Altiora Peto Medal

The Altiora Peto Medal is awarded to a living Old Boy who best reflects the school’s motto Altiora Peto – I seek higher things – and who will serve as a role model to the current boys of the school. The award is made at the Founders Day assembly in May and the recipient is invited to address the boys.
