Sustainable Awards for Schools, Universities, Clubs & Businesses

Oak & Black is making its mark in creating beautiful and sustainable awards for schools, clubs and businesses. Trusted by many, we create a variety of oak award blocks and other sustainable award items that can be completely customised and used to recognise people for sports, academics, and for displaying positive values. Our commitment to sustainability is evident in the materials we use, as well as our alignment with the sustainability policies of the institutions we work with.

Our sustainable awards have become a popular choice for many schools and clubs, including Loretto School, Merchiston Castle School, George Watson's College, Fettes College, Latymer Upper School, Fettes Prep School, Edinburgh University, Exeter University, Jed-Forest RFC, Melrose RFC, The Watsonian Football Club, and Dundee Monarchs Hockey Club. These institutions trust us to create bespoke, high-quality awards that recognise the achievements of their students, athletes, and members while also aligning with their sustainability policies and positiver practices.

We are proud of the relationships we are developing and love seeing how different schools, universities, clubs and businesses use the awards to celebrate, acknowledge and inspire their people. Here are a few examples of this:

- End of season awards

- Weekly/termly awards - big one to hold temporarily and a small one to keep

- Tournament Trophy

- Academic prizes (for pupils to keep)

- Medals for tournaments

- Values awards (to acknowledge those who positively exhibit the institution's values)
