The wait is almost over for schools and colleges across the North West as the shortlist for the Educate Awards 2019, in partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh is soon to be announced.
The team behind the awards were completely overwhelmed with the number of submissions received on the deadline at the end of June.
Since then, the esteemed panel of judges have been hard at work carefully reviewing each entry and making the difficult decision of compiling the shortlist of schools and colleges who have really shone in each of the 21 categories.
Feedback from judges so far has been nothing but positive. Comments include: “An inspiring example of a school which prioritises the mental health and well-being not just of the children but of staff and the whole community.”
“What shines through is an atmosphere of belonging, of celebrating the ability and achievements of every pupil and an exemplary approach to pastoral care and peer education.”
Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “We know many schools and colleges are desperate to know the shortlist for this year’s awards and we are working towards revealing it by the end of September at the latest.
“The judges currently have the extremely tough job of reading through each and every entry and deciding who has made the prestigious shortlist.”
Kim added: “We suggest to those who have entered to keep an eye on the Educate Awards website and Twitter account for all the latest news and announcements.”
