Merseyside schools triumph at Educate Awards

THE Educate Awards took place at Liverpool Cathedral on Friday 17th November, recognising education professionals from around the North West.

Now in its twelfth year, the Educate Awards showcases the hard work and creativity in the education sector, from STEM and performing arts to sports and literacy. 

The awards also recognise the individuals who bring schools and colleges to life, from inspiring teachers and dedicated support staff to strategic leadership teams. 

In partnership with ASL and Ricoh, the Educate Awards welcomed over 700 guests. The evening was hosted by broadcaster Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross. 

Alongside the awards ceremony was a three-course gala dinner and entertainment from the region’s schools. Providing a soundtrack to the reception was Gateacre School student, Aiden Ellis. Opening the big event was Rainford High, which delivered a stellar performance of ‘Be Our Guest’ from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, followed by a dance and poetry performance from The Hollins in Accrington. The final performance of the night came from up-and-coming indie band, The Height, from Manchester. 

Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “Congratulations to the Sefton schools that won at this year’s Educate Awards! 

“A big well done to the runners-up and finalists too. Results this year were incredibly close, and judges had a difficult time deciding not only the shortlist but also overall the winners.” 

Kim added: “The Educate Awards team is proud to champion the innovation, diversity and dedication that is taking place in educational establishments around the region. Entries will open again in February 2024, and we encourage all types of schools and colleges to submit as many entries as they like, for free.”
