ISA Awards 2021 – Finalists Announced

20th September 2021

We are delighted to announce the ISA Awards 2021 Finalists. The ISA Awards recognise the breadth of excellence across the independent sector, and this year our judges were faced with an overwhelming number of outstanding entries. Congratulations to all of our shortlisted schools.

For the first time ever, we have also awarded Highly Commended awards to those schools who did not make the shortlist, but whose work is deemed worthy of recognition. 

ISA would like to thank everybody who took the time to enter the awards, particularly after what has been another challenging year for schools. The exceptional provision displayed throughout all the entries offers a true testament to the talented teachers and pupils that make up our diverse Association.

We look forward to celebrating with you all at our Awards Ceremony held at the Autumn Study Conference in November, where the winners will be announced.
