King’s Leadership Academy Warrington Shortlisted for Tes Schools Awards 2021



We are delighted to announce that King’s Leadership Academy Warrington, part of The Great Schools Trust, has been shortlisted in the Tes Schools Awards 2021 for the category of Secondary School of the Year award.

This is great recognition for the staff at King’s Leadership Academy Warrington who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to provide fully synchronous remote teaching so no lessons were lost, and acknowledgement of their commitment to the wider community by sharing this innovative practice with over 200 schools nationally.

Shane Ierston, Principal of King’s Leadership Academy Warrington said:

At King’s, we believe education to be a fundamental human right, we were never going to allow the pandemic to stand in the way of that. Above all, I am extremely grateful and humbled by the support and commitment from our community, which enabled our students to remain safe and continue their learning during a very difficult time.

Tes editor, Jon Severs said:

It is more important this year than ever before to celebrate the fantastic work schools do, because in the past 12 months they have gone above and beyond to ensure pupils were able to be educated and be kept safe in extraordinary circumstances. We were inundated with entries that demonstrated just how hard the pandemic made the work of schools, and just how amazing the response from staff has been. We are looking forward to showcasing, as we do every year, just how vital our education professionals are to every facet of this country.

The winners of all categories will be announced on 25th June 2021
