EATL rewards

Well done to the nine hardworking young men who were recently rewarded for their high EATL (Effort and Attitude to Learning) scores.

The FHS rewards system aims to inspire a positive attitude to learning and encourage positive classroom behaviour. Effort and attitude is tracked and points are awarded in every class.

Points are averaged over the weeks, the terms and then finally the year. All pupils achieving a target threshold of 75% or over receive a reward.

The boys were given the choice between two overnight trips as a reward for their continued hard work.

Five of them opted for Scarefest at Alton Towers.

The group stayed overnight in the rural village of Cauldon Lowe. The next morning after a quick breakfast they headed off for Alton Towers.

According to Mr. Bryson, who accompanied them, it was a spine-tingling event!

He commented: “The boys and Miss Findlay were very brave, participating in all the rides, but I did have to wonder if we are an all-boys school as there was a lot of high pitched screaming being heard during the rides and attractions.”

The other four boys chose an overnight outing to Manchester to watch the UEFA Champions League tie between Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk, which ended in a draw. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the experience of visiting a big stadium.

Mr Gannon, who accompanied the boys on the trip, reported that they were all great company and represented themselves and the school excellently.

Keep up the good work, boys!
