Sutton High School has been shortlisted for the Tes Awards 2024

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 Sutton High School 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.

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.

Said Head Beth Dawson, “We are delighted to be recognised in the Best Use of Technology category by TES for our groundbreaking Space Technology Diploma which has been adopted across the entire GDST network. I am so proud that Sutton High’s Computer Science department is being commended for the groundbreaking work that it produces.   All credit to our Head of Computer Science, Ms Nicola Jane Buttigieg, who has masterminded the whole programme.”

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:
