Celebrating achievement

Our annual Sports Awards event is where pupils’ contributions to the school and beyond are recognised including “Player of the Season” and “Most Improved Player of the Season” in each sport.

There are also some other, more prestigious awards, one of which is “Full Colours” and the much coveted “colours tie” is subsequently worn proudly around the school.

In addition to full/half colours there is a Head’s Award, which recognises pupils’ International Sporting Honours, and the highest award of all, the Head of Physical Education Cup, which recognises the highest level of contribution and performance across multiple sports.
