to discuss when on interviews for further education and employment.

The scheme has three levels that increase in difficulty, these are as follows:

Year 7

Bronze Hercules Award

Year 8

Silver Perseus Award

Year 9

Gold Atlanta Award

To achieve the award, students will be required to plan, complete and evaluate activities that show the School’s Core Value. Progress of the scheme will then be managed by the students using a logging booklet.

Students who complete the award will be invited along with their parents/carers to attend a special presentation evening in July to celebrate their achievements and receive their badges and certificates.
