At Williamwood, we recognise a wide variety of pupil achievements, both within and out with school.  We celebrate achievement in a variety of different ways such as at weekly year group assemblies, our ‘walls of achievement’, the school and departmental websites, twitter, S3 BGE ceremony, departmental noticeboards and through pupil profiles.  We also organise and participate in a wide variety of formal awards for achievement such as the Diana Award, Duke of Edinburgh, John Muir Award, Saltire Awards etc…

A copy of our school policy on achievement can be viewed here.


A presentation by Miss Ferguson (DHT) which details some of the different types of achievements which are recognised at Williamwood, as well as the ways in which we celebrate the achievements of our pupils, can be viewed here.


Inform us about achievements:

As a large school, sometimes we are not aware of all of the fantastic achievements which take place.  Therefore, we would also like to encourage both parents/carers and pupils to inform us of any achievements by completing the form here.

If possible, please provide a photograph or any other media to the school via the school email system.


Departmental Achievement:

Within the school, there are several departments who recognise achievements within their specific subject areas.  Each subject area has a specific set of criteria for pupils to be formally recognised using a variety of methods such as certificates, badges, half colours and full colours.  Each department recognises pupil achievement in different ways. Pupils are aware of the criteria requirements and they can also be found below:

Endeavour Award:

All S1 – S5 pupils at Williamwood High School also have the opportunity to achieve an endeavour award which is presented at the annual junior and senior awards ceremonies.  This award is based on a pupil’s effort and behaviour throughout the year.  In order to achieve an endeavour award, pupils must achieve an ‘excellent’ grade for all of their subjects in both their tracking report(s) and full school report.  Pupils are permitted to have one grade which is lower that ‘excellent’ on one occasion in order to achieve an endeavour award.
