Education Awards: Search to find top of class

The winners at last year's education awards
The winners at last year's education awards

The Telegraph’s annual search to find the top teachers, inspirational leaders and high achievers is under way.

We have teamed up with the Chronicle & Echo and Northamptonshire County Council to shine the spotlight on young people, their teachers and young apprentices who do great work without getting the headlines.

We want to hear from readers, teachers, pupils, group leaders and parents or guardians who would like to nominate an individual, group or school who they feel deserves the recognition and an award for their achievements.

It could be the dinner lady who goes the extra mile, the classroom assistant who makes lessons come alive or the individual who has exceeded all expectations with their achievements.If you know someone who fits the bill, we would love to hear from you.

Telegraph editor Neil Pickford said: “This is a great way to highlight the success of children and schools across the county who are working hard and doing great things, and to give them the recognition they deserve. If you want to say thank you to that individual or group who has made a difference to your school or education in the county, please put them forward.”

Categories include lifetime achievement, inspirational teaching award and school of the year.

A panel of education experts will decide on each winner before they are revealed at an awards night at the Park Inn, Northampton from 6.30pm on July 3.

The awards will be celebrated alongside the Youth Ambition Awards, organised by Northamptonshire County Council to recognise the achievements of the county’s young people.

Entries can be sent to Karen West, Education Awards, Northamptonshire Newspapers, Ise Park, Rothwell Road, Kettering, NN16 8GA.
