You demonstrate PRIDE in every way possible, whether it be your personal presentation, the quality of work you complete or the way

all of us conduct ourselves.

To us, you demonstrate the characteristics of a lion, a proud animal that works collaboratively in a “pride” (group). To be proud is to do

the very best you can do, recognise how good it is, and feel a sense of achievement. However, even though pride is a wonderful

attribute to have, you should always be proud of what you have done but then, reflect on this and be determined to do it even better

next time.


You show determination to never give up on things, you arrive on time, you come in, you keep going and you do it so well. You try your

hardest, you will do your best, you will not give up - that’s determination, and that’s what we respect!

To truly show how determined you are, you make it clear to all that only the best will do for you any and every member of our

community. We should never forget the year of 2020 in particular (COVID). It was during this year that the entire world

demonstrated how critical an attribute determination is - as part of this, our resilience and effort to succeed in every area of human

life became critical to our personal future, the future of nations... indeed, the future of the planet.


You demonstrate STRENGTH, this is strength in character, your resolve and ability to be the best version of yourself achieving

personal success while looking out for friends and being there for others. In showing determination in all you do, you show the world

how strong you really are.

You have shown the staff and I just how strong you can be. You have shown strength as individuals and as a group.

Through this strength, you have helped to change this school.

You are strong for friends and your family, standing up for what you believe in, standing up for those you care about and learning to

use your voice in lessons and around school to help us make Norham High School even better for the whole community.
