The Northampton Laureate

On leaving the Sixth Form, Northampton High School students will have demonstrated academic independence, intellectual creativity and leadership ability. This is recognised by the award of at least one of five Laureates, Gold, Red, Green, Purple and Blue. The Laureate Programme is endorsed by the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce.

GOLD for Intellectual Excellence

The academic is augmented by the Extended Project Qualification and General Studies AS-level; students may have been offered places at World Class Universities and shown commitment through voluntary activities.

RED for Sporting Excellence

The academic is complemented by the Community Sports Leadership Award, an excellent contribution to the sporting achievements of the school and support of other sports projects in or out of school.

GREEN for Community Excellence

The academic is enhanced by enrichment activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold or Silver Award and other community projects linking the student to the community and the environment.

PURPLE for Artistic Excellence

The academic is deepened by musical, artistic or dramatic enrichment activities, such as Grade Eight awards and involvement in major events, as well as support of school and community Arts projects.

BLUE for Excellence

The academic is developed through a commitment to the wider life of the school including supporting younger learners and playing a key role in House activities.
