The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the education sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the Tes Schools Awards 2022. It’s been revealed that Matthew Burke, Headmaster of St Edward’s Senior School has been shortlisted for the Headteacher of the Year Award.

Matthew Burke said “This is both a surprise and an honour to be shortlisted for this Award. This is as much for our school community as it is for me personally, as a leader is only as good as the team they work with. St Edward’s is very much a team of staff, students and parents, working together to enable us all to perform at our best.”

For the first time, the 2022 Tes Schools Awards has brought together the best teachers and schools from all UK state and independent early years settings, including both primary schools and secondary schools.

The panel of expert awards judges include school leaders, inspectors and education researchers. The objectivity, professionalism and high standards of the Tes Schools Awards judges and the judging process has helped establish them as a well-respected achievement for any school chosen as a finalist or winner.

Tes editor and chief judge of the Tes Schools Awards, Jon Severs, said: “This year has seen an incredibly high standard of entries to the Tes Schools Awards. Every teacher and school who has been nominated should be incredibly proud – it’s a fantastic achievement. We are looking forward to showcasing, as we do every year, just how vital our education professionals are to every facet of this country. Teachers, leaders and support staff have all played an enormous role as schools have battled with immense challenges over the last few years: this is our chance to say thank you for all that they do. After two years of virtual awards ceremonies, we are looking forward to celebrating our education heroes in person once again.”

The Tes Schools Awards Winners will be announced on Friday 17th June at a gala ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Park Hotel.
