A reward for dedication, commitment and excellence within a specific sport.
What are School Sports colours?
School Sports Colours are awarded to pupils that represent the school on a regular basis. Pupils who represent the school at a higher level i.e. county, regional or national can expect to be awarded Full Colours. Colours can also be awarded for sports that are not covered within the schools extra curricular programme – these applications will be discussed within faculty meetings to ensure consistency and that the colours are not devalued in any way.
What is awarded to the pupils?
- The pupils will gain a certificate and an embroidered badge with silver lettering if they achieve half colours to be worn on the school blazer.
- The pupils will gain a certificate and an embroidered badge with gold lettering if they achieve full colours to be worn on the school blazer.
