Students in years 7, 8 and 9 are encouraged to take involve themselves in the Pixl programme. Pixl is a series of awards at three levels which are designed to empower students with the attitudes and attributes essential for employability and life. During the course of the academic year, students follow an online platform through a series of accredited tasks and activities (including target-setting and self-reflection) enabling them to gradually enhance their skills and abilities and we have been amazed and impressed by the huge range of activities our students undertake alongside their academic curriculum.
Apprentice, Pioneer and Graduate level awards were presented to 169 students who completed one – and sometimes two – of the levels during the 2018-2019 academic year during the end of term celebration assemblies on Friday 19th July. We were very fortunate to welcome into school Mrs Fay Ivens representing the Shipston on Stour Rotary Club who very kindly sponsor the award in school to present the certificates and badges to the students. Once again the school would like to express its thanks and gratitude to the members of the Shipston on Stour Rotary Club for their very generous sponsorship of this annual event.
