Independent School of the Year for Contribution to Social Mobility – Entry Form
This award is for the school which most impresses the judges by the way in which it has made an inspirational and decisive contribution to social mobility in the past year. For the purposes of this award, social mobility is defined as ensuring that young people can fulfil aspirational choices in life, regardless of their social or economic background. The contribution described can be either within and beyond the school community – or both.
The winning school will demonstrate a philosophical recognition of the importance of social mobility to young people in their local or wider community and show evidence of the practical and positive impact their contribution has had on helping more young people have greater opportunities in life.
The entry should:
- Explain how the student experience in the school has been enriched
- Demonstrate the sustainability and impact of the activities described on the life of the school
