About the Educate Awards
These regional awards showcase the work of schools and colleges which are delivering outstanding education and helping students achieve their full potential. With more than 21 categories, the shortlist recognises inspiring teachers, dedicated support staff and strategic leadership teams.
The awards, in partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh, are the largest education awards in the region and will take place at Liverpool Cathedral on Friday 19 November.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Educate Awards, and organisers hope it will be extra special after2020’s ceremony had to be held virtually due to the pandemic.
Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “A huge well done to the schools and colleges who have made this year’s shortlist.
“After a difficult 18 or so months, it is extremely important that we recognise the amazing schools and colleges which have supported students, families, staff and the wider communities during the pandemic. The calibre of entries was absolutely incredible and deciding on the shortlist was a really difficult process.
“As 2020’s ceremony didn’t take place in its usual format, we are excited to be planning a spectacular event which makes up for last year. We’ll be revealing some really exciting new details over the next few weeks so keep an eye out!”
Kim added: “We look forward to celebrating with you all on 19 November!”
