The ISA Awards 2019 are now open for entry

19th March 2019

Entries have just opened for the ISA Awards 2019, an annual event that celebrates success in our 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 mental health provision.

The ISA Awards are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your schools’ high quality provision, and to celebrate your success with staff and fellow ISA Members. The Awards also allow you to promote your achievements both to existing and prospective parents, and the wider community, by providing schools with national publicity and the chance to proudly promote this via their own marketing platforms.

All schools in ISA Membership are able to enter. Schools may enter up to four awards. Deadline for submissions is Friday 26 July 2019.
