It has been brilliant to see the number of Year 7 students enjoying the selection of clubs that have been on offer this term at Sharples. Over 30 clubs have been available to Year 7 including: STEM club, guitar club, debate club, astronomy club, Christmas cooking club, and art club to name a few. Each time a student attended a club they received a point that contributed towards their Sharples Baccalaureate award. To gain a Bronze award students needed 10 Bacc points, 15 points were needed for Silver and 20 points were needed for Gold. Commitment and attendance at clubs has been excellent over the last couple of months and this was evident during Friday’s assembly (pictured above and below) when the top 40 students with the most points were awarded their Gold certificate and badge. Usually, all Gold winners are presented with their award in assembly, however, this term 141 students reached the target of 20 Bacc points and to avoid the assembly running over into period 1, the remaining winners along with those receiving Silver and Bronze were given their certificates in form time on Monday! Overall, 90% of Year 7 students achieved at least a Bronze award this term. This is a fantastic achievement for all involved and we hope the momentum from this term carries over into the new year when a whole new selection of clubs will be on offer!
