Double Housepoint Days
On the final day of lessons in each school week (usually Thursday) double housepoints are awarded. This means that four points, instead of two, will be awarded in each lesson that day. At least one of the four points will be for achievement and at least one will be for attitude. Points arising from assessment lessons, competitions, other special reasons or which are given on a discretionary basis (as detailed below) are not doubled.
Housepoints are not awarded during any lesson that is devoted entirely to formal assessment. Instead, the two points for that lesson will be carried over to the lesson in which the test results are issued. The top performing student will receive the achievement point and the student who has secured the greatest improvement or otherwise demonstrated the most effort will receive the attitude point.
Behaviour points are subtracted from positive housepoint totals, to obtain the net points for each student. So, for example, a student who receives 65 housepoints but also receives 10 behaviour points has 55 net points (Bronze Award), not 65 (Silver Award).
