The ISA Annual Awards, a national competition for Members, concluded with a glittering gala dinner last night (8 November) where our winners were announced.
Entries to the Awards opened in March 2018, and members were invited to celebrate their achievements in a range of categories – from Innovation in STEM, to Excellence in the Arts, to Outstanding Engagement with Parents. We received over 150 entries this year, all at such high quality, and it was certainly a difficult decision for our judges to make! Judging took place in the Summer, and 42 finalists were announced in the Autumn Term.
The winners were announced at our highly anticipated Awards Ceremony, which took place at the Autumn Study Conference on 8 November and welcomed around 200 guests. The evening was hosted by Danny Crates, a Paralympic gold medallist.
We would like to thank everybody who entered the Awards this year – our judges thoroughly enjoy reading about the extraordinary work that ISA members do, in various areas of provision. Congratulations to all those who were shortlisted, and especially to our 14 winners – a wonderful achievement for all those involved.
