ANI Badges & Shields

ANI has a badge & shield recognition system where we celebrate student achievement in academics and extracurriculars.

There Are 8 Badges On Offer And 8 Corresponding Shields. This Page Will Tell You All The Current Ways You Can Earn A Badge As An ANI Student. Two badges from the same category earn you a shield in that category (e.g. Two IB badges = an IB Shield).
Badges should be sewn on the left sleeve of a student’s hoodie or jumper and shields should be sewn on the right sleeve.
The school’s strategic leaders are your port of call on any badge questions or requests and they can be reached at

How to apply for a badge.

When you earn a badge or shield, you can apply using the ANI Badge & Shield Application Form. Your teacher will share this with you.

Each week the strategic leaders go through the applications and will deliver your badge to your teacher as soon as they can.
