Hundreds of Strode’s students turned out in force to be commended again for achieving 100% attendance. Attending every single lesson on their timetable and demonstrating outstanding commitment to their studies.
College Principal Anne Fielding Smith said, ‘This is more fantastic news and that there is a proven link between levels of attendance at College and exam success. We know, for example, that as attendance goes up, grades also increase which is brilliant news for students and for the College.
All of the 100% attendance students were invited to celebrate their achievement and were placed into a prize draw. Anne Fielding Smith then drew the winning tickets and presented the lucky winners with £10.00 Amazon vouchers. Our congratulations go to Gina Cook, Robert Ellis, Peter Gerbert, Rosalind Hext, Maisie Marshall, Jessica Page, Oliver Phillips, Adam Wheeler, Zachary Wreford
These celebrations of great attendance will take place every half term until the end of the year as a spur to all students to attend every class. There will be significant prizes at the end of the academic year for students who have 100% attendance since the start of the year including an ipad mini. To incentivise other students to continue to improve their attendance, the clock will start again giving everyone a new opportunity to aim for 100% over the next half term until Easter and receive a prize. At the end of the year prizes will also be awarded to the classes, and the teacher of the winning classes, with the best attendance.
