Each term a committee of Sixth Form pupils meets to award the School’s highest form of ‘colours’ – a ‘School First’. The committee members take their work seriously, for two main reasons: firstly, this is a good example of pupil power – while teachers may make nominations, it is only those ten or so Upper Sixth pupils sitting on the committee who have the power to vote; secondly, to retain the value of the ‘School First’, precious few are handed out.
Nowadays School Firsts have been split into two types: sporting and non-sporting. Below is a list of those pupils who have this term been given the coveted award for their exceptional contributions to School life across a wide spectrum of non-sporting activities.
