The COBIS Student Achievement Awards give COBIS Schools the opportunity to recognise students’ outstanding achievements on a global scale. Each year COBIS Schools may nominate up to three students to receive an award.
Who can be nominated?
A Student Achievement Award may be presented to any student from a COBIS Member School in Key Stage 2, 3, 4 or 5.
Last year, 209 students from 83 COBIS Schools across the world were presented with a Student Achievement Award.
What achievements does the award recognise?
The award recognises outstanding individual achievements or contributions to an aspect of school or community life. Students can be nominated for the award for a number of reasons, including:
- Exceptional academic achievement
- Outstanding effort
- Commitment to a charitable cause/environmental sustainability
- Significant contribution to the wider life of the school
- A remarkable demonstration of compassion or kindness
Schools may also wish to nominate a student for another reason, in the context of local circumstances, not described above.
How can schools nominate students?
Nominations must be submitted by a member of staff from the student's school.
The nomination will include a citation of no more than 100 words, detailing the reasons for the nomination.
All nominations for Student Achievement Awards must be submitted before the deadline of 3pm (GMT) on Wednesday 1 April 2020.
To nominate a student from your school, please use the link below.
How do students receive their award?
A staff member from your school should collect the awards from a COBIS member of staff at our Annual Conference, in May 2020. If no one from your school is due to attend, an electronic copy of the certificate will be sent to the staff member that submitted the nomination in May 2020.
A list of award winners will be published on the COBIS website in April 2020.

COBIS would like to thank CPOMS for sponsoring the Student Achievement Awards in 2020.
CPOMS is a system for monitoring child protection, safeguarding, SEND and a range of pastoral and welfare issues. Staff are given appropriate levels of access to match their level of involvement with the relevant concerns. Using CPOMS, schools can ensure that students are safe and fully supported, whilst safeguarding leads and school staff can focus on teaching and providing support, instead of administration
