Is your school reaching for the top? Then tell us your story.......

Now in their 12th year, the Education Business Awards recognise schools across the UK for improving the standard of education and the life chances of their students, highlighting the vital work of educational professionals up and down the country.

Entering the awards is free of charge to schools from all sectors. As well as outstanding academic achievements in Primary, Secondary and Independent schools, the awards continue to examine school business practices (Procurement, Recruitment) as well as facilities management (Parking Management, Health & Safety, Security, Building, ICT Facility, Catering).

Schools are recognised for the quality of their Educational Visits programmes, as well as their Environmental Practices. The Academy Partnership and Community Awards look at how schools partner with other organisations to further their pupils’ learning experience.

The vital work of the Special Educational Needs sector is also recognised through the SEN Inclusion and SEN Provision awards, while schools will be shortlisted for ICT Innovation, Music, Art & Craft, STEM and Sports activities.

Tell us your story - enter online, free of charge.

To enter the awards, simply describe your practices to us in a 500 word entry statement. Supporting evidence, such as images, video or presentation, can also be uploaded through the online form.

There’s no charge to enter your school, and should your project be shortlisted for an award, you will receive tickets to attend the champagne drinks reception and awards luncheon, which takes place on July 4th at the Grange Hotel, London.


Testimonials

"The Education Business Awards provide a fantastic opportunity to endorse effective practice in the education sector. From a variety of education settings to established and growing companies, the event helps to not only benchmark class-leading provision, but assists the sector to consider best value products and good examples of impact in the classroom and beyond. A well-organised event, great for networking, I came away with some very useful new contacts. I am looking forward to next year!" - Dave Smith, Chair of the Board of Management of Naace - The Education Technology Association

“The Education Business Awards showcase the unsung heroes of the education sector. While teachers don’t get nearly as much praise as they deserve, those responsible for overseeing the essential aspects of running a school such as recruiting staff, catering, security and procurement most certainly don’t. These awards are a important contribution towards changing that, and should be marked as an important date in the educational calendar.” - Patrick Hayes, Director, BESA

Fantastic venue, good food, great master of ceremonies and no long speeches. A welcome boost for anyone in the industry that is working hard to improve on what they do…Richard Whiting, Ballard School
