Schools and colleges honoured at the Educate Awards

Education news

Outstanding schools and colleges from across the North West were triumphant, on Friday 29 January, after winning at the Educate Awards 2020. The ceremony, in partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh, took place virtually and was streamed on YouTube, due to the current coronavirus restrictions in place. The Educate Awards would have normally been held at the Liverpool Cathedral in November 2020. Presented by broadcaster Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross, the live ceremony connected with judges and sponsors, via Zoom, who revealed the winning schools. The event then crossed live to the individuals from the winning schools to find out their reaction in real time. Each of the 21 awards focus on different aspects of school life, including careers and enterprise, STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects, SEND (special educational needs and disabilities), as well as sport, the arts and mental health and wellbeing. Inspiring individuals are also recognised through the Teacher of the Year Award, School Support Star of the Year Award, and the latest category to be introduced, the School Governor of the Year Award. Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “A huge congratulations to all the winning schools and colleges! I would also like to say a big well done to the runners-up, those who were shortlisted and everyone who took the time to enter last year. You should all be very proud of yourselves!” “It has been really tough for those working in schools and we are so pleased that we have managed to find a way to shine a spotlight on the hard work and dedication that goes on inside and outside of school. We hope this has given a much-needed lift to those in education, given the incredibly challenging times we are going through at the moment.” Kim added: “2021 is the tenth year of the Educate Awards and we are very excited to start planning an extra special event!” Associate sponsors of the Educate Awards include: All About STEM, Angel Solutions, CareersInc, CER, CPMM Media Group, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust, LSSP, Satis Education, SupplyWell and Winstanley College.
