Tes Schools Awards 2023: GDST finalists announced

The shortlist for the 2023 Tes Schools Awards has been announced and we’re delighted that GDST schools have been recognised.  

Three GDST schools were shortlisted in 2023 Tes Schools Awards. Well done to Sheffield Girls’, Wimbledon High School and Sutton High School who have all been recognised in the prestigious awards in education. 

The TES School Awards celebrates the very best teachers and schools from UK state and independent schools, including early years, primary and secondary schools.

Tes editor and chief judge of the Tes Schools Awards Jon Severs had this to say:

“With these awards we honour the education community, whom we have served for over 112 years. This year has seen some incredibly high quality entries. So every teacher and school who has been named in this shortlist should be very proud – it’s a fantastic achievement.”

We are thrilled that three GDST schools have been recognised by Tes: Sheffield Girls’ for Subject Lead of the Year (Secondary), Sutton High School for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Setting of the Year and Wimbledon High School for Inclusive School of the Year.

Sheffield Girls’ Head of Business and Economics, Stephen Coote, was shortlisted for the ‘Subject Lead of the Year’ for his work in encouraging enterprise amidst students and using his own skills and experience to support them to grow and develop their own businesses. 

Sutton High School’s Early Years Foundation Stage was singled out for its fantastic outdoor learning setting and are excited to showcase the wonder of their newly developed early years buildings.

Wimbledon High School’s important & pioneering work of neurodiversity was recognised in the Inclusive School of the Year category of the awards.
