A leavers’ yearbook isn’t just about remembering each other – it’s also about remembering your own, and other leavers’ achievements. How else are you going to prove your were the best [insert amazing skill here]?
Achievement pages differ a little to yearbook award pages in that they celebrate school-related achievements. These could be for sports, attendance, or extra curricular/out-of-school club achievements.
Now here’s something I don’t get to say (or write) very often – an achievements yearbook page is perfect for both primary and secondary leavers’ books! Let’s take a look at some achievement ideas for each…

Design ideas for achievements pages
I know I said before that these are different to awards pages and they are, content-wise. The design however can be very much the same. If you have an awards page already set-up in your yearbook – bingo! You have an Achievements page.
If you’re starting from scratch, don’t worry yourself with anything complex. The majority of your editing time is likely to be copy & paste (saving those brain cells).
To achieve a quick and easy design yourself:
- 1. Calculate how many achievements you need to fit per page
- 2. Add a picture box (this can be a circle, square, etc.)
- 3. Pop a text box underneath it (make sure you allow enough space for the achievement title, and student name)
Now select both elements and copy (ctrl + c) & paste (ctrl + v) them and arrange them in a grid on your page. If you’re using Yearbook Creator software, this template is already set up for you!
