Co-educational Independent School of the Year – Entry Form
This award is for a co-educational senior school which offers an outstandingly rich experience for its students. The school can be of any size, and cater for any academic level; what matters is that the school can demonstrate clearly it has fostered excellence and enhanced its students’ ability to grow and develop through access to innovative and meaningful programmes and a cohesive ethos which is informed by the ‘student voice’.
Judges will be looking for something special – for the school to be going above and beyond in providing for its students, and will expect to see this passion for the student experience in how the entrant narrates its story and draws them into the life of the school.
Schools which offer a ‘diamond’ model of education can enter for this award.
The entry should:
- Successfully communicate the core characteristics, energy, culture and values of the co-educational nature of the school as well as the structures and initiatives which have allowed them expression.
- Explain how the student experience has been enriched.
- Demonstrate the sustainability and long-term impact of the activities described.
- Explain how the school is evolving to meet the changing needs of its students and offer a vibrant learning environment.
