All nominations should be made in confidence; the nominee should not be told that they have been nominated.

Awarding Process

Once nominations close, a shortlist of nominees will be drawn up by an awarding committee comprising the Master of the College, a College Governor (OA), representatives of the Old Alleynian Association, the College Senior Prefect body and the Development Office.

Shortlisted nominees will then be contacted to confirm that they are happy to be proposed as a candidate for the awards. The shortlist will not be made public.

By consenting to nomination, the award winners are also consenting to take part in the College’s publicity activities relating to the awards.

The winners of the two awards, will be announced at the end of the Summer Term and honoured at two special school assemblies early in Michaelmas Term.

Each recipient will receive an OAA Medal.
