Educate Awards WOW winners shortlisted for national TES Award

Alsop High School is ending the term on a high today, after finding out it has been shortlisted for a national TES Schools Award.

Alsop is in contention for the ‘Community Impact’ award for its inspiring HOPE 2016 and FAITH 2017 initiatives.

The HOPE 2016 initiative won the WOW Recognition Award at last year’s Educate Awards.

The Educate Awards judges hailed the project as ‘inspirational’ as it successfully broke down stereotypes and created a more harmonious society.

“Life-long learning”

The school has continued the project this year with FAITH 2017. The initiatives were developed to foster cohesion and develop pride in the wider community of North Liverpool.

Now in its ninth year, the TES Schools Awards celebrate the extraordinary commitment, quality and innovation shown by teachers and support staff across the UK.

Headteacher Mr Joe Mangan, says: “In recent years Alsop has worked hard to build stronger links with parents and residents in both the immediate and wider North Liverpool community. We are committed to life-long learning.

“As the school approaches its centenary in 2019 our core aim is to impact upon the wider community and contribute to the regeneration of North Liverpool. I believe it is this aim which has enabled Alsop to be shortlisted for this prestigious award.”

FAITH 2017 is now building upon the success of HOPE 2016. Schools in North Liverpool are working together for the common good and encouraging collaboration between people of different faiths and cultures.

Peter Bull, Co-ordinator of FAITH 2017 adds: “We are delighted that Alsop has been shortlisted for the TES Schools Community Impact Award.

“We are proud because it is the recognition of the hard work that staff and students have invested into our school and neighbourhood.”

This week Alsop has hosted the northern premiere of 84303, a film about an 87 year old Holocaust Survivor, Mr Zigi Shipper and facilitated a Hillsborough Justice Day, culminating with Alsop students releasing 96 balloons in memory of those who died at Hillsborough.

The winners of the TES Schools Awards will be revealed at a gala awards evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London on Friday 23 June 2017.
