Wirral's independent local news website
The clock is ticking for schools and colleges on the Wirral to get their entries in for the Educate Awards 2022, as entries close on Sunday 26 June at midnight.
Entries are open to all primary and secondary schools, academies and colleges across the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire. It is also open to independent private educational establishments, further education providers and special needs schools.
Founded by Kim O’Brien in 2012, it is the largest education awards in the North West and celebrates every aspect of schools, their teaching and staff.
From celebrating an innovative project a school has created to focus on specific members of staff, the awards recognise the hard work of schools and colleges which are delivering exceptional education and are helping pupils to achieve their full potential.
There are 21 categories in total and this year a brand-new category has been introduced – Business Manager of the Year. This award celebrates business managers who are delivering outstanding professional leadership and management of a school or college.
It should also be noted that the School Governor of the Year has been incorporated within the School Support Star of the Year category.
The awards are free to enter and submissions should be no more than 750 words and include a brief summary of what the entry is about. Schools and colleges can submit entries for as many categories as they like, as long as they are different.
Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said, “With the deadline for the Educate Awards fast approaching, schools and colleges should think about entering as soon as possible. We would hate for anybody to miss their chance of becoming an award-winning school.
“This will be the 11th year of this incredible ceremony and we look forward to celebrating the achievements of schools and colleges from around the region. Best of luck to those who are entering – we look forward to seeing you in November!”
