Awards Overview

From this page you can access Awards criteria, see who were our Top Scholars and also those students that have gained tertiary scholarships. Basically this is where to find out about awards, and how to achieve them.

Marsden Scholars' Awards

Our top performing students receive Scholars’ Awards which are divided into two categories:


  • scholars’ badges (to acknowledge excellence) and
  • scholars’ colours (to acknowledge outstanding achievement). A recipient may receive only one of these awards.


In 2021, the criteria for Scholars’ Awards is adjusted for qualifications gained in 2020. These adjustments are in line with those made by NZQA to acknowledge the disruption caused by Covid-19. The criteria below reflect those adjustments.


See the Scholars' Awards Criteria page for details.

Awards Evenings

Our sports and cultural awards evenings are held towards the end of the year to recognise the students who have achieved excellence in their chosen endeavours or have given outstanding service to Marsden’s co-curricular programme.
