The best schools and teachers across the country have been shortlisted in this year’s Tes Schools Awards. The Tes Schools Awards, which have been dubbed the ‘Oscars of education’, is a prestigious awards programme which celebrates the best of education across the UK. It has now been revealed that LVS Ascot has been shortlisted in the category of Best Use of Technology.

The Tes Schools Awards recognises the very best teachers and schools from UK state and independent schools, across early years settings, primary and secondary.

James McNaughton, Head of Digital Transformation at LVS Ascot, said: “We are so pleased to be shortlisted for this award. It represents the hard work and genuine interest of our staff to embrace technology to improve our pupil's educational experience. We believe a Blended Learning approach to education gives students the range of skills they require for their bright futures and the opportunity to immerse themselves in the digital world.”

LVS Ascot is also delighted to announce that Learning Support Assistant Dawn Worcester has been shortlisted in the category of Teaching Assistant of the Year.

Dawn said: “Being nominated for Teaching Assistant of the Year means a great deal to me. My role is extremely rewarding, the connections we make in the classroom are incredibly special, and I'm beyond grateful to be a part of their learning journey. To be recognised for something I love doing is an award in itself, but to be a finalist is incredible. Thank you to my manager, Marie Ash, and LVS Ascot for nominating me, and to our lovely Neurodiversity team for supporting me.” 

The shortlist was compiled by a panel of expert judges, including school leaders and experts. The schools and teachers they chose showcase the best of education across the sector within 21 award categories, covering all areas of school education.

Jon Severs, Editor of Tes Magazine, said: "Congratulations to all the shortlisted entries - the standard was so high this year despite the challenges schools face. It is critical we celebrate excellence and share it widely so we can ensure that the fantastic work happening in education is properly recognised."

Winners will be announced on 21st June at a glittering gala awards night at the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, in London.

This year also marked the first time Tes operated this awards programme internationally with the Tes Awards for International Schools. More information on the international version of these awards can be found here:
