Headmaster's Awards & Distinctions

Awards & Distinctions

Throughout the Quarter, the Headmaster awards prizes to pupils who have been given a Distinction by a teacher for an outstanding piece of work.

The Greyhound Awards and other special named prizes are awarded to pupils at the end of each Quarter for their contribution and achievements.

Distinctions can be awarded for a single piece of work that is of a standard that could be published on the website and something that goes beyond the standard that would be anticipated by a pupil of that age.
