The Marsh Academy

Where people shine



Students are rewarded at the Marsh Academy for good attendance, academic performance and behaviour. Tutors, teachers, departments and mini schools award Epraise points to students which can be exchanged for goods and activities at the Marsh Reward Shop in IT at breaks and lunchtimes. Parents and carers can log in to the Epraise website to see the points awarded to their children and also their attendance data and timetables.


Good attendance, academic performance and behaviour is also rewarded through letters home, reward events and an annual Awards Ceremony for upper school students.


On this page you can find more details about how points are rewarded and the full terms and conditions for using the Marsh Reward Shop. Any questions regarding the shop can be sent here: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
