HONOURS AND COLOURS

The ethos of the school promotes commitment to excellence in academic endeavours, sports and sportsmanship & cultural activities.

The CGB Colours and Honours system promotes and recognises excellence and achievement from our students. This recognition is not a “one off” acknowledgement but rather an award that has been earned by the candidate that will be permanently bestowed on them. This special award takes three forms (half-colours, full colours and honours), which once earned, is retained by the student for the remainder of their time at CGB. These awards are applicable in Key Stage Two and Secondary only.

For all three awards, the nature of the acknowledgement will be identified by pins to be worn on the school blazer (secondary) and on the school jersey (primary). The pin will have lettering showing the level of award and in which facet it was given, e.g. academics, rugby, chess, music, ballet, drama, football etc.
