Achievement Certificates and Prizes

Some schools kept lists of examination results, medal records, honours books or large wall-mounted carved honours boards. Little recognition by means of personal mementoes was made of student’s academic, musical or athletic achievements before the 20th century and these are also more likely to be found in family collections, such as those below. To encourage regular attendance many schools offered attendance medals and certificates which can be found at home, but may also be recorded in a school register. It is worth perusing numismatic catalogues for any kinds of medals which have passed out of the family.
