The middle school diploma

The Middle School Diploma is awarded to pupils at the end of Year 9 on the basis of their achievement, progress and participation over three years (Years 7-9).

The objectives of the Diploma are:

  • to recognise achievement, progress and participation for pupils in Years 7 to 9.
  • to develop and encourage the traits of PPC: Purpose Passion and Challenge in our pupils.
  • to create a fitting moment of conclusion and transition for Year 9 pupils.

The diploma is individually presented at an awards event in the Summer Term of Year 9. The diploma is awarded at three levels: Maxima cum laude (the highest praise), Cum laude (with praise) and Pass. Pupils who do not meet all criteria of the Pass level will not receive an award.
