At our annual Awards Evening, held each Autumn, subject prizes are presented to the students who achieved the highest result in their year group in the internal end-of-year examination whilst in Years 6-8 in the preceding academic year. Subject commendations are presented to students who placed second in each subject. In the event of a tie, or for subjects which did not hold end-of-year examinations, formal assessment results are compared in reverse chronological order until a winner was identified. However, in Physical Education, the full skills rotation is considered. In the unlikely event of equal marks across all formal assessments, the subject team considers other differentiating factors. Subject prizes and commendations are also awarded to Year 11-13 students at our annual Festival of Achievement and Graduation Ceremony, held each April, and are based upon their performance in their mock and midyear examinations.
