The students’ outstanding contributions to the school were recognised at an awards ceremony held on Tuesday 9 July, and each received a specially designed badge of honour, carrying the school’s new logo as Upton Court Grammar School. Principal Mercedes Hernandez Estrada said "these young people behave themselves with courage and honour at all times. They play an active role in the life of the school both academically and socially. I am very grateful for the contributions they continue to make to the life of the school. We are very lucky to have them in our midst.”
