There are those that might feel that ranking is inherently wrong. We have always said that every one of over 300 children in a year group can, and possibly should, be number one for effort. We can all try our hardest all of the time.
In 2002 when effort ranking was first introduced we thought it would have a massive positive impact on learning. This has proved to be the case:
Year 10 – 27 Students are No1 for Effort in the recent Year 10 Data Collection.
Also 9 of our students have risen in the Effort Ranking by over 100 places.
