Results for the ISA Awards 2018 have been announced

19th September 2018

We are delighted to announce the shortlisted schools for the ISA Awards 2018. The Awards is an annual event that celebrates success in ISA Members’ schools, and recognises the breadth of quality and provision in independent education across the country. The Awards cover everything from Early Years provision, to innovation in Performing Arts or STEM.

You can see the entering criteria for each Award here.

The Awards this year have been even more hotly-contested than usual, with a 20% increase in entries. The judges thoroughly enjoyed reviewing our schools’ applications, all of them at such high quality. Judging took place over the Summer and it was certainly a tough decision for our judges to make.

The winners will be revealed at our prestigious Awards Ceremony at the Autumn Study Conference on 8 November, this year sponsored by the University of Southampton, and hosted by Paralympic Gold Medalist, Danny Crates. Click here for more information and to book your place.
