Tom has just been awarded a Full Blue, the highest honour that may be bestowed on a Cambridge athlete, and is a much-coveted and prestigious prize. Athletes at the University of Cambridge may be awarded a Full Blue (or simply a Blue), Half Blue, First Team Colours or Second Team Colours for competing at the highest level of university sport, which must include being in a Varsity match or race against the University of Oxford. In general, the Full Blue standard is approximately that of being successful at a national level of student competition, and the Half Blue standard is that of being successful at county or regional level.
 
Lucy Jupp, Head of Fencing, Truro School was delighted to hear the news and said:

This wonderful accolade is so befitting of our former pupil, Tom Harvey. Fencing was such a big part of Tom’s life whilst he was at Truro School and he has continued his dedication to the sport by being President of the University of Cambridge fencing team. He has been a fantastic ambassador for the sport; highly motivated and enthusiastic and I am thrilled for him with being awarded his Full Blue. It is thoroughly well deserved. Congratulations Tom from all of us at Truro School.
