Learning mentors have the opportunity to nominate pupils based on their academic achievement, community involvement, contribution to school life and extra-curricular activities.
The following pupils received a black tie in the latest round:
Franklin: Georgia Bishop, Sophie Stokes and Claudia Barr
Da Vinci: Bree Streather, Reece Trigg, Adam Smith and Myles Tew
Hawking: Jess Mutton, Dylan Birk and Sacha Case
Socrates: Liberty Luck and Martha Reynolds

Pupils who are nominated but are unsuccessful in their applications are given feedback as to what they could do to receive a black tie next time round.

Dylan added: "It makes you feel proud because you've worked hard. It's nice to be recognised."
