The school recognises the achievement of pupils in curricular and extra curricular activities in various ways.
In S1 to S4 Certificates are given for meritorious work and effort and in S5 and S6 medals and book prizes are awarded. The pupil judged to be the most academically distinguished in S5 is awarded the Randolph Gold Medal, instituted in 1879.
A number of trophies and medals have been gifted over the years to commemorate former pupils or members of staff, or by local clubs or societies. The award of these not only marks the distinction gained by the pupil but honours the memory of past associates of the school and helps to maintain its traditions.
All these awards are presented at the Annual Prizegiving which takes place in June each year.
